Prism Sound kicks off Mic to Monitor roadshow

Beginning tomorrow through until September, Prism Sound’s Mic to Monitor tour aims to dispel the many myths surrounding the recording process, via presentations by well-known recording professionals and equipment demos.

 Prism Sound’s educational Mic to Monitor UK tour begins 23 April. Each seminar will feature presentations from recording professionals who will answer audience questions on recording techniques. There will also be the opportunity to demo and win recording equipment from Prism Sound and SADiE – and from PMC and DPA Microphones, which are supporting the tour. Mic to Monitor’s first stop is at Pulse College, Windmill Lane Studios, Dublin. During May and June it will visit the University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol; Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge; SAE, Glasgow; Alchemea College, London; LIPA, Liverpool; Futureworks, Manchester and City University, Birmingham. Acclaimed mastering engineer Aidan Foley (Foo Fighters, Van Morrison, U2) will speak at the first session in Dublin, where he will reveal the tricks and techniques he used on the hugely successful Dead Can Dance album, Anastasis. Foley will discuss his approach to the vinyl, CD and other digital releases during the project and the challenges he had to overcome in and out of the studio. Other confirmed speakers include Simon Little (Jessie Jay, Quantic), Jake Gosling, (pictured; Ed Sheeran, Paloma Faith, One Direction) and Award-winning mastering engineer Many Parnell, whose recent projects include Bjork, Feist and Frightened Rabbit. Graham Boswell, Prism Sound’s sales director, said: “These seminars are all taking place at educational establishments that offer courses in music recording and broadcast engineering because we recognise that this is where the producers and engineers of the future are currently getting their grounding. The aim is to give them – and any industry professional who wants to brush up on their skills – the chance to discuss new techniques, demo cutting-edge equipment and software and learn first-hand from the experiences of our guest speakers.” Full details of dates, venues and guest speakers, as well as registration for the events, is available on the Prism Sound website.
