d&b Software and system fundamentals workshop in Backnang, Germany: small print


Participants should be experienced in tackling sound engineering problems and should want to acquire an introduction to the basics of the d&b software and system world. They should have experience in handling PC-based computer systems. Attendance of a d&basics Workshop or a d&b Product Workshop would be an advantage. Please bring your own laptop running at least Windows 7 or higher or OS X 10.7 or higher with RJ45 network port or adapter.

The goal

Participants learn about the d&b workflow and how to implement it. They are shown how to send all the relevant parameters to the system by means of remote control software, from the start of system planning and simulation, through to the resulting user interface.


The d&b System Reality

What does a d&b system actually consist of?

The d&b Workflow overview

Introduction to process flows for planning, simulation, remote network, and data transfer to system amplifiers.

ArrayCalc Planning Software

d&b system configurations should only be planned using the proprietary ArrayCalc simulation program.

d&b R1 and Remote Network Basics

Basics of how to wire up remote networks, and of the R1 Remote control software. Creating a remote control user interface manually, and creating an intuitive R1 interface automatically from an existing ArrayCalc project.

Practical Part with d&b System Amplifiers

The workshop is rounded off by the participants learning how to configure the system amplifiers and to connect and load generated system parameters.


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