JBL is one of the biggest names in tour sound, with their VerTec Line Array systems operating in venues all over the globe. The system has won numerous awards including the coveted Mix Magazine TEC award for Sound Reinforcement Loudspeaker Technology. Conservatory students get plenty of hands- and ears-on time with JBL’s VT4888 array in their live sound classes in Cycles 2, 3, 9 and 10 and receive a manufacturer’s certification in the operation and setup of the system. The class pictured above is learning how to safely “fly” the rig at very specific angles, making sure the venue is optimally covered. The Conservatory’s live sound program prepares students for work in tour sound, audio for houses of worship and theater.
