Anaheim, CA (January 17, 2018)—When the inaugural [email protected] Pro Sound Symposium debuts next week at the 2018 NAMM Show, there will be plenty of educational offerings for pros of all levels working in every corner of the industry. While attendees are looking forward to the event, so are the presenters—just take Michael Bangs, veteran FOH and monitor engineer (Katy Perry, Eric Clapton, Aerosmith) and Jerry Lopez (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Chicano Batman, The Neighbourhood).
Bangs, who is also Allen & Heath USA’s live sound touring manager, will present three 60-minute ‘Masterclass’ sessions to share tips and tricks learned in real-life on the road, working closely with engineers of all levels. Bangs’ first session, a specialized ‘Festival Mixing Masterclass’, will offer hands-on training with emphasis on the quick changeovers needed in a high-pressure festival environment.
Able to offer insight for everyone, however, Bangs will also present a ‘House of Worship Masterclass’ to demonstrate general concepts as well as dLive-specific insights for improving worship mix intelligibility and balance for congregations of every size.
Bangs’ third session, ‘Monitoring Mixing Masterclass,’ will explore mixing for in-ear monitors, wedges or a combination, offering guiding principles to help ensure success for the performers on stage and the best experience for fans in the audience.
In addition to these three ‘Masterclass’ sessions, Bangs will present a half-day ‘dLive Certification Class’ which offers InfoComm International Renewal Units (RU).
Meanwhile, Jerry Lopez (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Chicano Batman, The Neighbourhood) will present ‘dLive en Español’ (entirely in Spanish). Topics within this ‘Masterclass’ include Allen & Heath dLive console operation, signal routing concepts and system configuration tips for quickly setting up a basic mix.
Preregistration is required for all ‘AES at NAMM’ sessions and seating is limited.
