Led by Pat Brown, Syn-Aud-Con is noted for the depth and quality of its educational efforts. Here’s the schedule of upcoming sessions: Core Principles Of Audio: Provides knowledge that is essential for operating a sound system. Important subjects such as microphone selection, mixer setup, and signal flow are extensively covered. The emphasis is on the practical rather than the theoretical, using real-world explanations of potentially complex subjects. Multimedia listening demonstrations drive the points home and convey a level of understanding that will help you head off problems before they occur.
