Requirements

  • Practical use of the d&b R1 Remote Control and ArrayCalc software is mandatory.
  • Participants should be experienced in setting up and using d&b systems.
  • Knowledge and practical experience with Dante audio networks are required.
  • A laptop running Windows 7 or greater / macOS 10.7 (Lion) or higher with a RJ45 Ethernet network port or equivalent adapter.

Conditions

Prior participation in at least ONE of the following training courses is REQUIRED:
  • d&b Workflow workshop since 2016
  • J/V-Series workshop since 2016
  • Y/T-Series since 2016
  • Line Array workshop since 2016
  • d&b Software and System fundamentals workshop.

If you do not meet the preconditions above please sign up for the “d&b Software and System Fundamentals workshop” on this registration page by selecting the checkbox below.

About needed background knowledge:
The d&b Soundscape workshop assumes fundamental knowledge and experienced handling of d&b audiotechnik systems. There will be no basic and fundamental explanations about the use of the ArrayCalc and R1 Software or Dante audio networks. Regular operation of these tools is a precondition for meaningful participation. The workshop content focuses on numerous additional features to confidently plan and operate a d&b Soundscape system using the d&b workflow.

Not required, but recommended:

  • A working knowledge of the configuration and operation of Dante based audio networks.
  • d&b IP and Dante networks workshop or d&big Networkshop or a Dante level 2 certificate.

If there are any questions or uncertainties regarding the preconditions to this workshop, we will be pleased to answer any call or email for clarification. Or simply communicate your request/concern when filling out the registration form.

More details

The Goal

Participants will gain theoretical and practical experience to confidently plan and set up a d&b Soundscape system. Efficient configuration examples are demonstrated as well as the use of protocols, such as Dante, OCA, and OSC. All this will provide a general overview to reliably link d&b systems with audio signals and control networks.

Content

  • We will start with an introduction to the motivation and ideas behind the d&b Soundscape system approach.
  • Detailed view of the features of the DS100 signal matrix and its configurations.
  • Refresh of localization and psychoacoustic principles.
  • Introduction to En-Scene, the positioning algorithm within the DS100. From mono through stereo to object-based signal reproduction.
  • Discussion on Soundscape system design criteria. What should the system provide in terms of coverage and loudspeaker quantity?
  • En-Scene function groups and their behavior regarding signal processing on several loudspeaker groups.
  • Moving Sound Objects: Sound Object behavior and sound object parameters.
  • ArrayCalc special features regarding Soundscape. How does Soundscape integrate into the d&b workflow?
  • Considerations regarding room acoustics and their influence on reverberation times.
  • Introduction to the working principles of En-Space, the onboard engine for emulated room acoustics.
  • En-Space signal flow and working principles in conjunction with En-Scene.
  • Control of the d&b Soundscape using external controllers. Basic introduction to the OSC protocol and mapping principles for external Soundscape control.

Method

The workshop or seminar content is conveyed in a format that encourages the participants to play an active role, for example to exchange experiences or use practical examples.
