USA - Allen & Heath will present a wide range of classes at the inaugural AES@NAMM Pro Sound Symposium to be held concurrently with the 2018 NAMM Show.
Jeff Hawley, marketing manager for Allen & Heath USA commented, “We are proud to join a select group of respected pro audio manufacturers in support of AES and NAMM to provide top-tier training for engineers of all levels and backgrounds. Allen & Heath will offer something for everyone at this symposium from focused masterclass-style sessions to a full dLive certification class with InfoComm International Renewal Units (RU).”
Michael Bangs, veteran FOH and monitor engineer (Katy Perry, Eric Clapton, Aerosmith) and Allen & Heath USA live sound touring manager, will present three 60-minute Masterclass sessions to share tips and tricks accumulated over his years of experience on the road working closely with engineers of all levels.
Bangs’ first session, a specialised Festival Mixing Masterclass, will offer hands-on training with emphasis on the quick changeovers needed in a high-pressure festival environment.
Focused on the special needs of the church audio operator, Bangs' second AES@NAMM session, House of Worship Masterclass, will demonstrate general concepts as well as dLive-specific tips and tricks for improving worship mix intelligibility and balance. Whether mixing for a congregation of 50 or 5000, a single guitar and vocal or a full praise band and worship leaders, this session will present the skills to deliver an optimal audio experience.
Learn how to approach the all-important skill of creating an effective live monitor mix in Bangs’ third session, Monitoring Mixing Masterclass. Whether dealing with in-ear monitors, wedges or a combination, Bangs will share guiding principles to help ensure success for the performers on stage and the best experience for fans in the audience.
In addition, Bangs will present a half-day dLive Certification Class which offers InfoComm International Renewal Units (RU).
Rounding-out the training series, Jerry Lopez (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Chicano Batman, The Neighbourhood) will present dLive en Español (entirely in Spanish). Topics
