Over the last 20 years our two day live sound engineering course has been very popular as we teach all the necessary skills to enable you to start sound engineering your first gig after just 2 days. It is ideal both for those that just wish to sound engineer as a hobby such as for their local church, school musical or amateur dramatic group or those that wish to start a career as a sound engineer. The key topics were put together after discussions with leading rental companies as the essential skill set required to start working for them.
What is the structure?
The course includes essential in-depth theory on the principles of sound, acoustics and gain structure and from this moves onto explaining all about the equipment, components and settings you should use. There is in-depth training on patching in and using the mixing desk, understanding and using EQ, Grouping, Routing, using the Matrix and recording a live mix. We teach about setting and creating monitor mixes show how to conquer feedback and using a variety of ringing out techniques including using modern day apps. This is followed by the micing up of essential instruments such as guitars, bass, drums and keyboards. We have had numerous students attend our weekend course with no previous experience who after completion have gone on to forge new careers as sound engineers.
