Nice! I am a FOH engineer, and really want to get my hands on the SSL LIVE
Yeah! I've been running a Yamaha DM1000 VCM for a while now (mostly for church) It's been a great board to learn on, but it's a far jump from quality/capabilities of SSL's boards. Heck of a lot cheaper though. :P
Nothing Wrong with the Yamaha Consoles. I have used them a bunch too, especially at churches.
Yeah, man! Any advice or input if I wanted to pursue a permanent FOH/audio engineer role somewhere? I am currently in my junior year of high school, taking general ed classes at the local community college before transferring. No idea what I want to major in or pursue in life, but this is definitely an area of interest. Any classes I should take? (I know there are a couple general sound + audio classes involved with theater/band performances) or online classes? Or any colleges I should consider applying too at the end of next year? Or should I just find some general books on the subject and start reading the heck out em? :P
Hey Nathan,There are many ways to get started in the industry so you can explore several options. It sounds like you are getting some good hands on experience mixing at church. I went to Full Sail University in Florida and studied Show Production. This is the most expensive option. But where i grew up there were not many opportunities to get hands on training. Where do you live?? With Spring around the corner it would be good to try and find some work with a local production company. You will probably start out just loading and unloading trucks, but its a good start just to be around guys and pick their brains when there is a chance. There are a couple of really good books too. Live Sound Reinforcement is my favorite and is easy to read and understand. Yamaha Sound Reinforcement Handbook is another but is more in depth. If any of your friends are in bands offer to run sound for them for free to get experience mixing different genres of music. Let me know where you are located and i will try and point you to a couple companies. Remember this though. When dealing with professional audio engineers take time and listen. You have 2 ears, and 1 mouth. You should listen twice as much as you speak.
Marcanthony,I will definitely look into those books and Full Sail. (And probe some of my friends as well ;). I am currently in the greater Minneapolis/St Paul Minnesota area. Thanks for the time + input. I certainly appreciate it.
Those last words are great as well. Pretty sure that applies across all of life, and definitely in learning any new field. Doing my best to take that to heart. You'll go a lot further in life if you're willing to listen.

Click the Red Sound link about half way down the page. Then put in areas you live near. This will bring up companies you can reach out to. Keep in mind Full Sail is an extremely expensive option. I went there because where i grew up there were not many opportunities to learn this craft. If you call Full Sail ask for Kendall Tabor. He is a good friend of mine and could help get you all the info you need. Tell him Marc Mandin sent you his way. He could possibly help set up a visit to tour the campus or something.
I looked through the list and will hit up some of those companies to discuss options. Many thanks for providing some direction for me!
