Amazingly my career has taken a massive step forward since being a part of Soulsound – I’m really, really grateful. Soulsound has opened up doors in the industry I had no hope of opening myself. One of the best things to happen to my career.▼
Soulsound has been one of the most important point of inflexion in my life.▼
A lot of young engineers suffer from the "am I actually doing this right?" factor. Having a contact with Jon, Justin, Marcel, Darryn and the others is a great way of building your confidence up.▼
The Stagecraft Masterclass was a huge help when I was working as a Live Sound Assistant, and I still use a lot of the tips in the videos everyday. Soulsound is the single best sound engineering resource website for me. The best thing about it is that you have renowned sound engineers sharing their experience and knowledge.▼
It really was a lightbulb moment, and reading your "story" gave me the feeling of "Yes, I can!" and a much needed kick up the backside, you really are one inspirational lady!▼
I have known and worked with Jon Burton in the pro-audio world for many years and have a healthy respect for his knowledge and engineering skills.▼
Justin Grealy is one of the wittiest and most interesting people I've ever met. Probably has the right answer to every existing sound engineering question.▼
Soulsound is FANTASTIC!! From meeting the friendly people that form its nucleus I learned about the site and how it could benefit ME, a young individual that is chasing the dream of becoming a respected Sound Engineer! I fully recommend Soulsound, as they have opened up a whole new world of opportunity for me!▼
I registered because I really care to learn more about sound and it is a great opportunity to expand my knowledge.▼
After attending your 3 seminars on the PLASA Focus and reading your book (twice) I just want to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! It is undoubtedly the most useful "user manual" I've read in a long time.▼
Marcel made me understand audio from a total different approach, I could suddenly connect all the dots in a surprising new approach!▼
Marcel's approach in explaining things is so good that I've literally felt enlightened after every lecture I've had with him.▼
Our freshest new videos, made to inspire you to greater success!
We grabbed an impromptu chat with Jon Burton in his Front of House position, just a few minutes before the doors opened on the final show of The Prodigy’s tour – at Jon’s other favourite venue, Alexandra Palace in London. His first favourite venue, of course, being Brixton Academy.
Jon shows us around his FOH position and effects racks, the tools he uses to get that famous Thumpunderous Prodigy Sound. In Jon’s words, there’s a lot to be said for things with knobs on... Cue Analogue v Digital debate.
From the “Very Angry!” setting to the d&b J-Series PA system, we take a trip into Prodigyland via effects, processors, chaos pads and more. He also discusses preparing the show to move from touring to the festival season. All whilst last minute (very noisy) preparations are going on around us...
This is what live sound engineering is all about.
Marcel is on fire in this final part of the Vocal Recording Masterclass. Listening to the vocalist acoustically is the best place for a sound engineer to start - so you can make decisions about which mics to try out. With the lovely Sarah Moss on vocals (and thanks for your patience, Sarah!), he tests several mics before making his choice, and then takes us through positioning so as to minimise proximity effect, reduce sibilance and get some EQ for free, just through mic placement.
Of course a good recording needs a great performance, so Marcel talks about his work flow when creating headphone mixes that put the singer at ease.
Get to know the sound engineers who have spent their lives gigging and making damn fine records. Get to know the industry from the inside out.
Using video masterclasses and tutorials we bring you the best information from inside the heads of some of the best sound engineers in the business.
Sometimes you need a new idea, sometimes you need a kick up the butt. Soulsound will deliver both, and inspire you to excellence.
