Powersoft is providing training for users of its amplification technology with a series of free webinars from live sound guru Dave Rat (pictured) and industry veteran Steven Kemland.
The series will kick off on 8 November at 3pm with a session hosted in English by Kemland, who is an industry veteran specialising in theme parks, theatres, and corporate venues. He will examine Belgium-based FACE’s recent Plopsaqua Park installation project.
Joined by the water park’s technical director, Kemland (pictured) will highlight the challenges presented by the site’s complex layout and how he and his team were able to improve upon the limitations of its previous sound system, with a new Powersoft-driven installation. He will also discuss power saving techniques with Powersoft amplifiers, the benefits of across-the-board access to the Armonía DSP platform, and possible future integration of the operator view and remote operator view within Armoniá.
The next webinar will be held on 10 November at 3pm with Rat of Rat Sound, who has worked with artists including Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine and Blink 182. Rat will discuss his work on the 2016 Red Hot Chili Peppers world tour and how he was able to maximise the potential of his Powersoft amplifiers to deliver a big sound to massive crowds for one of the world’s biggest rock bands.
He will also discuss his Rat Sound Superwedge, a new monitor wedge used on the tour and specifically designed by Rat to provide monitor flexibility, by taking advantage of the capabilities of the Powersoft X4 amplifier.
In addition, the webinars will help industry players solve common issues either in fixed and live applications, and will include a fully produced video with the hosts explaining their use of the technology, followed by a live Q&A session where they will answer attendees’ questions. Webinars will be recorded and attendees can receive all materials after.
Francesco Fanicchi, Powersoft’s brand and communication director, says: “We are always looking for opportunities to provide our users with information and insights that can help them take full advantage of the incredible capabilities of our products. Many of the worlds top audio gurus utilise Powersoft amplifiers because of their technical superiority, so it is our pleasure to harness their expertise for these webinars.”
