Mixer and hand 600This multi-tiered workshop will teach how to set up a sound system, and how to use it—both as a soundboard operator and as a performer. You will set up the Golden Link sound system seen at Member Concerts, and have the opportunity to run the board and to perform, so bring your instrument and a song.

Set-up will include discussion of cable types, how to connect and where to place main and monitor speakers, how to connect the board to mics and speakers, adjusting faders on the board, how to avoid feedback, and adjusting the board to optimize sound.

For the performer we will discuss types of mics, directionality of mics, DI boxes for instruments with pickups, positioning yourself in front of mics, and how to talk to the soundboard operator.

This workshop has been very popular in the past and is limited to 15 people, so be sure to register (online only) by Sunday, November 10th.  For questions, contact our Education Coordinator.
