Workshop (Banff): Meyer Sound Workshops – Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity


System Design and Optimization Training Overview

This two-day course explores the relationship between the predictive perspective of the MAPP XT System Design Tool and actual sound system performance with the SIM 3 Audio Analyzer. The instructor will generate and compare data using both tools to help users better understand the correlation between the two.

Upon completion of the course, participants will have a clearer idea of how sound systems behave in both modeled and real space, and a more informed approach to accurately designing and optimizing systems using Meyer Sound solutions.

This course is eligible for 13 AVIXA Renewal Units for CTS, CTS-D and CTS-I certification levels.

Course modules for System Design and Optimization include:

Designing with MAPP XT, System Design: LEO Family Aim & Splay, Main Systems, Fill Systems, Delay Systems, Relay Systems, Low frequency Control Theory and Recipes, Galaxy & Compass Applications, Measurement Analyzers, Acoustics 101, Acoustics 202, System Verification with FFT, Sub Alignment with FFT, System Optimization: EQ, Delay, Level, Aim, Splay, Low-Mid Beam Control, and Subjective System Voicing

Low Frequency Control Workshop Overview

Fusing classroom theory with practical exercises, this one-day course addresses a range of considerations when working with subwoofers and the Meyer Sound LFC product line in particular. Topics include verification procedures, cardioid and array configurations, effective cancellation techniques, main-to-LF scaling and alignment, and approaches to combining different subwoofers within a single system.

Course modules for Low Frequency Control include:

Subwoofer Fundamentals, Verification, Cardioid Configurations: In-Line Gradient, Cardioid Configurations: In–Line End-Fire, Cardioid Configurations: Inverted Stack Gradient, Auto-Efficiency, Mind the Gap, Symmetrical Arrays vs Asymmetrical Arrays, Horizontal Arrays, Meyer Sound LFC Settings, VLFC, Main-to-LF Configurations, Power Scaling: Main-to-LF Ratios, Main-to-LF Alignment, Subwoofer Combinations, Delay Subwoofers
