Orbital Sound Launches New Training Course To Help Theatre Sound Operators

Orbital Sound has announced a brand new training course, designed to help aspiring theatre sound operators take their show mixing skills to the next level.
The two-day course is being staged at Orbital’s purpose-built training centre in Brixton, and focuses on the practical skills and theory behind the best-practice FOH mixing requirements of musicals.
The course emphasis is firmly on what is required to achieve sound operating excellence, with principle tutors Marcus Wadland (UK tours of Blood Brothers, Never Forget, Whistle Down The Wind among others) and Daniel Bailey (West End productions including High School Musical, Rent, and Fame) bringing their own extensive mixing experience to the table for an intrinsically hands-on curriculum. As well as the essential theory behind mixing, Dan and Marcus will be introducing the students to the latest digital mixing technology from a variety of console manufacturers, whether the application is large-scale West End/Broadway shows or smaller regional productions.
The course numbers are limited to just 12, with a low-cost non-refundable registration fee of £55 + VAT required to secure a place. More information is available from Alex Waddle at training@orbitalsound.com.
