SynAudCon Ice Cream Social Was a Big Hit

“Standing room only” is how I would describe the SynAudCon Ice Cream social. Pat and I were so grateful to see such a nice response.

We would like to thank everyone for attending. It was a very special evening.

I received this thank you note from Phil Cartier. I think he summed the evening up quite nicely.

“Thank you so much for a very enjoyable evening at InfoComm. As always, the conversation was stimulating and seeing the old friends and the new list-serve posters was great fun.”

I would like to share some photos that were taken at the event.

Audio Veterans Shared at a SynAudCon Seminar

On March 9-11, 2015, forty-two AV practitioners attended the Sound System Design seminar in Atlanta, GA. The first day of the seminar was spent on measuring and interpreting the room impulse response – RIR. Day 2 is spent on electro-acoustics, primarily loudspeaker directivity and coverage, along with amplifier-sizing. Day 3 “puts it all together” and demonstrates the efficient use of computer modeling for designing systems with high speech intelligibility and music clarity.

IMG_0016Atlanta is city filled with audio veterans. On the first night of the seminar, SynAudCon provided dinner for the seminar attendees and invited several of the local audio giants to share with the group. The guests included Dr. Eugene Patronis, Bill Thrasher Sr., Wayne Lee, Chris Hamlin, and several from Danley Sound Labs. Read more »

SynAudCon Presents in Shenzhen China

System tuning and equalization in a logical, accurate and repeatable process…

AS THE NAME IMPLIES, “OptEQ”is an optimized sound system tuning process developed by SynAudCon (Synergetic Audio Concepts), and it was presented to an audience of more than 100 consultants, contractors and end users over the course of two days in early January at the American Airlines Training Center in Ft. Worth. I was fortunate to be one of those attendees.

As usual, the workshop was brilliantly prepared, hosted, and presented. Pat and Brenda Brown of SynAudCon are simply the best in the pro audio business at delivering exceptional education and training in both audio theory and practical application. The course manual, loaded with relevant information,analogies, and useful graphics, is worth the cost of the workshop alone. Read more »

Seminar Report: SynAudCon’s Making Wireless Work Training Event

by Curt Taipale, Taipale Media

Curt Taipale, Taipale Media

I’ve just returned from attending the latest special topic seminar hosted by Pat & Brenda Brown from SynAudCon called “Making Wireless Work”, and wanted to share my experiences with you.

What an honor it was to sit under the teaching of industry veterans James Stoffo, Tim Vear and Karl Winkler. In just those two days I was both comforted to learn that much of what I thought I knew on the topic of wireless audio systems was in fact correct, and oddly encouraged to discover just how many things I didn’t know about this topic.

If you’re like me, you have invested a significant part of your career working with wireless microphones and IEM systems. The tendency is to design such systems on autopilot, doing it a certain way because it worked the last time, but never truly understanding why it worked. Read more »

A couple of years ago at InfoComm, Pete Milbery and Mark Boyadjian told us that their new Charlotte headquarters had a training center and invited SynAudCon to use it.  This year when we decided to go to Charlotte for a seminar, Neutrik was on the top of the list.

It was a wonderful experience.  Neutrik USA headquarters is a beautiful facility with a great training center.  They welcomed us and the attendees graciously and Neutrik staff was extremely helpful.  We even had a visit from Werner Bachmann, Neutrik’s CEO, who was visiting from Neutrik AG in Liechtenstein.

A special thank you to Neutrik USA. Their warm welcome and beautiful facility provided an excellent atmosphere for learning and synergy.  I would also like to thank the attendees for their synergetic spirit.  It was a very enjoyable week for all of us.

SynAudCon Stays Ahead Of The Curve

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SynAudCon's New LogoGreenville, IN (September 2014) — SynAudCon, the industry-leading web-based and in-person training source for audio education, takes pride in staying ahead of the learning curve.

Since its creation by Don and Carolyn Davis in 1973, through the transition to current owners Pat and Brenda Brown in 1996 and the roll-out of the online courses in 2010, the organization has been a constant educational resource for the professional audio industry.

In keeping with their “one-step-ahead” philosophy, the Browns have changed their website URL to www.prosoundtraining.com, which has also been incorporated into the SynAudCon logo.

“We felt that prosoundtraining.com better describes what SynAudCon offers the industry,” explains Brenda Brown. “We want to make sure that when someone sees the SynAudCon logo, there is no question about what the company does.”
“Our goal is to reach those new to the industry as well as the veterans that are familiar with our work,” adds Brown.

SynAudCon’s web-based courses keep complex topics simple through continuous animations, demonstrations and analogies which help reduce the learning curve. The in-person training is an immersive 2-3 day experience that offers hands-on learning opportunities to participants.

For more information about SynAudCon training opportunities visit the website at www.prosoundtraining.com.
