Exploring Sound Reinforcement by Yamaha:

Produced in conjunction with Yamaha, this two-hour DVD covers every aspect of live sound reinforcement from the equipment to the intricacies of putting it all together. Plenty of helpful hints and expert advice are given throughout. This is a must-see for anyone planning or currently operating a sound system.

As a commendable follow-up to Yamaha's Sound Reinforcement Handbook, this new instructional DVD from Yamaha Professional Audio is an excellent resource for beginners and professionals who do live sound. Executive Produced by John Schauer of Yamaha Corporation of America in cooperation with Shure and produced by Keyfax NewMedia, the two-hour-plus DVD is an instructive break down of the use of audio amplification systems. The disc features six languages-English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Japanese-and contains no region encoding, so it can be played anywhere in the world without formatting issues.

The disc includes five sections covering basic sound system components with an approach that you know virtually nothing about sound reinforcement. Chapters include Introduction, The Equipment, Putting It All Together, and Live Applications. Each chapter is broken down into subchapters covering everything from cabling, microphones, sample system setups, to mixing and monitoring techniques, as well as troubleshooting. All aspects are individually addressed so that you can skip to an area you need, without wading through a lot of information you don't need. The presentation is interspersed with hands-on demonstrations, tips and techniques used in real live sound situations along with advice from experts.
