At the Tonmeistertagung on November 8, 2023, 12.30–5 p.m. / Düsseldorf
Live Mixing Workshop 2023
The young person’s guide to sound reinforcement.

You. There. Live.

Theory is good. Practice is better.

We want to answer typical questions for and with you, which arise in virtually every live sound situation:

What do I need to bear in mind when planning and commissioning a system? ... How loud is “loud”? ... Radio links – what is the right way to approach them? ... How does the choice and positioning of microphones affect the sound of instruments? ... How does the direct sound from instruments and their amplifiers affect the FOH sound? ... How do the monitor wedges affect the FOH sound? ... How do professionals prepare for FOH and monitoring jobs? ... What does a professional sound check involve? ... How do I best use bus processing and effects?

And not least:

Am I able to watch it all?

You can even listen to it all!

Observe professionals with many years of touring experience (Markus Eichhofer, Oli Voges and Nils Uhthoff) as they explain live what they are doing. Hear the results for yourself. Take a look over their shoulders. Stand next to the musicians on-stage and share their acoustic experience. Conduct experiments that are not possible during a normal gig.
