The May MSP Audio Geeks meetup will be on Monday, May 20th from 7-9pm at HDMG, thanks to sound designer Ben O’Brien. Nathan Lively of Sound Design Live will be putting on a presentation about sound system tuning.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could see sound? But wait, we can, with an audio analyzer. Nathan will demo some basic sound system optimization processes using a two channel audio analyzer (like Smaart) and we’ll discuss what is and isn’t possible through measurement.

We are excited to announce that we have rescheduled the First Ave. behind-the-scenes tour, a joint event with the Minneapolis chapter of SoundGirls.Org, for Monday, June 20th at 3pm. Special thanks to Holly Ann Latcham, Hippo Campus PM/FOH engineer and instigator of the Minneapolis SoundGirls.Org chapter, for coordinating this event!

From the SoundGirls.Org website:
“SoundGirls.Org was formed in 2013 by veteran live sound engineers Karrie Keyes and Michelle Sabolchick Pettinato and operates under the Fiscal Sponsorship of The Northern California Women’s Music Festival, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Mission Statement: To inspire and empower the next generation of women in audio. Our mission is to create a supportive community for women in audio and music production, providing the tools, knowledge, and support to further their careers.”

Greg Huber, head tech of First Ave., will be showing us a behind-the-scenes tour of the live sound system. This tour is an educational outing for local new and old audio professionals alike to come in and see how things are run in a 1200 CAP venue. It will give many the chance to wrap their heads around the science behind setting up systems, the kind of power and processing it takes, the standard gear that is popular amongst many clubs of similar size, along with many other audio-related topics that we can nerd out about!

Please RSVP to mspaudiogeeks at gmail dot com if you are able to attend.
