UK: The company is aiming "to dispel many of the popular myths" surrounding recording, writes David Davies. Prism Sound's 'From Mic to Monitor' roadshow will visit universities and colleges in six UK cities during a two-week period commencing November 17th.

Organised in conjunction with Apple and PMC, the seminars will feature short presentations from all three companies, along with a talk from a guest recording professional, who will also be available to answer audience questions.

"We are focusing our attention on the educational sector because we recognise that this is where the producers and engineers of the future are currently getting their grounding in the recording process," said Prism Sound's sales and marketing manager, Jody Thorne. "The aim is to give students and invited guests from the audio industry a chance to discuss recording techniques and allow them to demo the cutting-edge equipment and software that is currently in daily use in the commercial world."

Seminar speakers will include Prism Sound's sales and applications engineer, Simon Woollard, and Hathor Audio's John Goldstraw, with the latter set to discuss monitoring issues, speaker positioning, acoustics and the importance of deploying high-resolution monitoring systems throughout the recording process.

As part of the tour, Prism Sound is hoping to present a demo set-up featuring its Orpheus recording interface (pictured) and PMC monitors. PMC, meanwhile, has revealed that it will showcase the IB2S passive monitor powered by Bryston 4B STT amplifiers, as well as the active compact DB1S-A monitor, in order to "demonstrate a broad spectrum of monitoring configurations".

'From Mic to Monitor' is set to visit Cambridge, London, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester and Nottingham. Full details can be found at the Prism Sound website (link below).
