Hong Kong-based Max Production Ltd, one of the first adopters of Martin Audio’s MLA and MLA Compact systems in the Far East, recently underwent full technical training.
Following the recent purchase of an MLA Compact 24, both Martin Audio Regional Application Support Engineer, Chris Pyne, and Technical Training Manager, Martyn (Ferrit) Rowe arrived at Max Production’s HQ in Sha Tin district, to carry out the intensive three day training course afforded all Martin Audio MLA network partners.
The course was conducted by Ferrit and attended by ten of Max Production’s senior and junior staff as well as technicians and an interpreter from Budee, the MLA territorial distributor (in the form of Mr Jin Lei).
Chris Pyne, who conducted the introduction and initiation course, explained the content of the workshop. “The formal class room audio theory and system functions plus software and venue design studies take place over two days. The third day is dedicated to system rigging and safety, with system optimisations, listening tests and problem solving. We also do a sub bass array and system design class.”
He confirms that he will be returning in March to support Max Production with a major concert at the Asia World Arena utilising the company’s entire MLA and MLA Compact inventory.
Summing up, he says, “It was an enjoyable experience, with the Max management clearly pleased and excited by owning the first MLA system in Hong Kong. South-east Asia is proving a very strong growth area for both MLA and MLA Compact.”
