From guessing to knowing!

The Allen & Heath SQ Tutorial provided much needed technical information in an easily understandable manner. It enabled me to quickly find and fix some problems that I have struggled with for a long time. I highly recommend all the ProAudio tutorials for beginners and more advanced church AV staff.

Great SQ Videos

It was great to have someone to through what everything does in detail. We got our sound system a couple of years ago. So, thank you so much Dave.

Allen & Heath SQ series

Amazing and comprehensive tutorial over that SQ series.

Exactly what I was looking for….

I was complainimg to my Sweetwater rep that Allen and Heath videos are too quick and condensed to grasp the scope of the SQ5. They are more marketing videos, where I wanted training videos. I found many on YouTube that addressed a small portirom of the board, but they were scattered about. I needed a start to finish package. Someone who understood the foundation of learning, and taught sequentially, where each video drew on what came before.

Then I found David. The course is comprehensive and at the proper pace to learn what the board is capable of. It sets you up to begin learning as no one can teach experience, one needs to dig in and get ones hands on the workflows to master the board. Maybe others who come with more experience with digital boards would feel differently.

Some subjects need a bit more depth. Id like to see him add to what he has created as we (the end users) call for help with certain subjects…. Id like to see greater detail on the record and playback for,example.

David is so approachable, I may ask him if he wiling do additional in depth amendments of the boards setup and workflows. Like a masterclass of the SQ series. I’d pay for it.

Bottom line A+

Will buy additional courses. We are lucky to have this man, doing what he does.
