The Second Edition of our Femme Sound Workshop Series:
Sound Tools
Wednesday, January 16, 7-10pm
AKA/PAVED Arts Event Space
You are welcome to attend part 2 even if you didn't attend part 1.  

In this second workshop we will dive into the specifics of an audio console, learning about analogue and digital mixers and taking an in-depth look of a channel strip. We will talk about pre-amps, phase, parametric EQs, Dynamic processing, buss sends, inputs vs. outputs, inserts, VCAs and effects. A basic intro to mixing, what these tools are and how they are used in your mix. 

Jill Mack is a freelance sound tech living in Saskatoon. She tours with The Pack A.D, a garage-rock duo from Vancouver, as their FOH engineer and works at various venues around the city when not on the road. She has also recorded local musician, Ellen Froese’s first full length self-titled LP and plans to record their second album this winter. 

When she is not at a show, or consumed in the nerd-files of audio, Jill indulges in some of her favourite hobbies such as sleeping, a little yoga and sad attempts at playing drums. 

This workshop is FREE for children and adults alike. You do not need to be a PAVED Arts member to attend. Although this workshop is designed for a Femme Audience, all genders are welcome to attend. There will be a brief talk by Girls Rock Saskatoon and SaskMusic will be providing light food and drinks.
