MARCH 22nd: WATTS THE PROBLEM?
Understanding Loud Speakers, Amplifiers, and Microphone Placement
From a simple singer/songwriter portable sound system in a small coffee shop to a large outdoor music festival, you'll get an understanding of what size sound system you need for your application. Also learn how proper microphone selection and placement will improve your overall performance.
MARCH 29th: THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS GOOD FEEDBACK
Room Equalization, Real Time Analyzers, Feedback Eliminators and Dynamics Processing
In our second session, we'll look at what causes feedback and what you can do to prevent it. We will also use a real time analyzer to EQ the room so you can hear the difference in the sound system with proper equalization techniques.
