Hosted by Mark Johnson, Full Sail University’s Show Production Program Director, The Sound Summit Orlando will be held from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., with short informational presentations from each of the manufacturers from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., followed by food, refreshments and social/networking time. Representatives from all four manufacturers will be available throughout the event to discuss the best practices for utilizing all four brands during a production.
Gabriel Antonini, National Sales Support/Business Development Manager of DPA Microphones, Inc., will speak about polar patterns, frequency response, off axis linearity and best practices for placement of lavalier and shotgun microphones. To highlight these topics, Antonini will be using the company’s d:screet™ Miniature Microphones and d:dicate™ 4017B Shotgun Microphone. Alongside Antonini will be Christopher Spahr, VP of Sales & Marketing, Leonardo Romero, Sales Director, Latin America and James Capparelle, Marketing Manager, USA of DPA Microphones, Inc. “We can’t thank Full Sail enough for hosting this event,” says Capparelle. “Being a Full Sail alumni myself, I can’t think of a better platform for our fifth consecutive Sound Summit, and hope that the students who attend will take away as much as the industry professionals do.”
"The Sound Summit has proven to be an excellent event for all involved," says Karl Winkler, VP of Sales and Service at Lectrosonics. "At the events in Chicago, Atlanta and New York last year, we enjoyed sharing ideas and learning from our customers and the professional sound community in a relaxed setting. Now, with the addition of K-Tek we are adding even more exciting, professional solutions for production sound professionals. I'm very grateful to Mark Johnson and Full Sail University for offering to host the event."
On stage for Sound Devices, LLC, will be Jon Tatooles, Co-Founder and Chief Business Development Officer. Tatooles will discuss Sound Devices’ revolutionary MixAssist™ technology, which is now integrated into its latest 688 mixer/recorder. In addition, Tatooles will also explain the workflow benefits and control capabilities of the 688 when combined with the optional SuperSlot-compatible SL-6 powering and wireless system as well as the CL-12 linear fader controller accessory. “We look forward to bringing valuable knowledge to both new and experienced audio engineers at the next Sound Summit at Full Sail University,” says Tatooles. “The Sound Summit events have proven to be an excellent opportunity to speak with our customers face-to-face. We learn just as much from customers as they do from us manufacturers.”
“We are excited to join the Sound Summit family of leading Pro Audio manufacturers in 2016, as we are celebrating our 20th anniversary. In our 20 years, we’ve continually innovated while staying true to our customer and application focused roots,” says K-Tek Owner and President Brenda Klemme. “The Sound Summit is a great opportunity for us to meet with users and discuss our products and share additional information about them – all while learning more about the day-to-day demands of working in the field.
