Live Music Mixing in a Digital World

                             Featuring Todd Scott, a WAMI Award winning FOH Audio Engineer for the band Backbeat X, who is currently the Director of the audio department at Elmbrook Church, the largest church in the state of Wisconsin. Todd is also the FOH Audio Engineer for the Chris Mariani Band and in October he will be mixing for the Australian band Sons of Korah, on a tour of the midwest. Todd is also an Avid Pro Tools expert. Todd will tell us what it’s like to take care of all things audio for a multi-venue campus, as well as a behind the scenes look at the tasks of a FOH audio engineer. We’ll discuss Mic’ing a live band and work with a multi-track recording to do a virtual sound check mix on a digital mixing console, including vocals and effects.

Also featuring Bormann Marketing, from Hopkins, Minnesota and Steve Savanyu from Audio Technica. Bormann Marketing will be displaying some of the audio equipment lines that they represent and Steve Savanyu will be discussing microphone and techniques for location sound as well as audio for DSLR cameras.

                          Steve is the Director of Educational Services at Audio Technica and is primarily responsible for all aspects of training management, content creation and educational support. An accomplished presenter and teacher, Steve has over 40 years of professional audio experience in live sound, contracting, studio and broadcast applications. He has worked on large live and broadcast events including the Presidential/Vice Presidential Debates (2008 & 2012), and the 2008 New York City Papal Visit. Additionally Steve exercises his creative side producing videos and other interactive content for Audio-Technica’s website, YouTube channel, and trade show exhibits.

Steve is recognized as an INFOCOMM Academy adjunct faculty member and teaches audio courses at Kent State University in Kent Ohio. He has worked as sound supervisor on three Student-produced feature films and keeps up his live sound recording and digital mixing skills with a local Hudson, Ohio sound company. His previous experience included owner/operator of Geneva, IL audio-video media production company Stonewood Studios and Director of Training/Commercial Market Manager at Dukane Corporation, St. Charles Il.

We will wrap up the night with Todd improving field audio with his audio sweetening techniques. These techniques apply to many of the software programs we all use. Bring along an audio file and time permitting, have it sweetened!
