Targeted at music production students, hobbyists and professionals, 'Mic to Monitor' aims to dispel the many myths surrounding the recording process. The events answer those all-important questions such as:
"What makes great gear great?"
"What does it take to become a successful and in demand audio engineer?"
"How do recording professionals tackle different aspects of their productions?"
"How is a hit sound achieved?"
Each seminar features presentations from recording professionals who will answer audience questions on recording techniques. There will also be the opportunity to demo and win recording equipment.
Graham Boswell, Sales Director of Prism Sound, says: "We introduced Mic to Monitor seminars as a vehicle for recording professionals to share their knowledge and experience with the next generation of audio engineers. The music recording industry is constantly evolving and there are always new tricks and techniques to be learned, even by people who are already making a successful living in this field. We are delighted that Mic to Monitor has become such a successful brand and this latest tour will bring the event to an even wider audience across two continents."
'Mic to Monitor' 2015 kicks off in the USA with the first event taking place on September 12th at Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana, in conjunction with the AES which is supporting it as part of the AES Student Summit. The tour then moves to Chicago, Illinois on September 14th, Detroit, Michigan on September 15th and Cleveland, Ohio on September 16th.
Guest speakers already confirmed for the USA dates include Edward J "UK" Nixon of the Grammy Award winning J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League. Nixon will give an insight into his career trajectory and demonstrate his approach to the workflow, mixing style and processes.
There will also be presentations from Prism Sound's Graham Boswell and from representatives from pro audio brands Audio Technica and PMC Speakers, which are supporting the US dates.
