In this workshop we will look at more advanced sound engineering techniques for musicians including:
• More advanced use of EQ including the use of swept EQs and Q controls.
• Using a graphic EQ for feedback suppression and room compensation.
• Use of dynamic effects (compressor, gate).
• Using reverb in your mix.
• More advanced mic techniques and multi mic technique
• Comparing and using different mixing desks including digital mixing desks
These workshops are led by Dr. Mark Neal who co-runs the Sonic Lodge. He has a PhD in Musical Acoustics and huge experience in live sound from both from behind the sound desk and as a performer. There will be plenty of time throughout the workshops for you to ask any questions.
