      Comments about Yamaha DVD: Exploring Sound Reinforcement:

      As a production sound mixer, I know a lot about recording production sound in the field. But I knew very little about sound reinforcement, and found my self in need of a course.

      This video is very good at explaining what mics are best to use; different types of mixers; how the mixer works and how to set it up properly; and speaker types and the proper placement of them.

      Though it's becoming a bit dated (2005), the information is still relevant.

        Comments about Yamaha DVD: Exploring Sound Reinforcement:

        This product gives a basic overview of basic sound equipment, principally regarding their function and application. It is nice that they include few "real-world" examples, along with commentary from a few sound engineers and musicians. I would have liked a little more detail in general, but this product serves as a good crash course for those with minimal to no familiarity within this field.

          Watched the DVD start to finish and now understand much more about the uses of a sound board and considerations in setting up a sound system for amplification and recording.

          Excellent Overview of Sound Systems

          By Gregory

            Comments about Yamaha DVD: Exploring Sound Reinforcement:

            This is a very good overview of sound from mics to amps, mixers and speakers along with many other helpful topics. This would be a great training video for churches or non-profits who have volunteers running their sound system. Also, I would recommend that all musicians watch this video so they have an understanding of sound systems.

            They also cover portable systems and would be good for people with event driven needs such as wedding planners, event coordinators and technical staff- anyone who needs to understand what is involved in making sure their guest can be clearly heard and who might have to adjust the sound during the event.

            The only think I would have done to improve it is I would have liked to see more about how to mic specific instruments, such as pianos, drums, trumpet, etc. Other than this, it is a great video and well worth the money.

                Comments about Yamaha DVD: Exploring Sound Reinforcement:

                This is a great resource for anybody wanting to know a little bit more about their sound system. It is broken down into sections that are easy to follow going from microphones to loudspeakers...
                You can change the langauge to Spanish and the subtitles follow too. German, Japanese and French are also in there.
                Highly reccomended!

                This is a great DVD that takes even novices through the basics of a sound system. It also covers some applications and some good working practices. It is in 5 different languages and the subtitles change along with the languages.
