Sound Productions, located in Irving, TX (outside of Dallas) is the site of Meyer Sound’s The Mixing Workshop, a two-day seminar to be offered on August 21 and 22 (9 am to 5 pm CST) that focuses on the role of the mix engineer in live audio production, presented by noted mix engineer Buford Jones.
The seminar will be held at the brand-new showroom and training spaces of Sound Productions, which has served the pro audio and commercial audio industry for more than 41 years under the leadership of CEO Charles Kitch.
With the seminar, Jones will provide attendees the benefit of his vast experience working with an array of top artists from numerous genres in a seminar that goes beyond the technical to artistic and even political concerns. Mixing tools and techniques, system tutoring, mixing in concert halls, record producer involvement, surround mixing, mixing in isolation will also be discussed.
In addition, Jones will address issues of communication and trust between the artist and the mix engineer, and the politics involved in any production, from large-scale tours to corporate events and house of worship productions.
The curriculum itinerary:
• Day 1 will include a lecture and presentation that emphasizes the benefits of mixing on linear sound systems. This will be demonstrated by playback of live recording and discussions of the various sound systems used.
• Day 2 will expand on live mixing, demonstrations of implementing common signal processing as well as giving attendees an opportunity to mix and receive advice on how to improve their skills from a master of the trade.
