SoundGirls L-Acoustics Grants 2022 

 

L-Acoustics is offering 4 grants for courses in the L-Acoustics Education Program. The Education Team  has structured the grants to relate to certain job profiles to help the recipient advance their knowledge  and skills in their respective fields:

This grant focuses on offering access to in-person training via our packaged seminars. For in-person attendance of courses, hotel accommodations are included with the grant. Grant recipients are responsible for any additional travel expenses.

Prospective candidates must be members of SoundGirls and have until September 30, 2022, to submit their application. Winners will be announced on the website and social media on November 1,  2022. Candidates can only apply for one choice of grant.

The recipient can choose to attend the courses at any time between the time of being informed of their award and December 31, 2023. 


System Technician Grant: 

This grant consists of enrollment in the following courses in the L-Acoustics Education Program:

System Engineer Grant: 

The recipient requires prior completion or concurrent enrollment to System & Workflow, or previous completion of System Fundamentals. This grant consists of enrollment in the following courses in the  L-Acoustics Education Program:

o Soundvision 

Learn the most advanced software functionalities for 3D venue modeling, system simulation, and line source optimization. 

o Drive System 

Master the configuration, control, and monitoring of an L-Acoustics system from the source output to the loudspeaker inputs. 

o M1/P1 Measurement & Tuning 

Learn how to record measurements with the P1 processor and how to perform a  loudspeaker system tuning with the M1 software. 

This grant aims to empower the trainee to learn how to design and calibrate an L-Acoustics system. It  also aims to deepen the learner’s understanding of:

❑ Soundvision, Network Manager, and M1 software

❑ Room modeling for optimized loudspeaker system design

❑ AVB Milan for audio distribution

L-ISA Grant: 

The recipient requires prior completion or concurrent enrollment to System & Workflow, or previous completion of System Fundamentals. This grant invites the recipient to attend all the L-ISA-focused  courses from L-Acoustics Education:

o L-ISA Technology 

Start your immersive journey with an overview of the L-ISA Technology from loudspeaker system design, object-based mixing, and immersive audio algorithms to project workflow. 

o L-ISA Loudspeaker System 

Master key system engineering steps in planning and deploying L-ISA systems:  loudspeaker system design, implementation, and calibration. 

o L-ISA Live Mixing 

Create an immersive live mix, directly from your desk input channels or from an original left-right mix. 

o L-ISA Preproduction 

Learn and experience the preproduction process of an L-ISA live event from the studio to the venue, anticipating the constraints of the large scale. 

This grant empowers the trainee to design, implement, and calibrate an L-Acoustics L-ISA system. This grant also empowers the trainee to prepare, encode, and control objects in an L-ISA mix as well as create a mix in L-ISA when walking up to a L-ISA system with or without preproduction. It also  aims to deepen the student’s understanding of:

❑ L-ISA Controller software and L-ISA Technology

❑ Soundvision, Network Manager, and L-ISA Controller software

❑ Software, processors, and amplified controllers

❑ Good practices for L-ISA-ready loudspeaker system design, implementation, and calibration ❑ Creating and monitoring an L-ISA mix on loudspeakers and in binaural listening environments ❑ Good practices for preproduction and visiting engineer support on a loudspeaker system  using L-ISA technology

Completion of the courses in this grant includes 1-year access to the L-Acoustics Education Platform learning community and content for all the courses.

System Expert Grant 

This grant consists of enrollment in the following courses in the L-Acoustics Education Program:

o Variable Curvature Line Source 

Perfect your understanding of line source behavior to optimize your mechanical design and use of electronic settings.  

o Loudspeaker System Calibration 

Develop a comprehensive approach to calibration in the entire workflow of a project. 

This grant aims to empower the trainee to advance their understanding of system optimization as well as learn about:

❑ Acoustic behavior of a variable curvature line source and its sonic performances over the audience.

❑ Physical deployment of a variable curvature line source so that electronic adjustments become optimization rather than correction.

❑ The goal of a loudspeaker system calibration and its link to the other project stages: design,  implementation, and operation.

❑ A rational methodology for the verification, the tuning, and the handover of a loudspeaker system.

❑ Best practices for an accurate and representative measurement of a loudspeaker system frequency response.

Completion of the courses in this grant includes 1-year access to the L-Acoustics Education Platform learning community and content for all the courses.
