    Allen & Heath Academy Now in Session


    Nationwide training and certification program offers intensive audio training classes

    Introduced in February with its first classes in Van Nuys, California, Allen & Heath Academy offers attendees formal training spreading across a broad range of Allen & Heath products as well as live sound practices in general. Presented by Allen & Heath USA in cooperation with its regional network of independent sales representatives all across the country, the workshops are based around in-person academy training as well as online testing, all of which lead to official certification and AVIXA CTS RUs.

    We’ve intentionally given this program some real depth in terms of its size, scope, and content,  Allen & Heath USA Marketing Manager Jeff Hawley said. “It’s all part of our company efforts to advance the entire industry’s knowledge base not only on dLive and our other trendsetting products, but on new ways of thinking about workflow and networked systems in general.”

    Skilled audio professionals and legendary touring sound veterans are leading dozens of academy sessions that have already attracted hundreds of attendees this season. Notable among the group is featured presenter Michael Bangs, whose 20+ year career includes experiences as a monitor engineer and production manager for A-list acts including Aerosmith, Eric Clapton, Katy Perry, Tom Petty, Kid Rock, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. An early advocate of live digital mixing, Bangs assisted a multitude of others in making the transition from analog in the early 2000s. A pioneer in surfaceless mixing that naturally gravitated to Allen & Heath, he built a close relationship with the manufacturer and ultimately joined the company to provide support to those on the road using dLive mixing systems.


    Being part of the Allen & Heath Academy offers me the unique opportunity to meet and work with some of the brightest engineers in our industry,” Bangs said, commenting upon his role within the training initiative. “We have a lot to offer everyone with these classes beyond simple certification—this is a chance for anyone who’s serious about their work and career to truly expand their skills, learn new techniques, and strike a creative spark within themselves and among their peers.

    Beyond touring FOH and monitor engineers, consultants, integrators, house of worship production team members, and those within the rental community, all stand to gain by enrolling for academy sessions. Most sessions are free to attend. To obtain Allen & Heath Academy dates and locations as well as all other

      Newport News, VA—Like many houses of worship, the Calvary Chapel didn't start out as a large congregation, it worked its way into becoming one. Having revitalized a site that was once a shopping center, today the church has seating for 1400 in its main sanctuary, a 600-capacity fellowship hall, and a vibrant youth ministry. Allen & Heath components including a dLive C3500, multiple SQ-5, and ME-1 mixing systems spread out across the entire campus, fulfilling the needs of audio events large and small.
      “By design, Allen & Heath mixing systems are truly multifaceted within this application,” explains Bart Cardea of Providential Integration Concepts, the Chesapeake, Virginia-based firm tasked with developing the church’s audio blueprint. “Throughout the construction phases of its campus, the church held to a conviction that high-quality audio was something that should serve every worship space, not just the main sanctuary. When it came to the controlling end of that equation, high channel count flexibility was a very real necessity, not just an abstract concept.”

      With installation of the Providential Integration Concepts design managed by Matt Stairs of Sunset Sound of Virginia Beach, audio signals route via Dante throughout the plan. The church’s dLive C3500 control surface stands at front of house in the sanctuary, joined by a DM64 MixRack at the stage, which often hosts major faith-based musicians from around the country. The first of three SQ-5 mixers on-campus handles the sanctuary monitor mix, while the second and third are respectively deployed in the fellowship hall and youth room. A total of eight ME-1 personal mixers reside on the sanctuary stage, used for both regular services and visiting performers.
      “If anything,” says Calvary Chapel technical director Tony Lewis, “Allen & Heath has allowed us to expand at our own pace, growing into a future where we always can accommodate a larger sonic vision. From the speed of our workflow to our ability to configure these systems in a fashion that suits the working style of any of our own staff members and visiting engineers, there isn’t seemingly anything within our audio chain that hasn’t improved. We have pristine 96kHz performance. Countless compliments come our way from guest artists and engineers on the lack of coloration, and how easy it is to dial-in their sound to levels they usually only obtain in a studio setting.”

      Jag har fått tag på en smått legendarisk mixer som säkert många av er här känner igen som heter Sat sam 82 som byggdes för Sveriges radio.
      Mixern saknar direct out på varje kanal, men det går att fixa via utgångarna på stiften bak på mixern.
      Här någon bilder eller koppling schema på detta? Vilka stift skall användas? Har för mig att jag sett att av er här gjort detta. Helst vill jag ha kopplat så att jag kan använda eq n vid inspelning. Alla tips mottages tacksamt.
      Mvh Daniel

      Jag vill köpa ett mixerbord som jag kommer att ha till att styra runt ljud mellan dator och ljudsystem, kunna kontrollera mikrofon, ljud till/från chattprogram. Chatt samtidigt som ljud från t.ex. spel osv. Jag kommer även att använda det till att köra karaoke genom, spela in lite instrument och sång.
      Några saker jag gärna vill ska finnas är effekter, gärna kompressor på några ingångar, någon aux-kanal (jag vill bland annat kunna koppla en mix minus, men det går kanske alltid att göra genom FX-aux:en? Det vore även kul att kunna styra runt kanalerna med aux:en för andra ändamål också). Jag har kikat på om det finns Insert på mixern, men det är inte säkert att jag  kommer att avända ett sådant.
      Jag har kollat lite på följande mixerbord:
      Alesis Multimix 8 USB FX
      Yamaha MG10XU
      Mackie PROFX8v2
      Allen Heath ZEDi-10
      Behringer Xenyx QX1204USB
      De skiljer lite i pris, men ligger på skapligt jämn nivå.
      På Behringern verkar man få mest funktioner för pengarna. Många verkar gilla den (och märket över huvud taget), andra tycker att märket håller sämre kvalitet. Denna mixer verkar sakna Insert. Ett problem som verkar finnas på deras mixar är att man inte kan hämta ljud via USB och sedan skicka tillbaka samma ljud genom USB igen (utgången genom USB kan inte skicka vidare kanalen USB/2-track. Alla andra kanaler förutom denna fungerar). Vet ni om någon av de andra mixarna har samma problem?
      Allen Heath-mixern verkar ha några fina funktioner som t.ex att den kan skicka fler kanaler genom USB än vad de andra mixarna klarar. Märket verkar ha ett gott rykte. Däremot verkar det finnas ett problem med brus om man använder en mikrofon som kräver Phantom-spänning. 
      Yamaha-mixern verkar även den ha ett gott rykte. Den har dock bara AUX efter effekterna, och den saknar inserts. Det verkar inte gå styra fullt ut vad man vill höra i sina hörlurar som på några av de andra mixarna.
      Mackie-mixern verkar ha ett blandat rykte (svaga pre-amps?) men överlag gott. Den saknar dock kompressor.
      Alesis-mixern saknar kompressor.
      Så, vad har ni för egna erfarenheter och kunskaper om dessa mixar? Vad ska jag köpa?
      Jag tar gärna emot tips om andra  mixar, allmänna råd och synpunkter. =)
