Harman’s Soundcraft is taking its popular “Mixing with Professionals” (MwP) series to Las Vegas at NAB 2013. Hosting the sessions will be Ken Newman (pictured), front-of-house engineer for Barry Manilow and owner of Newman Audio. He has also mixed live sound for Chris Isaak, Anita Baker, Stevie Nicks, Liza Minnelli, Paul Anka and other top performers.
Newman will provide formal training on the Soundcraft Vi Series consoles while discussing his experiences working with Soundcraft equipment. Participants will be given a USB stick so they can save their settings and take them on the road for their next gig, or continue working on their settings using the Soundcraft Virtual Vi offline editor, which is available free on the Soundcraft Website.
“The MwP session in Las Vegas is the perfect opportunity for veteran engineers, beginners and interested NAB attendees to get hands-on experience with Soundcraft consoles while learning from Ken Newman, one of the most accomplished FOH engineers in the industry,” says Katy Templeman-Holmes of Soundcraft Studer. “Anyone interested is encouraged to attend.”
The MwP sessions will be held on April 10 at the ARIA Hotel on 3730 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Las Vegas, Nevada. Two time slots will be available: from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The course is free to attend but registration is required and space is limited.
