Sennheiser has made its award-winning Pro Talk Series, which features audio professionals sharing their insider tips and describing their experiences, available online at www.sennheiser.com/protalkseries.

As well as the series of Pro Talk videos, the new site also includes articles with key insights taken from the interviews.

The “Pro Talk Series by Sennheiser” has already attracted a considerable audience on YouTube – and accolades have followed. The first season won a TEC Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in 2018, and Season 2 has just been nominated for the 2020 TEC Awards.

“The Pro Talk Series is something we at Sennheiser are very passionate about. Our intention is to bring audio enthusiasts closer to the magic behind the curtain, so to speak,” said James Capparelle, marketing communications manager, professional audio, and producer of the Pro Talk Series. “The collection of these outstanding portraits and the expertise of the audio professionals interviewed is a unique and valuable resource of information.”

The site provides brief introductions to each individual, allowing visitors to browse a broad range of professional disciplines and subject matters before going in-depth with each expert in their video interviews.

For example, the highly successful broadcast music mixer, Randy Faustino, expressed his passion for music: “I don’t know anything other than sound; it’s all I’ve ever been in love with… It’s in my blood, it’s in my heart, it’s in my soul.”

Leslie Ann Jones, director of Music Recording & Scoring at Skywalker Sound, shared her number one tip: “For younger people wanting a career in this business, I think that’s the best advice I can give: Spend time just listening to music… really listen to what someone’s trying to do, even if it’s the kind of music you could never see yourself doing because you can always learn something from it.”
