Soundcraft continues its Mixing with Professionals (MwP) educational series with a stop in Dallas this coming May 15. MwP offers tips and tricks about using Soundcraft Vi Series consoles from some of live sound’s most accomplished engineers.

Ken Newman, front of house engineer for Barry Manilow and owner of Newman Audio will conduct the Dallas sessions. Currently on tour with Manilow, Newman has done live sound for Chris Isaak, Anita Baker, Stevie Nicks, Liza Minnelli, Paul Anka and other top performers. No stranger to a front of house console, He’s mixed sound since 1972.

Newman will give MwP attendees in-depth training on the Soundcraft Vi Series consoles in a classroom atmosphere that allows plenty of hands-on training. If participants bring a USB stick they can save their settings and take them on the road for their next gig, or keep working on their settings using the Soundcraft Virtual Vi offline editors, which is available free on the Soundcraft website.

“I really enjoy doing the Soundcraft Mixing with Professionals seminars and so do the attendees, who learn a lot about using the Vi Series consoles in the real-world of live performance,” said Newman. “There’s no console I’d rather have in front of me than a Soundcraft Vi6—it puts everything I need at my fingertips and let’s me handle the most demanding live mixing situations with complete assurance.”

The upcoming May 15 MwP sessions will be held at Dobbs Stanford Corporation, 2715 Electronic Lane in Dallas. Two time slots will be available from 9 am – Noon and from 2 pm – 6 pm.

The course is free to attend but registration is required and space is limited. More details are available here,  and participants can register via e-mail at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
