Change the Way You Think About Sound

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. In that spirit, we introduce our new modular course format, promising the utmost topical precision, scalability, and application. With this step forward, we strike an essential balance between theory and practice to situate concepts firmly in the technology, and by extension, the real world.

System Design & Optimization

This two-day course explores the relationship between the predictive perspective of the MAPP XT System Design Tool and actual sound system performance as measured with the SIM 3 Audio Analyzer. 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 modeled and real space, and with it, a more informed approach to accurately designing and optimizing systems using Meyer Sound solutions.
