Potters Bar, UK (August 18, 2009)–Harman has recently launched a range of online facilities and social networking sites related to its two console companies.
The new Studer website features white papers on mixing in surround, virtual surround panning, and how to measure the true quality of sound. A series of tutorial videos can be downloaded explaining and demonstrating operational philosophies of the Vista digital console range. With Studer’s product range now spanning more audio markets, the site also features application-specific areas for broadcast, live sound, theatre, performing arts centers and Houses of Worship, with dedicated news sections and product recommendations.
Soundcraft’s new site features a selection of tutorials including the Guide to Mixing available in download booklet form as well as video streams, while white papers provide help for all levels of user; beginners looking to do their first gig on their first mixer, right up to the top pro’s operating tours, shows and studios with the most advanced digital systems. Topics start with how to cable up your mixer, through to audio balancing, matrixes, LCR panning and VCA grouping.
The Video Vault contains demonstrations ranging from the Analog MFX family right up to the Si and Vi Series digital, large-format consoles.
To help users share information and pick up tips of the trade from one another, Soundcraft has just launched a page on Facebook at www.facebook.com/soundcraft, where fans can also pick up latest news, pictures and information, and also upload their own Soundcraft-related news and photographs. This supplements the existing YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/Soundcraftuk, which already hosts all the chapters of the Soundcraft Guide to Mixing. A new MySpace site, www.myspace.com/soundcraftmixers, is also available.
