The three professional audio location capture manufacturers will demonstrate products commonly used in the field, including DPA’s d:screet Miniature Microphones and d:dicate 4017B Shotgun Microphone, Lectrosonics’ new L Series and DSW wireless microphone systems and the Sound Devices 664 Field Mixer and rack-mounted 970 64-Track Dante and MADI Audio Recorder.
The event will take place from 3 to 9 p.m., with short technology presentations from the manufacturers at 4 and 7 p.m. Breakout sessions presented by location sound practitioners will take place at 5 and 8 p.m. Additionally, leaders from all three companies; Eric Mayer, president of DPA Microphones, Inc.; Karl Winkler, director of business development for Lectrosonics and Jon Tatooles, co-founder and chief business development officer for Sound Devices, LLC; will be available during the event to discuss the best practices for utilizing all three brands during a production.
Fernando Delgado and his team from Stickman Sound will be in attendance and will demonstrate their unique audio solutions for a variety of hit shows, including UFC’s The Ultimate Fighter (FX) and Top Chef (Bravo). In addition, Daniel McCoy, C.A.S. with ToneMesa, Inc. will be on hand to discuss his equipment and techniques on shows such as Shark Tank (CNBC), The Ellen DeGeneres Show (NBC), Tosh.O (Comedy Central) and Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge (Syfy).
“I have known both Karl and Jon since the mid-90s and we all share the same sensibilities when it comes to meeting the needs of our common marketplace,” says Mayer. “By joining forces, we hope to bring together a large audience that wishes to meet and see our respective products, and to hear the latest and greatest from each of us. This event will be a great opportunity for attendees to meet each other and talk about their experiences in the field using many of the solutions that we manufacture. Think of the Sound Summit as sort of a ‘Meet Up’ for users of DPA Microphones, Lectrosonics and Sound Devices products. I’m confident it will be fun for all!”
“We're excited about this event because it gives us a chance to get to know the community in a casual, sharing atmosphere,” states Winkler. “We anticipate this taking off rather well, leading, hopefully, to similar events in other large metropolitan areas such as New York, Chicago, Atlanta and other cities along the way.”
Tatooles is equally enthusiastic about the upcoming seminar, “Events such as the Sound Summit are an excellent opportunity for companies, like ours, to meet with our customers, listen to their feedback, share experiences, and learn from them. We are pleased to be an integral part of this program.”
