Orbital Sound Announces Theatre Sound 2-Day Training Course In October

Orbital Sound, the leading sound and communication systems specialist for the theatre, event and broadcast markets, has unveiled its latest training programme to take place in October, focusing on practical sound techniques for theatre with hands-on, application-based training.
Scheduled to run between October 26- 27, Developing Sound Skills for Theatre is intended primarily for students wanting to extend their operational expertise in theatre sound, and will take place at Orbital's purpose-built 225m2 seminar facility in Brixton, south London.
The course is free of charge, offering students the opportunity to benefit from a wide cross-section of technical disciplines, including communications, networking, loudspeaker system set-up and control and mixing practices.
The course will be led by Orbital's training manager, Theo Holloway, who explained the rationale behind the autumn training programme: "The popularity of our annual course underlines the appetite among students to learn a set of skills that can help them with a practical technical career in theatre sound. At Orbital Sound, we have a vested interest in seeing new generations of well-qualified theatre sound technicians coming up through the ranks, and are committed to encouraging the best working practices. Over the past eight years, we have invested considerable time and energy in developing training courses that deliver the right combination of theory and practical skills, catering for broad variety of applications, skill levels and interests. This latest course is all about helping students to gain confidence in using the technology for real. The emphasis is on hands-on training that will familiarise them with the latest systems and techniques, and we are receiving considerable support from d&b audiotechnik, Yamaha and HME with this course."
The programme includes:
  • An in-depth focus on the use, application and integration of radio and wired communication system, running across both days of the course, with students able to practice using selected products from the HME range.
  • The theory and application of digital mixing consoles, using products from Yamaha Professional Audio, on Day 1 of the course.
  • The theory and application of digital mixing consoles, using products from Yamaha Professional Audio, on Day 1 of the course.
Students interested in attending the free-of-charge training are invited to apply to training@orbitalsound.co.uk. With the number of places on each day limited to 24 students, admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
