Trigger is the brainchild of Rick Simon, a vastly experienced Television Sound Supervisor.
Rick mixes the sound for television programmes, with a focus on light entertainment. He has worked on shows in the UK, ranging from TFI Friday to the Brit Awards and Britain’s Got Talent.
Rick has also worked as a Television Grams Operator. This is a highly skilled position that oversees the design and delivery of music and sound effects for a broadcast production.
In his work as a Grams Op, Rick was a significant contributor of ideas and features to an early PC software application called SpotOn. But it soon became apparent that, due to it’s limitations and dependencies on third party applications, there could be a better solution. Rick required a stand-alone application that offered a faster workflow, included all the features he would ever require and worked well in other playback scenarios too.
So Rick decided to write a piece of software that could do this.
