Module Details

  • 1. Introduction and Outline of the Course
    This module briefly goes over all the material that we'll learn in the Ultimate Live Sound School. We also take a broad overview of what a sound system is and all its pieces.
  • 2. Introduction to Sound Theory
    To form a basis to learn subsequent modules we discover exactly what sound is and how all the dBs and Hz work together. This kind of theory should normally be boring... but we make it fun :)
  • 3. The Equipment
    In this module we discuss how to design systems or be confident when speaking with outside designers. We look at every component of a sound system and understand how they work, what specs to look for and how to put it all together.
  • 4. Setting up the Stage
    The stage is where most of the action is. Learn how to use input boxes, DI boxes, monitor systems, balance vs unbalanced lines. We also look at microphone selection and placement. Even go through a complete demonstration of mic'ing a drum kit.
  • 5. Using a Mixing Console (part 1)
    Over an hour of discovering how to use ANY console on the planet. We start with an analog Mackie mixer to get our bearings and then progress to a typical digital mixer. This section deals with the overview of a mixer and the inputs.
  • 6. Using a Mixing Console (part 2)
    Continuing on from the last part, the section discusses aux sends, uses of effects, monitor mixes, sub-groups and advanced applications. Once you see both sections of this module you'll be able to stare down ANY mixer on the planet.

  • 10. Mixing (part 2)
    The mixing module continues with adding dynamic processors including compressors and gates as well as advanced EQ techniques. There's no other place to see EXACTLY how to EQ a kick drum... a vocal... a piano. MUST SEE module!
