Mixer

Want to improve your Live Sound skills? Start here with this course on Mixing Console Fundamentals.

People always come up to me at shows and say, "Do you really know what all those knobs do?" And fair enough! Especially when you're looking at a large analog console with tons and tons of buttons and knobs, it can seem a little intimidating. But if you learn the concepts in this course, you'll be on your way to getting some great results on a mixing console.

Obviously, if you're a professional sound engineer, this is critical stuff to know. But, it's also very helpful if you’re a musician performing on stage. Since the whole PA system (including the monitors) is controlled by a mixer, what we cover here will help you with your show no matter if you're on stage or behind the soundboard.

My name's Scott Adamson and I've been mixing FOH (Front of House) for live shows for over 20 years. During that time, I've been lucky to tour with a ton of amazing artists: Haim, Khalid, Passion Pit, St. Vincent, Ingrid Michaelson, Sleater-Kinney, Fred Armisen, The Hold Steady, and many more. I've done shows at some of the most iconic venues in the world, from the Sydney Opera House to Madison Square Garden to the main stage at Coachella.

Along the way I had to learn everything on the job! I really wish there had been a good resource to get all this information when I was starting out — it would have put me light years ahead in building my skills. And now that The Production Academy has given free material to thousands of people around the globe, I'm happy we're helping people who want to learn about live sound!
