A Legacy of Learning

Meyer Sound enjoys a long history of educating the professional audio community, dating back to the early development of the original SIM Seminar. Comprehensive and science-based, our training program delivers content tailored to all disciplines and experience levels. Whether you are an aspiring student, a touring sound veteran, a skilled system integrator, or an audio consultant with multiple advanced degrees, we present tools and techniques to help you attain the best possible performance from your sound system.

Experts in the Field

Our instructors draw from a deep well of knowledge, built on decades of experience as system designers, technicians, and FOH engineers. Their extensive work in the field, across many industry sectors, affords them a unique ability to explain intricate concepts in comprehensible terms, all while maintaining a fun, engaging learning environment.

The Modular Edge

Meyer Sound approaches training with the same eye toward innovation that defines our products. Never static, our program continues to evolve with groundbreaking content and instructional techniques.

Course Descriptions

Portable System Deployment

This course provides the foundation today’s users require to accurately deploy portable live sound systems, whatever the size and application.

Attendees acquire a working knowledge of the entire process, from initial system design to final verification, and everything in between. All topics are demonstrated in practice using Meyer Sound solutions, including loudspeakers, rigging hardware, the MAPP 3D System Design Tool, Galileo GALAXY Network Platform, Compass Control Software, RMServer Remote Monitoring System, MDM Power and Signal Distribution Module, and FFT‑based transfer‑function analyzers.

Though this course focuses primarily on live sound, the content is suitable for anyone involved in designing and deploying sound systems, either portable or installed. Whether you are an aspiring student, or a seasoned professional with decades of experience, equip yourself with the tools and techniques to take your ideal sound system from concept to reality.

System Design & Optimization

This course explores the relationship between the predictive perspective of the MAPP 3D Sound System Design Tool and actual sound system performance as measured with FFT‑based transfer‑function analyzers. The instructor will generate and compare data using both tools, in order to help users better understand the correlation between the two. Upon completion of the course, attendees will possess a clearer idea of how sound systems behave in both modelled and real space, and with it, a more informed approach to accurately designing and optimizing systems using Meyer Sound solutions.
