Prism Sound’s 2016 Mic to Monitor Tour Heads to BPM PRO
Over the course of two days, there will be inspirational panel discussions, informative seminars and opportunities to demo high end equipment.
Cambridge, UK. August 31st 2016: Mic to Monitor, Prism Sound’s popular educational seminar tour, is heading to BPM PRO in September for a special two-day schedule of music production seminars, panels and guest speakers.
Targeted at music production students, hobbyists and professionals, Mic to Monitor aims to dispel the many myths surrounding the recording process. The events answer those all-important questions such as what makes great gear great, what does it take to become a successful and in demand audio engineer, how do recording professionals tackle different aspects of their productions and how is a hit sound achieved?
Graham Boswell, Sales Director of Prism Sound, says: "Mic to Monitor has become an incredibly successful brand and we are delighted to be part of BPM PRO in 2016. No matter where you are in the world, there are always new recording tricks and techniques to be learned, even by people who are already making a successful living in this field. That’s what Mic to Monitor sets out to achieve – to impart knowledge by providing a vehicle for recording professionals to share their experience with the next generation of audio engineers."
BPM PRO takes place at the Genting Arena, NEC, Birmingham, on Sunday 11th September and Monday 12th September, 2016.
