Soulsound is teaming up with Birmingham City University to deliver a four-day seminar programme that will explore ‘Calibration & Design Techniques for Modern Sound Systems’.
The programme, which is aimed at intermediate and experienced sound engineers, is to be held at Birmingham City University, Millennium Point.
Presented by experienced sound and system engineer, Merlijn van Veen (pictured), the seminars are intended to remove the ‘magic’ surrounding sound systems, providing participants with the means and physical insight necessary to create predictable sound system designs, regardless of brand and speaker type, and then verify the results using the dual channel FFT analyser (SIM 3, SMAART v7, SysTune, etc.).
Merlijn will thoroughly investigate the complete transmission path from source to receiver in the acoustical, electrical and psycho-acoustical domains. He explained: “After completion of the seminar programme, sound engineers will be able to provide themselves with the same reference over and over again, like a painter who begins each painting with a blank canvas. The system engineers will be able to design a system that delivers the mixing position sound to the entire audience.”
Soulsound founder Darryn de la Soul added: “We presented this seminar in London earlier this year and it was a huge success. It was great to see lightbulbs switching on in people’s heads and misconceptions being replaced with demonstrable fact. We have a fantastic environment to do it again at Birmingham City University.”
The ‘Calibration & Design Techniques for Modern Sound Systems’ seminars will take place on 27-30 June 2016 at Birmingham City University, Millennium Point, Curzon Street, Birmingham, B4 7XG, between 10am and 6pm each day.
