Sound system optimisation seminar in Backnang, Germany: small print

This seminar provides guidance on how to improve the quality of your sound system. We will guide you through the optimisation process in theory and practice.


Participants should be conversant with sound system design, set up and commissioning. General knowledge of acoustic measurement systems is advantageous. To be able to participate in the hands-on part, please bring the following with you: Laptop computer (Windows PC or Apple computer with BootCamp and native Windows installation) and full-duplex audio interface with two inputs and two outputs on XLR connectors (please bring adaptors to XLR if your interface has different connectors). Please make sure that the audio interface is working properly with your computer.

We will be using a common software platform (Tuning Capture) for the seminar, so that everybody is able to perform measurements in the same way. A full licence of this software will be handed out as part of your seminar documentation on the seminar day.

The goal

The participants should be able to optimise a sound system with a newly acquired theoretical and practical knowledge and the help of a computer- based measurement system.


  • Introduction into the basics and history of relevant measurement technology.
  • Getting to know the system design and a "pre flight check" with the "system of the day".
  • The following optimisation process involves a step by step path through the tuning of the system. The frequency response, the TOP-SUB alignment and the tuning and alignment of fill loudspeakers will be performed in theory and practice. This session requires the cooperation of the participants.
  • After listening to the complete tuned system, the seminar will be rounded up with a questions and answers session.


The content is conveyed in a format that uses practical examples and encourages participants to exchange experiences and play an active role.
