d&b audiotechnik are offering a seminar on Electroacoustics
This seminar is free of charge.
The seminar provides a comprehensive guide to the principles of acoustics. How does sound propagate? How do sound waves combine? To mention a couple of the important questions that will be answered during this session in an informative and entertaining way. Attendees are asked to participate during the day to ensure that no one is left behind.
The Electroacoustics seminar is suitable for all levels of experience and the seminar format can be flexible and audience led.
To gain further understanding of the principles of electroacoustics for sound system design and engineering. Discover how loudspeakers interact with their environment and how to achieve intelligible sound to every listener.
Novices and students will gain new skills whilst those with more experience will enjoy refreshing their knowledge.
The focus of the day is on achieving intelligibility; if you’re passionate about sound, then you want to get clear, intelligible sound to every seat in the house. Most sound engineers have a good knowledge of the electronic signal path, but are less sure of the acoustic signal path between the loudspeaker and the listener’s ears.
Along the way, we will take in all the acoustics and physics that you will need. We avoid the ‘chalk and talk’ approach; listening, practical experiments and reasoned discussion take the place of the blackboard as much as possible.
The workshop or seminar content is conveyed in a format that encourages the participants to play an active role, for example exchanging experiences or using practical examples.
Free of charge.
Relevant documentation such as Technical Information and System Brochures will be available to take away.
Every participant is presented with a certificate at the end of the event in which they have taken part.
From 10:30 to 17:30.

In this workshop the participants are familiarized with the basics of acoustics, loudspeaker characteristics and design. The E-Series, T-Series, and Q-Series products are introduced, as are the d&b amplifiers, both in theory and with listening sessions.
No previous experience with d&b products is necessary.
During this session the participants are introduced with the basics of acoustics, loudspeaker characteristics and design. The E-Series, T-Series, and Q-Series products are introduced, as are the d&b amplifiers, both in theory and with listening sessions.
The day starts with an informal introduction that familiarizes everyone with the seminar presenter's and attendee's professional backgrounds.
This takes a brief look at various audio phenomena, the knowledge of which lets everybody understand acoustics and to better comprehend how loudspeakers behave. It is followed by familiarizing the group with some basic principles of loudspeaker design and the influence they have on the directivity and frequency response. This session does away with complicated math and physics and lets the participants experience a variety of phenomena through a number of acoustic experiments.
Having learned about the inner workings of acoustics and loudspeakers in general, a closer look is taken at the d&b approach to loudspeaker design, amplification and processing electronics. Starting with a bit of company history which is followed by an exploration of the System reality to discover why d&b does things the way d&b does them.
Introduction to the E-Series, T-Series and Q-Series
A look at the features and intended applications of the three lines of loudspeakers, their strengths and differences.
Hands on listening session
Most of the afternoon is dedicated to actually setting up different systems out of the three Series. Everybody can experience how the loudspeakers and amplifiers can be handled and, most importantly, how they sound.
From 9:30 to 17:30.
This workshop is a guide to the d&b Remote network. Beside all the functions inside a d&b amplifier to enable integration into all kinds of reinforcement systems, participants will learn what to consider to make up a useful remote network. Light will be shone on all aspects of a network design, starting at the hardware and ending at the individual user interface.
Participants should be experienced with the d&b sound system set up and management. The knowledge of Windows based computers and their usage is advantageous. Please bring your own laptop running WinXP (or higher) or Mac OS 10.x.
The participants should be able to set up a d&b Remote network with a meaningful user interface.
d&b amplifiers in the networkDetailed explanation of the control functionality of d&b's amplifiers.
d&b Remote network topologyNecessary hardware to set up a remote network. Description of the various network topologies and cable options.
d&b Remote network softwareInstalling and preparing the d&b R1 remote control software program on a personal computer. Practical session in programming a user interface with the R1 software.
d&b audiotechnik and the National Theatre are offering a seminar on Electroacoustics, in the Temporary Theatre (previously known as The Shed) at the NT.
ASD Members are receiving a two week headstart to register a place for this course, before it is offered to the general public. It will "sell out" fast. You have until November 16th... This seminar is free of charge, but is currently only open to ASD members.
The workshop or seminar content is conveyed in a format that encourages the participants to play an active role, for example exchanging experiences or using practical exampless.
Please note, this course is organised and provided by d&b audiotechnik and the National Theatre. After the ASD headstart period it will be opened up to the general public.

This is a down to earth workshop about the principles of line arrays. The day demystifies the general knowledge of line arrays, bringing this technology into the right perspective and to the real world. Questions like why and when do I need to use a line array will be answered as well as the principles of designing loudspeaker setups utilizing the d&b ArrayCalc software.
Participants should be experienced in tackling sound problems and want to develop their knowledge of d&b systems with a special focus on the T-Series and V-Series line arrays. All participants should bring a laptop computer (WinXP or higher or MacOS X).
We introduce the participants to line array theory and the use of our ArrayCalc software that lets them plan line array setups as well as distributed subwoofer arrays. The participants will learn about T and V system specifics and will be instructed on how to use them safely for optimum results.
Line array theoryThis theoretical session explains the principles of line array systems and their behaviour in a refreshingly non-mathematical way. It strips away the 'mystery' that evolves around such systems and gives the participants a good understanding of the real-world workings instead.
ArrayCalcIn this session, we introduce the d&b ArrayCalc software that is used to design d&b line array systems and distributed subwoofer arrays. After a short explanation of the software, everybody will practice the array design process on their own computers.
T, V and sub array setup practice and listening sessionFollowing on from the line array theory session, participants will get the opportunity to listen and understand a number of different line array configurations.
We also demonstrate our directional system subwoofers on their own and within subwoofer arrays.
Please note, this course is organised and provided by d&b audiotechnik and the National Theatre.
