Sound Workshop - Line Arrays, Subwoofer Techniques, and Advanced Filters
This three-day workshop will cover topics such as line arrays, all pass filters, and various subwoofer techniques.
What does the program offer?
Level two of this two-level workshop (see: Calibration & Design Techniques) provides participants insight into designing and aligning line arrays and subwoofers. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from faculty Merlijn Van Veen, one of the few people in the world who specializes in this area. This is a rare opportunity to attend a workshop given by Merlijn in North America.
This workshop focuses on the “power tools” such as line arrays and advanced subwoofer techniques i.e. cardioid configurations and subwoofer arrays. Advanced signal processing such as beam-steering with all-pass filters and more will be explored to put the proverbial “icing on the cake.”
