from blue sky to blueprints
unlocking the potential of your system
There are many fine choices for audio, video, lighting, special effects, and show control systems. Over the years, we've come to expect a high level of quality and reliability from certain vendors, but we're ultimately manufacturer-agnostic. We're not loyal to one particular brand; we're loyal to the right choice for your project.
DSP Plugin Store
We create DSP plugins to leverage the power of the QSC Q-SYS platform in exciting new ways. Our plugin development focus is to address problems that don't currently have an existing solution. Our plugins offer extended functionality for your system and can decrease your overall system programming time.

it's all about the details
Careful attention to details during the commissioning of your project can help you avoid surprises during opening week. However, you may have limited time to attend to the minutiae. Fortunately, Forward Thinking Designs thrives on those details. We are conscientious and meticulous, with decades in our books managing the technical aspects of themed entertainment. Let us partner with you during the final stages of your project so that you can approach the big day with confidence!
During the installation, you need to know that someone is looking out for your interests and making sure that you are getting what you paid for. We are experts in keeping our projects on schedule and coordinating the efforts of different vendors. We'll make sure that no corners are cut during the integration process. We'll also work with those vendors and your in-house staff to fully test the new system before vendors and contractors leave the job site.
Finally, thoroughly documenting the project and training your on-site personnel is absolutely critical to the future success of the project. The owners and operators should know the final product at least as well as we do. After all, your staff is a very big part of the equation. Unfortunately, this important step is often overlooked. We can produce standard operating procedures, user manuals, and troubleshooting guides based on your system's unique design, implementation and programming. We endeavor to put as much care into documentation and training manuals as into your design and programming. In short, the job just isn't done until after we've finished the training manual and trained your staff on the completed system.
With us managing your project, you're free to focus on your next big idea!
