you've knocked this course out the ball park. We just replaced our old Roland M400 V Mixer in the auditorium for the Allen and Heath SQ7 and BOOM!
Your tutorial videos made the transition process so easy. I would fully recommend this coarse.
This course gives you the best information you need.
I am an SQ-6 user (House of Worship) and have been eager to get some structured instruction on the SQ line. The SQ-6 is my first digital console and my learning to this point has been very... tactical. I'd picked up just enough to run a Sunday morning but not much else.
When I saw that David was doing an SQ course I was all over it. Having first gotten acquainted with David through his 'Ultimate Live Sound School' course I was very confident this course would likewise be excellent. It was. David helped clear up many gray areas and now I feel considerably more confident supporting (and hopefully improving!) our sound.
Next, I plan on stepping into David's Compression and EQ masterclasses. Thanks for all you do, David!
