Stage Audio Works has made industry education a key priority with a variety of initiatives designed to enhance the knowledge base of industry professionals at every level of their career. This new focus will see dedicated workshops for a variety of brands covering some of the major disciplines that professionals need to be successful.

Yamaha and d&b audiotechnik workshop‘The pace of change for technology in this industry means that you can never sit still,’ says Stage Audio Works MD, Shaun 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 here to help them do just that.’

One of the first highlights for this initiative was a dedicated live mixing workshop at the Mosaiek Teatro-Roodeport, that presented, Yamaha and d&b audiotechnik technologies in a comprehensive workshop covering the whole signal chain. Presentations from freelance engineer Oliver Voges and d&b audiotechnik’s Janko Ramuscak offered 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,’ Xavier asserts. ‘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 this, Stage Audio Works will hosting an open day at its Johannesburg office in September to cover 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,’ Xavier explains. ‘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.’

Beyond professionals, Stage Audio Works is holding sessions to assist people 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 and the launch of Tech Tuesdays, a free monthly workshop for HOW technicians.

‘We are determined to help people at every stage of their career learn about the latest technology and new solutions to age-old problems,’ Xavier says. ‘The sessions we have planned for the coming months will be valuable for anyone working in the rental staging industry.’
