imgAlexandria, VA (January 17, 2013)—Harman’s Soudcraft will hold two sessions of its ‘Mixing with Professionals’ (MwP) series in Alexandria, VA, on February 6, offering formal training on the Soundcraft Vi Series consoles. The sessions will be held at the headquarters of A/V rental and staging company Audio Visual Actions, Inc. (AVA).

James Lawrenson, front of house engineer for Foster the People, will host the sessions. He will discuss his experiences working with Soundcraft equipment, specifically the Vi Series. Participants will be given a USB stick during the session so they can save their settings and take them on the road for their next gig, or continue working on their settings using the Soundcraft Virtual Vi offline editor, which is available free on the Soundcraft website.

“The sessions in Portland were hugely successful and it was definitely worthwhile to share my experiences of using Soundcraft consoles in my work with Foster the People,” Lawrenson said. “I believe there is no better way to learn technology than through hands-on training with professionals who are out there in the field, working with the technology every day.”

Both sessions will take place on February 6 at AVA at 5641-C General Washington Drive, Alexandria, VA 22312. Two time slots will be available from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and from 2:00 to 5:00 pm. The course is free to attend but registration is required and space is limited. Details are available at and participants can register via e-mail at
