Prism Sound is extending the reach of its Mic to Monitor educational seminars by holding three of its forthcoming events in conjunction with the Abbey Road Institute, which now has training centres in Paris, Melbourne, Berlin and London.
The 2016 Mic to Monitor tour kicked off on April 11 at the new Abbey Road Institute in Berlin, before moving to Los Angeles, CA, for its second event on April 27. It will ultimately take in over 10 cities around the world, including Paris in June and Amsterdam in October, where it will be held at Abbey Road Institute’s sixth centre, which is due to open later this year.
Targeted at music production students, hobbyists and professionals, Mic to Monitor aims to dispel the many myths surrounding the recording process. The events answer questions such as:
• What makes great gear great?
• What does it take to become a successful and in demand audio engineer?
• How do recording professionals tackle different aspects of their productions?
• How is a hit sound achieved?
Each seminar features presentations from recording professionals who will answer audience questions on recording techniques. Among those scheduled to take part are Tomato Sound Factory owner and producer Frederic Maury, who will speak at the event in Paris in June, and Talvin Singh OBE who will address audiences in London in December. There will also be presentations from the pro audio equipment manufacturers that are supporting the events in each territory, and an opportunity to demo and win recording equipment.

Graham Boswell, Sales Director of Prism Sound, says, "Mic to Monitor has become an incredibly successful brand and we are delighted to be partnering with another internationally acclaimed brand—the Abbey Road Institute—for at least three of this year’s seminars. No matter where you are in the world, there are always new recording tricks and techniques to be learned, even by people who are already making a successful living in this field. That’s what Mic to Monitor sets out to achieve—to impart knowledge by providing a vehicle for recording professionals to share their experience with the next generation of audio engineers."
Rudi Grieme, CEO Abbey Road Institute, adds, "It’s great to see Prism Sound organizing this tour again. As a music production educator we encourage events like these that provide a platform to sound professionals who are willing to share their experiences and knowledge with other enthusiasts. We are very pleased to host the Mic to Monitor events at our Abbey Road Institute locations because of the high quality and innovation that Prism Sound stands for and the variety of topics and guest speakers that highlight the music production process."
