February Webinar: Maximizing Gain-Before-Feedback

“Is this thing on?” says, oh, EVERYONE when they step up to a microphone in the movies or on TV.

And what does the mic always say back? “ZZZZZZ!”

Feedback is the universal, audible indicator for “live microphone.” It’s also just plain annoying. If you’d like to avoid it, then check out February’s Shure Learning Center webinar.

Maximizing Gain-Before-Feedback in Your Sound System
Webinar Description

“Gain-before-feedback” refers to how loud a sound system can be turned up before feedback occurs.

In this hour-long webinar, we will look at tools and techniques for maximizing gain-before-feedback, and bust some myths about less helpful approaches. Michael Pettersen, the resident expert at Shure on all things related to automatic mixers (including their history), will be on hand to add insights from his many years of experience.

We’ll cover the following topics:

  • The causes of feedback (Hint: it’s not the microphone!)
  • Potential acoustic gain
  • Using automatic microphone mixers
  • How feedback reducers work

As always, Shure Learning Center webinars are free to attend, and attendance is first come, first serve.
