|At prolight+sound show 2009, Frankfurt, Germany, Hall 4.1 C30, the microphone manufacturer Neumann will be offering a program of short seminars with expert moderators. The seminars, 40 in total, focusing on 10 different topics, will deal not only with general questions concerning the use of microphones in the studio and on stage but also with special topics such as the amplification of choirs, the creation of demo recordings, the use of digital microphones in home recording, voice training for various musical styles, optimized monitoring, and measures for improving room acoustics.
The workshops of Peter Weihe, well-known studio guitarist in Germany, promise to be particularly exciting. From his wealth of experience over the decades, Peter Weihe will provide practical tips for recording acoustic guitars and guitar amps.
Seminars will be held on all four days of the trade fair, from 9:45 am to 6:00 pm. Participation is free of charge, and no preregistration is required, however those who come early will get the best seats. Except 'Optimal studio monitoring - Do you hear what you get?' which will be held in English, all workshops will be held in German. Optionally, moderators of 'Vocal studio recording' and 'Turning a live recording into a demo' would be able to switch to English if required.
Wolfgang Fraissinet, President of Marketing/Sales at Neumann Berlin explains: “In addition to the established studio sector, stage applications now also play a significant role at Neumann. This is also reflected in the range of topics covered by our workshop program. Appropriately, at this year’s prolight+sound Neumann is presenting the KMS 104 plus, an enhanced stage microphone that is especially optimized to meet the requirements of rock and pop performances.”
