Harman’s Polish distributors ESS Audio arrived at Klub Wytwornia in the City of Lodz recently to coincide with the annual SoundEdit Festival, an international event for music producers and sound designers. 

Brian Eno may have been headlining, but behind the scenes, 170 tour sound engineers turned up to support ESS Audio’s series of workshops, which were presented at the festival for the second consecutive year. 

Showcasing products from the Harman Professional portfolio, the workshops were designed to train sound professionals in the methods of tuning sound systems, including tops, subwoofers (in cardioid, front and end-fire configurations) using JBL HiQnet Performance Manager, JBL Line Array Calculator (LAC-II) and Smaart software. Soundcraft’s new Vi5000 was also tied into the working rig, while another Vi2000 console was on show as well as the JBL VTX M22 stage monitor.

“Everyone loved the event,” saidESS Audio director, Witold Karalow, before confirming that the company is already preparing another similar event in March and has confirmed that it will be returning to SoundEdit 2017.

Significantly, the workshops mark the start of a training academy programme which is expected be rolled out across the EMEA region by Harman in 2017. According to Ed Jackson, Harman Senior Application Engineer, Tour Sound, EMEA, these System Optimisation Workshops will be led by Harman technical personnel, under his supervision.

He explained, “This follows on from the training we did in Ibiza earlier this summer and will cover JBL VTX line array theory and the integration of Smaart measurement software. We will also be running training on the Soundcraft Vi consoles for both Mixing and Servicing engineers. In addition to knowledge sharing, the idea is to build up face-to-face contact with end users.”
