    I recently saw David’s webinar on live sound and was so pleased with his approach, knowledge and concern for the listener, I purchased the “Ultimate Live Sound School” DVD set for my sound team at our church. Although I have not gone through the whole thing yet, I have watched several sections which were great!!! He really breaks down the info and makes it real user friendly. It also really helped us because he is using the same sound board/mixer (Presonus Studio Live 24.4.2).
    I highly recommend this DVD set for learning the basics to intermediate level, and even if your a pro, you could always learn a thing or two ;-)
    The price is unbeatable as well, so spread the word. You can’t find this kind of knowledge, teaching and training for this price anywhere!!
    In my 30 years as a musician/performer/session player/engineer & worship leader, David’s passion and knowledge through his dvds are way worth it.

    I have had training with some top ranked audio engineers and worked with live and recorded sound in various venues.
    I came across ProAudioDVDs and since I am always wanting to learn as much as I can and extend my knowledge base as well as learning easier ways of doing tasks, I watched Dave’s free videos and decided to give his course a try.
    After receiving the course I dove right in and I can say that I learned in 30 minutes of Dave’s training techniques what it took other audio engineers 8 hour seminars to explain and they still left many questions unanswered.
    The course is fantastic and you can’t go wrong if you really want to understand the how and why’s of mixing sound at a reasonable price.
    In addition any technical questions you have Dave is great about getting back to you fast.
    Thanks Dave for all your hard work and keep it up the good work.

    I attended David’s webinar and have to say that it was very informative. I have been running sound for 15 years and it always amazes me that I learn something new. Davids webinar course is very organized and kept simple. He goes over the checklist that every sound engineer professional or volunteer should have every time they run sound.
    I purchased the DVD set and reviewed several sections especially “Using a mixing Console”, and “Mixing”.
    Recently I met with the worship director at my church and was told that He had been getting feedback about how good the mixing was for sound. That comment alone is worth a thousand bucks!
    Also David is really a great guy who really tries to help. When I have contacted David with a question or just a comment, He responds quickly and he is very encouraging.
    So sign up for the webinar and get the DVDs, they are worth every dollar!
    Thanks David!

    David thanks for making the recording process that much more comprehensible as well as enjoyable. You cleared up some things that just didn’t come together for me. Your layout was smooth and I found guides through the maze of the signal chain and workflow. I recommend your work to anyone who really wants to understands recording or live sound. I’m looking forward to new ventures. Keep up the good work. Thanks again and take care.

    P.S. You have a beautiful family mate.

    I am head of sound at a large church in the Columbus, Ohio area. The Ultimate Live Sound School DVDs have helped get our volunteers up to speed quickly without having to spend hundreds of hours developing training. The DVDs are well produced and the content is presented in a simple, logical progression. David makes foundational knowledge, that often takes years to learn, easy to understand. I have worked with many national and international acts, and would confidently recommend the DVDs to anyone wanting to learn the most important elements of live sound.

    I am the Audio/Visual Manager for Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge. Part of my job is training our clients to run tech and sound for both their time here as well as when they leave for their individual churches. Prior to having the Ultimate Live Sound School it was a constant battle to teach men and women who had no previous tech experience. With the help of this DVD series these classes will no longer be a guessing game! I have been running live sound for over 10 years, and this class has compressed every bit of knowledge I could share into 6 hours. Thank you David for stepping in where you saw a need! Your DVD training is a gift from God! Also that Aussie Accent makes the series much more enjoyable!

    I’m a church musician from the Philippines and wanted to learn the curve of the sound engineer world. I’m a newbie and these DVD training course really helps me a lot. This is my second box set. The first one was the Ultimate Recording, I enjoyed it and decided to get this Live Sound Box Set too.

    Thanks David.
