The San Francisco offices of Delicate Productions recently conducted an in-depth three-day training session for the Martin Audio MLA Compact loudspeaker system.
Attended by 12 top-tier Delicate touring and regional engineers along with notable independent engineers and facility owners interested in MLA technology, the session had a practical mission, according to general manager George Edwards.
“We currently own an inventory of MLA and MLA Compact enclosures,” Edwards explains, “and we feel that any product with this level of depth and sophistication requires not only our staff to be properly trained but also allows exposure to what Delicate and Martin Audio have to offer in sound reinforcement.
“So we put all of the attendees as close to MLA as they could possibly get with the person who knows the most about the technology, Ferrit Rowe.”
Martin “Ferrit” Rowe, technical training manager for MLA, headed the informative training, which started with basic audio and array studies before moving on to MLA Compact and VU-Net control software, system design, rigging and setup. Extensive one-on-one listening and Q&A sessions supplemented the sessions.
Edwards concludes, “It was incredibly helpful. Not just for our engineers, but for our guests as well. As the largest Martin Audio house in Northern California, it’s obviously in our and the product’s best interest to further educate anyone who wants to know more about MLA and MLA Compact.”
