Sound Made Simple is an interactive learning application that takes an 'academic' approach to teach the basic fundamentals of audio, acoustics and sound system equipment.
Sound Made Simple uses eye-catching animation paired with an easy-to-understand presentation that teaches the basic fundamentals of audio and acoustics using a unique, academic approach the industry has yet to see.
Topics covered include:
Sound & Hearing
(Explains the physics of sound & how the brain and ears work)
Signal Path & Gain Structure
(Describes how signal travels through an audio system)
(Explains control knobs, busses, faders, inputs & outputs)
(Explains filters, equalizers and how to EQ a system)
(Unveils the mystery of echoes, reflections and noise control)
(Explains how microphones work, differ and placement technique)
(Defines the different types of processors and their functions)
(Clarifies amplifier settings, features and configurations)
(Explains the core components, coverage and types of loudspeakers in an audio system)
Cables, Connectors & Impedance
(Defines the various types of cables, connectors and interfaces found in an audio system)
Several of the units include interactive objects that allow the user to have hands on experience without requiring a full size audio system. The interactive mixing console accurately simulates the look, feel, and function of a real console and incorporates full functionality of the channel and master faders, pan controls, and mute buttons while allowing the user to mix real instrument tracks in real time. There are over 350 comprehensive academic-based modules in a well designed application ideal for both individual and group training sessions.
Sound Made Simple is the perfect solution for those who are new to the industry, system operators unfamiliar with the underpinnings of an audio system, and anyone needing a refresher course of the basics. It is a great teaching tool that can be used in various curricula and is a great alternative to “how-to” DVD’s and expensive seminars.
Sound Made Simple is revolutionizing the way we teach & learn by implementing creative educational techniques that appeal to sound system operators.
