HARMAN’s Soundcraft Continues Popular 'Mixing with Professionals' Seminars With Live Sound Engineer Dave Kay

Soundcraft’s ‘Mixing with Professionals’ series has become popular in the US and abroad with industry pros and newcomers alike, offering tips and tricks about using Soundcraft Vi Series consoles from some of live sound’s most experienced engineers. On August 21, Soundcraft continues the series at the HARMAN campus in Northridge, California with seminars hosted by internationally renowned front of house engineer Dave Kay.
Dave Kay is a hugely respected front of house engineer who has traveled the world mixing live sound in every imaginable variety of outdoor and indoor venue. He is a director at Liverpool, UK-based Adlib Audio and has mixed shows in the US, England, Australia, Japan and numerous locations around the globe, ranging from festivals with The Coral, Scissor Sisters, The Lightning Seeds and Scottish band Del Amitri.
Responding to feedback from attendees of the MwP USA program over the last year, this program will now be more focused on formal training, taught by a working engineer. Dave Kay will be hosting a hands-on tutorial with Vi consoles, with 2-3 guests per Vi console in a classroom atmosphere. Guests can expect to enjoy the stories and tales from Dave’s years of experience on the road, and also learn how to configure and mix a show using the Vi series of consoles. If guests bring their own USB stick, they can save their settings and take them on the road for their next gig or carry on working on their show settings using the Soundcraft Virtual Vi offline editor, available free on the Soundcraft website.
Kay knows his way around a Soundcraft Vi6 digital live sound console better than most—he road-tested prototypes of the console while it was in development.
“The Soundcraft Vi6 is user-friendly, without skimping on any essential features,” said Kay. “It has been designed with the engineer in mind to give as much visual feedback that you would take for granted on an analog console. With some digital consoles you have to scroll through layers of menus and screens. The Vi6’s interface does not slow you down, yet the snapshot feature is very comprehensive and enables you to go as deep as you want to go with it.”
The course will run from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm with lunch provided. The course is free to attend but registration is required and space is limited. Attendance is open to freelance or employed professional sound engineers. Details are available at http://usa.soundcraft.com/ and participants can register by sending an e-mail to [email protected]
