SynAudCon Rolls Out New Workstations For Sound Reinforcement For Technicians Training

Greenville, IN – March, 2013 – SynAudCon is pleased to announce new workstations for the “Sound Reinforcement For Technicians” seminar.

New IPod-based Instrumentation Workstations

The 3-day multimedia seminar has upgraded the workstations to include an iPod TouchTM controlling an audio instrumentation interface.

Via a custom signal distribution system, attendees are able to measure

  • voltage,
  • impedance,
  • polarity,
  • SPL and

with the new equipment. The course instructs attendees on what these measurements mean and how to use them to ensure that the system is performing optimally.

“With the advances of technology, it is now possible to get professional and reliable readings using instrumentation that is not that expensive and can almost fit in your pocket,” explains Pat Brown, SynAudCon president. “With that type of accessibility it is important that the user understand how to interpret the information and adjust the system accordingly. That is what we cover during the “hands on” portion of the seminar.”

The new workstations feature an iPod TouchTM running a professional audio test and measurement app controlling an audio interface for iOS that includes a phantom powered mic input, balanced line input and output, and internal battery. A measurement microphone completes the package.

The Sound Reinforcement For Technicians seminar walks attendees through the process of troubleshooting a sound reinforcement system. The extensive training covers a number of topics including system gain structure, grounding and shielding, amplifier selection and system tuning.

There are currently three seminars on the schedule for 2013.

  • Toronto ON on April 8-10,
  • Infocomm at Orlando FL on June 9-11
  • Burbank CA on Oct. 28-30.

Registration is available online at under “In-Person Training.”
