This intermediate workshop is designed for folks who already know how to set-up and run a small PA, but are looking to become more familiar with fine tuning a system for the best possible sound using whatever gear and space is available. This session will also be useful for musicians looking to communicate better with professional sound engineers, or to tweak their own sound at small gigs. We will take an in depth look into equalization, (both channel EQ and graphic/parametric bus EQ) to learn how to shape sounds to create a cohesive natural mix for a band both onstage in the monitors and in the front of house. We will look at advanced feedback elimination techniques, proper gain staging, monitor mixing, stage volume management, and room acoustics. This workshop will conclude with a hands-on mixing session where attendees will set up a multichannel mix with stereo mains and 2 stage monitors using a digital console.
