Tickets are now on sale for webinar number six. (They just keep coming!)

Connecting Up Your Audio Equipment

The next Reel Resilience webinar is open for booking!

We will cover the "How do?", "What is?" and "Can I?" of connecting audio equipment together, be it consumer or professional grade and using analogue or digital formats. There seems to be confusion over what balanced, unbalanced, mic, line, DIN and headphone levels are and can you connect equipment using these differing standards together. We will cover digital formats too.

There will be a Q & A session at the end, so please send your questions in during the webinar, or you can send them in advance to to guarantee they will be answered.
The webinar will be recorded and you will be sent a link plus the notes used in the webinar to watch it again.

Tickets are available here and we look forward to your attendance. 

Please look out for announcments about this webinar on this website and on the Reel Resilience

social media presence.
