US/UK: Audio, sound design and lighting software developer Stage Research has scheduled two one-day training sessions in London to introduce UK-based sound designers to SFX 6, the latest version of its live entertainment sound playback software. The training sessions will take place next Tuesday and Wednesday (January 29th and 30th) at the Central School of Speech and Drama in central London, writes David Davies.

Described as "more than just an update", SFX 6 includes a number of major new features and changes, including an ASIO sound playback engine, supporting 16-bit or better WAV, MP3 or WMA audio files; a change in name for Fades to Volume Changes, with the ability to completely customise Volume Change curves; a revamped user interface, and Undo/Redo functions.

The one-day training sessions will give UK sound designers a thorough guide (including hands-on experience) to the new features in classes limited to 16-18 people. The format will be an introductory session and training in the morning, with more advanced tutoring in the afternoon and a sound designers' discussion to conclude. Lunch will be provided, along with snacks and soft drinks.

"Since SFX 6 is a significant upgrade, we're looking to quickly get users up-to-speed with the new features," Stage Research partner Carlton Guc, who will conduct the sessions, tells PSN-e. "SFX 6 now has the ability to route audio through a matrix mixer, nest cue parts, multiple level undo and has a powerful scripting language. A novice can sit down and begin to use SFX - however, to truly gain an understanding of the complex features will take some time or training."

Representatives from KAVE Theatre Services (exclusive distributor of Stage Research products in the UK) and Stage Research's main systems integrator in the UK, CueOne, will be on hand to answer questions regarding product support and systems integration.

Registration is required, with a session fee of US$195 US per person. For further registration information, contact Gregg Fisher at g.fisher@cssd.ac.uk or visit the Stage Research website.
