An academy with a mission to create world class Sound Engineering professionals, who provide the perfect sound in sound studios, radio or film, we don’t abstain from providing maximum hands-on experience to students.

The training methodology of the academy is like what the students are learning inside a class room session must be adequately clubbed with ample practical sessions, providing them to have an in depth knowledge about the topic.

The second semester of our flagship course, 1 year Diploma in Sound Engineering and Sound Recording is incorporated with 80% practicals and 20% theory.

Last week the students who are specializing in Live Sound Reinforcement got the opportunity to test their knowledge by involving themselves in a Live Musical Concert held in an Engineering College in Trivandrum.

“If the instruments are harmoniously matched in a concert, the listening experience is a pleasure. If not, the listener is annoying.”

To prevent this anonymity from happening during the show and during the career life of students, they have been assigned with various tasks to work behind the scenes during the live music concert.

According to our CEO, “We do not only train in our own sound studios and practice rooms, but also travel with our students to the events with our line-up of Audio Experiments, which in-turn help the students to understand what all things are actually happening during a live show from planning, installation, how to perfectly handle a show and how to wind up the show”.

Students were quite impressed and were excited as they have become a part of the audio installation of a big event.

Students expressed their feeling that, that it was an awesome experience for them as it provided the opportunity to work with the metal music band of Jhanu (Kabali Fame) along with other prominent ones.

One of the reasons why we are rated as the top institute in India is the expert sessions conducted in the academy as well as the project guides associated with us.

Second semester of our diploma course comprises various project activities where the students will get hands-on experience regarding what they learned.

The different projects done by the students in the semester is a actually learning process to fathom out the reasons behind those real world audio issues and tackle it effectively in the shortest span of time.

Learning sophisticated technologies, latest software and equipment the project works assists the students to educate themselves those out of the syllabus topics and practice it accordingly.

In the previous post we have mentioned that an expert session is being organized in the academy to train students for their Live Sound Project.

rahul-samuel-session-day2Continuing it on the second day, the session has covered topics which included :
Sub-woofers, Amplifiers, Venue – Data collection, Venue Recce (Practical), Compiling Data, Stage Design and Planning, Making and Reading tech riders, Electrical Power, Mixing Console

Afternoon session was the session for activities and practicals based on what the students have grasped during the theoretical session in the morning.

Trainer has demonstrated various techniques while installing sub-woofers like where it has to be placed during a live show, how to setup sub-woofers for quality sound, how much should be the distance between 2 sub-woofers etc.

As part of the demonstration, 2 cardioid subwoofers has been hand-picked from our range of training equipment.
