SADiE seminar at Bournemouth University in the UK
Prism Sound and SADiE have announced their next series of free educational seminars designed for students, producers and engineers. The seminars will fall into two categories—broadcast and music recording—with a date at each venue devoted to each topic.
The mastering seminars will focus on how SADiE digital audio workstations can be used in a mastering environment and also how SADiE location recorders fit into the recording chain. Guest speakers, along with staff from Prism Sound and SADiE, will discuss the practical aspects of mastering, as well as exploring the reasons why SADiE has become the craft editor of choice for many professionals.
Prism Sound’s “Mic To Monitor” tour aims to dispel many of the myths surrounding the recording process. Each seminar will feature short presentations from Prism Sound staff and from guest speakers, including recording professionals who can answer audience questions on recording techniques.
Prism Sound and SADiE are dedicated to providing training initiatives to the producers and engineers of tomorrow, which is why the seminars are all taking place at educational establishments that offer courses in music recording and broadcast engineering.
“Students need the opportunity to learn skills that are applicable to the industries in which they will ultimately work,” says Jody Thorne, Prism Sound’s sales and marketing manager. “They also need to know about the equipment they will regularly come into contact with. We are focusing our attention on the educational sector because we recognize that this is where the producers and engineers of the future are currently getting their grounding. The aim is to give them—and any industry professional who wants to brush up on their skills—the chance to discuss new techniques, demo cutting-edge equipment and software, and learn first-hand from the experiences of our guest speakers.”
The tour kicks off in October in both the UK and the U.S. In the U.S. the tour will visit the following cities and states, with venues to be announced later: Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Texas, Boston, New York, Nashville and Miami.
The companies state that full details of dates, venues and guest speakers will be posted on the Prism Sound and SADiE Websites over the summer.
