UCI to host Meyer SIM-3 Training and System Design seminar

From Tuesday, March 29 through Friday. April 1, 2011 we will be hosting a Meyer advanced seminar in sound system design and optimization using the SIM-3 analyzer.  As taken from the Meyer website:

This in-depth seminar provides participants with a thorough theoretical and operational understanding of source independent measurement and a solid grounding in application of SIM analysis in the design of complex audio systems. The seminar gives a brief review of SIM theory and system development, followed by a comprehensive discussion of field use procedures for the SIM 3 audio analyzer. The seminar then extends the foundation of SIM measurement into sound system design. Participants will look at the complex interactions of loudspeakers in a variety of configurations and acoustical environments from the standpoints of phase, frequency and impulse responses.

The class will be led by industry leader and expert, Bob McCarthy.  Bob is author of "Sound Systems: Design and Optimization - Modern Techniques and Tools for Sound System Design and Alignment" (2nd ed., Focal Press, 2010 - ISBN 0240521560).

There is still room left for this seminar.  This is only the second time for this session to be held in Orange County and we are honored to have been chosen as the host again.  It will be held onstage in the Claire Trevor Theatre here on the UCI Campus.  Ask anyone who has taken this seminar and they will undoubtedly tell you how immensely valuable it is.

  1. I took this class while I was interning at Cirque du Soleil in the Spring of '09. I wish I could take the week off work and take it again!
