New Sound Summit: Atlanta event announced

DPA Microphones, Lectrosonics and Sound Devices are collaborating to present Sound Summit Atlanta, an ‘informal industry thought leadership and mixing discussion featuring best practices for the audio community’.

The third in a series of regional events throughout the U.S., Sound Summit Atlanta will feature a combination of short informative presentations, networking and Q&A opportunities, as well as the help of local sound mixers Whit Norris and Chris Durfy,

DPA’s global sales manager Bo Brinck will discuss polar patterns, frequency response and optimum placement for lavalier and shotgun microphones. Brinck will use his company’s d:screet 4061 and 4071 Miniature Microphones and d:dicate 4017B Shotgun Microphone to highlight these topics.

“I am looking forward to meeting the area’s sound mixers and other audio professionals who are eager to learn about all of the brands’ new technologies and updated methods with which to improve their sound,” commented Brinck. “With the event taking place right at the IATSE, we’re sure to have a very productive and interesting event.”

Karl Winkler, Lectrosonics’ vice president of sales/service, will use his brand’s L Series units, SSM “Super Slight” micro transmitter and SR Series receivers with Sound Devices’ SuperSlot compatibility to explain gain structure, antenna optimisation and RF frequency coordination.

“We’re extremely excited to continue the Sound Summit series with our latest event in Atlanta,” Winkler remarked. “It will be great to be able to share ideas with professionals in the local community while also learning from them. We anticipate the Atlanta event to be very valuable and look forward to hosting future events in other large metropolitan areas in the coming year.”

Jon Tatooles, co-founder and chief business development officer of Sound Devices will be on hand to discuss multi-track audio recording, timecode synchronisation and file management for today’s location sound mixer. He will demo Sound Devices’ 688 Field Production Mixer with SL-6 SuperSlot accessory, as well as the rackmount 970 64-Track Dante and MADI Audio Recorder for his presentation.

“The Sound Summits have proven very successful in reaching audio professionals in each city,” commented Tatooles. “I look forward to visiting the team at the local IATSE and speaking with Atlanta’s sound mixers regarding the unique needs associated with working in the region. It’s certain to be both fun and informative for everyone.”

Sound Summit Atlanta is taking place on Sunday, 4 October, 2015 from 3pm to 8pm at the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) Local 479 Headquarters in Atlanta.
