Whether you are new to live sound or if you have been doing it for decades, it’s important to keep learning. Technology is always changing and we should keep up with it.
If you are a busy audio technician jumping from gig to gig, sometimes it’s hard to find the time to catch your breath! Maybe you are just starting out in the industry and picking up a little from the veterans on each gig but feel like you should be learning more than you are.
Busy schedules and distractions keep us from making the time to learn and stay up to date.
Do you ever feel like you are getting left behind? I mean, not all of us can fly around the country attending trade shows and manufacture training sessions.
We’d like to tell you about the “Live Sound Summit”, happening ONLINE Sunday and Monday, June 2nd/3rd, hosted by live sound engineer, author, teacher, and coach Nathan Lively.
Nathan Lively is the host of the Sound Design Live podcast where he interviews industry experts about all things live sound.
Once a year he brings together the best of the best to offer a 2-day online (watch from anywhere) summit with 17 different presenters over 2 days (16 hours) for the Live Sound Summit.
Join live from your living room, kitchen, or favorite coffee shop on June 2nd and 3rd. Interact with other attendees, get your questions answered, and with the optional All Access Pass, watch the presentations over and over, or watch them later if you can’t make it live. Plus with the All Access Pass not only can you watch the session later, you get all the slides and handouts.
