October Webinar - How to Choose and Use Personal Monitor Systems

Cheryl DaProza | October 9, 2014 October Webinar - How to Choose and Use Personal Monitor Systems
Stage monitors have come a long way. In the early days of rock 'n roll, they didn't even exist. Performers had to rely on sound from the house speakers to hear themselves. Floor wedges came along soon after, and, while they helped, their main advantage was in giving errant guitar players a handy place to prop their feet during blistering solos.

Fortunately, now musicians have the benefit of personal monitor systems. These systems take a performer's personal mix and put it right into their ears with the help of Sound Isolating earphones. For musicians just starting out, a personal monitor system might seem like an expensive and intimidating option, but there are many great systems on the market today that make the transition simple and cost-effective.

Join us on October 27 as we show you how to choose and configure your next personal monitor system.

How to Choose and Use Personal Monitor Systems

Shure has added a new system to its lineup: PSM®300 Stereo Personal Monitor System. PSM 300 has two offerings: one easy-to-use system designed for entry-level users, and a professional system with advanced features and performance.

While the majority of musicians and monitor engineers are clear on the advantages of personal monitors, the proper ways to configure a personal monitor system are not as well known. Since no two situations are identical, it's up to the user to decide how to use the system, from selecting the right system, to purchasing the right number of components, to making connections.

In this one-hour webinar, Gino Sigismondi, Shure Systems Support Manager and author of Selection and Operation of Personal Monitor Systems, will give a brief overview of PSM 300, then cover the critical aspects of configuring a personal monitor system, including tips on successfully transitioning from stage monitors to in-ears, and supplemental equipment that can enhance the experience.

Whether you are a musician considering the purchase of a personal monitor system, a sound system installer for houses of worship, or a sound engineer working with live music, this webinar will arm you with everything you need to know about using personal monitors.
