South Africa:

Johannesburg-based distributor Stage Audio Works (SAW) has announced its commitment to industry training as a major priority of the company. As a result of this, SAW has planned a number of dedicated workshops for a variety of the brands it represents covering the major industry disciplines.

The first element in the new initiative is a live mixing workshop taking place at the Mosaiek Teatro-Roodeport on September 11th and 12th. The workshop will combine equipment from Sennheiser, Yamaha and d&b audiotechnik to provide a comprehensive workshop covering the entire signal chain. In addition, presentations from freelance engineer Oliver Voges and d&b audiotechnik’s Janko Ramuscak promise to offer a brand-neutral approach to various techniques and methods.

‘This is a unique opportunity for sound engineers to participate in a practical workshop in a live environment and learn how to overcome specific audio challenges in a hands-on manner while being mentored by some of the leading minds in the global audio industry,’ stated Shaun Xavier, marketing manager at Stage Audio Works. ‘With the combined knowledge of the companies and individuals involved, this workshop promises to be the most comprehensive live mixing workshop South Africa has ever seen. Users can expect to leave this event with new skills that they can apply regardless of the environment they face on a regular basis.’

Following the live mixing workshop, SAW is hosting an open day at its Johannesburg office on September 18th, dedicated to dBTechnologies’ VIO Series concert system. ‘The VIO series has been increasing in popularity amongst local staging firms due to the value it has been shown to deliver,’ added Xavier. ‘Due to this, we felt it was important to host this session to ensure that everyone can get the best out of these systems and hear exactly why they have become such a common site on gigs in the region.’

As part of the education focus, the company is holding sessions to assist users at all stages of their career. This has seen a workshop covering an introduction to the d&b audiotechnik workflow hosted specifically for students at The Academy of Sound Engineering, as well as the launch of Tech Tuesdays, a free monthly workshop for house of worship technicians.

‘The pace of change for technology in this industry means that you can never sit still,’ concluded Xavier. ‘We understand that people have to stay up-to-date if they want to deliver the best service to their clients, audience or congregation and we are determined to help people at every stage of their career learn about the latest technology and new solutions to age-old problems. The sessions we have planned for the coming months will be valuable for anyone working in the rental staging industry.’
