New Blog Posts and Training Courseware

Training and Courseware
[est_time] Read

I’m excited to announce I’ll be starting a series of blog posts—that I hope will evolve into—virtual reality video/tutorial blogs and courseware for learners.

This post and other posts in the other blog categories coming soon are intended to help you the—technician, operator, musician, manager, and owner—to create the best outcome in how your live amplified performances sound.

The blogs are one part of a larger learning management system that is designed to give you an outcome from the training—you can decide on which training modules to select, based on the outcome that you want. The outcome that managers may want is—reduced incidence of feedback, or improve intelligibility, or reduced noise.

This blog is, not only, for the intended audience described above, it is also for you if you share similar; interests; passions; skills; beliefs and values .

I’m also publishing how the learning methods are applied, namely; cognitive; affective; and psychomotor learning. The learning strategies and your organisation’s mission and vision are the framework on which the instructional design follows. This ensures that the course is cognitively rich and outcomes are met.


I encourage interaction between us; ask questions, share your experiences, the more we network the more we learn; so please feel free to comment.

To whet your appetite here is a list of some of the training modules that are in the pipelines; Vote on a course!

Setting Gain Structure


The outcome of this training module: is to lower the noise or hiss that can be heard in the PA; improve sound feeds to cameras and recorders, eliminate distortion and improve intelligibility; and possibly reduce feedback from prone systems.

This involves setting the correct gain structure from the devices that are connected in the signal chain; from input source; to mixer; to media system; to amplifier and speaker.

 Basic Mixing Operation

D5desk4000The outcome of this training module: is to maintain the pristine signal and its tonal quality, level and transition, when the production or conference moves its focus back and forth from presenter to playback. The outcome would be clear intelligibility and consistent levels between all the speakers and playback media.

It involves the operator having the correct reaction to sensory input. The imbalance of level from one speaker to another. Applying appropriate compression and equalisation to the offending signals.

This training module has a component that trains the operators hearing to identify what noise is, where it originates from and suggestions to eliminate it.

To add color to the blog posts I’ll also be talking about technologies; stories; and future thoughts in the live performance production industry, something like—bone conduction transducers in headsets and how it could improve sound operator performance. How being liberated from ear covered headsets but still be able to hear cues could cure some of the problems sound operators face.
