Hong Kong-based Max Production Ltd, one of the first adopters of Martin Audio MLA and MLA Compact line arrays in the Far East, recently underwent full technical training.
Following the recent purchase of an MLA Compact 24, both Martin Audio regional application support engineer Chris Pyne and technical training manager Martyn (Ferrit) Rowe went to Max Production headquarters in Sha Tin district to carry out the intensive 3-day training course afforded to all Martin Audio MLA network partners.
The course was conducted by Rowe and attended by 10 Max Production senior and junior staff members, as well as technicians and an interpreter from Budee, the MLA territorial distributor.
Pyne, who conducted the introduction and initiation course, explains, “The formal class room audio theory and system functions plus software and venue design studies take place over two days. The third day is dedicated to system rigging and safety, with system optimizations, listening tests and problem solving. We also do a sub bass array and system design class.”
He confirms that he will be returning in March to support Max Production with a concert at the Asia World Arena utilizing the company’s entire MLA and MLA Compact inventory.
Pyne adds, “It was an enjoyable experience, with the Max management clearly pleased and excited by owning the first MLA system in Hong Kong. South-east Asia is proving a very strong growth area for both MLA and MLA Compact.”
