Mic to Monitor 2017

Educational seminars and networking in sound recording & production with VIP guest presenters, dispelling myths and educating on current techniques and professional skills.


Welcome to Prism Sound’s 2017 Mic to Monitor tour! 23rd March to 16th November 2017

Prism Sound teams up with universities, colleges, industry experts and VIP artists, producers and engineers around the world to offer fantastic FREE, fast paced and enjoyable learning and networking opportunities for those interested in music, sound recording and production.

This year we are continuing the well-received tour in the US and Europe!

Prism Sound’s “Mic to Monitor” seminars aim to sweep aside the myths, the jargon and the plain nonsense that is too often peddled as fact in the wonderful recording industry. We tell it like it is, to help you get the best out of the tools you use regardless of the brand.

Prism Sound brings in key partners to deliver technical seminars on a wide range of subjects under the broad heading of music and sound recording and production. Topics include but are not limited to: room acoustics; microphone technology and techniques; loudspeaker technology; interface and converter technology; hearing safety and in-ear monitoring as well as dipping into psycho-acoustics and perception. Guest topics include recording techniques, mixing, remixing and mastering and much more. We can’t cover all the topics in one session so presentations do vary from venue to venue, but you can check the programme for individual events. Also appearing are some very special VIP guest presenters currently working as artistes, producers or engineers within the audio and music industry to share their unique experience and expertise. We hope that you will be able to join us at one (or more!) of the events and learn more about recording technology, the latest techniques and to join us in busting some of the popular myths that have evolved in the industry.

We will be visiting various locations in both the US and Europe with dates and venues to be announced shortly!

We look forward to meeting you. Look out for venue announcements as tickets will be available on a first come first served basis.

See you soon at a Mic to Monitor event near you!
