PMC Speakers is launching ‘The Hear More Tour’, a series of free seminars and playback demonstrations aimed at exploring the intricacies of high end professional monitoring, with the first set of dates in South Africa.
In conjunction with its South African distributor, Benjamin Pro Audio, PMC will showcase its line-up of professional studio products including the twotwo nearfield range, the latest IB1S-AIII 3-way activated monitors and the popular IB1S passive monitors.
“The Hear More Tour will highlight exactly what separates world class speakers from mediocre designs,” said PMC’s export sales manager Chris Allen (pictured) who will be presenting each seminar. “We’ll be getting under the hood of our unique ATL monitor speakers to explain how and why we design monitors the way we do, why we focus so heavily on hand-built quality and the massive benefits our approach brings to professional users. Attendees will be able to hear a variety of material through a range of PMC products so that they can experience the full capabilities of PMC speakers for themselves.”
Throughout the tour, attendees will also have the opportunity to discuss high level studio monitoring with recording professionals who will showcase their craft and share their skills.
Guest speakers include mastering engineers Troye Lilley, head of Troye Lilley Mastering in Cape Town, and Rogan Kelsey, of Kelsey Mastering in Bryanston.
“These seminars are designed to appeal to a wide range of attendees, from those who are already making a living in this field through to students who want to learn from the professionals,” Allen added.
The South African tour kicks off at Digital Forest Studios in Cape Town on August 8. It then moves to Cape Town’s Academy of Sound Engineering on August 10, Pop Filter Studios in Pretoria on August 12, Howard Audio in Johannesburg on August 13 and the Academy of Sound Engineering in Johannesburg on August 15.
