“Live Audio Basics” hits a bulls-eye in providing much needed training for live sound… The “Live Audio Basics” series offers technical training and ‘real world’ advice and insight that is the best I’ve seen. And, unlike most training videos, this one is truly fun to watch.
If you have a good sound man that you want to raise up to be GREAT, I highly recommend the ‘Live Audio Basics” DVD. It’s a sound investment that your congregation will thank you for!

As Chaplain Music Coordinator for 2 military installations, I’ve found your “Live Audio Basics” to be an invaluable tool to help train our A/V volunteers. Your DVD brings even the most inexperienced volunteer up to speed very quickly

Review from Music Educators Journal:
Live Audio Basics delivers an engaging look at the process of audio engineering and sound reinforcement. It intelligently and clearly describes what each button and dial on a mixing console does, how to understand signal flow and microphone patterns, how to use stage monitors, and the basics of acoustics. Ron Davis has crafted a clever delivery of real-world topics that both beginner and seasoned engineers may encounter.
Live Audio Basics is ideal for in-class viewing, supporting instructional material, or personal in-home use. It’s comprehensive and engaging enough for beginners and experienced technicians to enjoy and learn from, even after multiple viewings.

Godsend (god-send) n. - an unexpected thing or event that is particularly welcome and timely, as if sent by God.
…I don't think that it would be an exaggeration to tell you that "Live Audio Basics" instructional DVD is a Godsend (see above definition).
From the author of PlayPianoTODAY.com -
"Way too many churches and schools have nightmare sound problems (Feedback!, Mic levels wrong, "Can't hear myself in the monitor"...) Sound familiar? …This powerful course will educate AND encourage your volunteer sound people. Your days of squealing feedback will be over! :)
Powerful information delivered in a style that will crack you up - this is the best sound system training course available." - David Sprunger
‘…it gives some good tips on how to avoid common mistakes, and does so in a lively enough way that it captured (and held) the attention of the high school students who run our church PA system…”
