Buford Jones and attendees at a mixing workshop in Brentwood, Tenn.
Buford Jones, front-of-house mixing engineer (Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Prince, David Bowie, many more) and founder of Meyer Sound’s office in Nashville, has been promoted to the role of live audio and education specialist. In his new role, Jones will expand his focus on education by bringing his Mixing Workshop online, while continuing to host hands-on sessions around the world. One of his first Webinars is scheduled for October 18 entitled “Subs on an Aux.” Registration is free and can be done online at meyersound.com/events/seminars/webinars.php.
“Mixing live sound has been my life’s work,” says Jones. “I’ve been fortunate to work on many interesting tours across a variety of music genres. I’m excited about taking my class online and sharing tips and tricks that have helped me become a better, more consistent engineer. It’s gratifying to know that I’m giving back to the next generation of engineers and hopefully they can help inspire others to love what a live show offers.”
Lee Moro has been appointed to as the new touring liaison and manager of Meyer Sound’s Nashville office at Soundcheck.
