South African distributor and systems integrator, Prosound, has hosted its Sound School events since 2010, offering those who work with sound systems as part of a wider role, such as a volunteer at a house of worship, with the basic skills they need. For the most recent edition of Sound School, held at the newly renovated Acts Christian Church in Midrand, Prosound chose to design a course specifically for the house of worship market.
Pastor Peter De Fin opened the doors of Acts to host the 3-day class, which provided attendees with an overview of audio principles via both theory and practical lessons. As part of its recent upgrades, Acts Christian Church was equipped with a Midas Pro X audio console and a Meyer Sound line array system, provided by Prosound.
The final day of the training was entirely practical, dedicated to setting up for a live band performance with a PA system, including cabling, microphone placement and monitor mixing. The syllabus was put together by Prosound technical director and Naledi Award-winning sound designer, Mark Malherbe, and presented by Lee Brune.
