Fresh off their SCN (Systems Contractor News) Platinum Award for Best Online Training, Allen & Heath USA is announcing the seventh semester of their weekly Mini Masterclass series. The free 25-minute classes, held online every Wednesday, feature world-class instructors discussing various features and products within the Allen & Heath ecosystem. Created in November 2020 and now totaling over 60 weeks of sessions, the Mini Masterclass sessions continue to evolve and grow based on continual feedback from the engaged masterclass community.

“It’s been a pleasure getting a chance to teach the community about audio and integration topics,” noted session instructor and Allen & Heath USA Manager, Commercial Audio, Samantha Potter. “We have a wonderful group of individuals that are excited to learn and come nearly every week. It’s a chance to show features, projects, and techniques that some people have never been exposed to. Our hope is that each person can walk away after every session with a little more knowledge”

Previous Masterclass topics have included deep dives on dLive and Avantis firmware updates, as well as workflow recommendations and little-known features, ensuring that participants can get the most out of their Allen & Heath live sound products. Many classes are also dedicated to installation topics, such as the expanding AHM series of powerful matrix mixers. Each session is followed by a Q&A, giving users the chance to have their questions answered by the experts. This innovative format was recently honored with an SCN Stellar Service Award, noted as representing exceptional service and training by the readers of Systems Contractor News magazine.

“One of the driving forces behind the Mini Masterclasses has always been student feedback,” said Allen & Heath USA Marketing Director Jeff Hawley. “A good chunk of our sessions in the past have come directly from requests for more details about technology X or protocol Y—or perhaps a deeper dive into a topic that we covered in an earlier session. Rather than our sales and marketing team figuring out what we want to teach, we listen and respond to what folks want to learn. This new semester is a perfect example of that approach in action.”

The new semester will begin on May 11th, 2022 and will feature many anticipated classes on advanced networking, DCAs, Dante integration, and more. Along with core instructors Mike Bangs and Samantha Potter, future sessions will also feature guest instructors from the industry and even special live classes from trade events such as NAMM and InfoComm.

“The Mini Masterclass series has been an incredibly fun way to connect with and tap into our most valuable resource, our users,” said Allen & Heath USA Live Sound and Touring manager Mike Bangs.
