Saturday, October 7, 6:45 pm — 10:00 pm


Ron Streicher, Pacific Audio-Visual Enterprises - Pasadena, CA USA

The tutorial will center on the setup and recording of Graham Blyth's Organ Concert at Trinity Episcopal Church. This will be a "hands-on" session, with direct involvement of any and all who attend. Participants should come prepared to work. We will do everything required to setup and record this concert, from unloading the van of equipment through to reloading following the concert. All aspects of this process will be thoroughly discussed while we are working:
- Microphone selection and placement
- Microphone stand security and safety
- Cable routing and taping for safety
- Equipment configuration: the recording chain
- Choice of recording formats for stereo and surround
- ProTools session setup for stereo and surround
- Multitrack (DA78HR) equipment setup
-The "on-location monitoring dilemma" (i.e. headphones or loudspeakers)
- Techniques for logging the session (i.e. the "paperwork")
- Striking the session: cable coiling the RIGHT WAY

Please note: this tutorial will be in two parts:  2:30-5:30 p.m. for load-in, setup, and soundcheck;  and 6:45-10:00 p.m. for concert and load-out. It is necessary to register for the tutorial at at the Special Events Registration Desk, where you will be provided with the address and a map to the Church and the parking available in the vicinity of the Church, as well as the full, detailed schedule for the day's proceedings.
