If you happen to be in the Alexandria, VA area on February 6, the Mixing With Professionals tour by Soundcraft is now taking registration for the free event. The session will focus on Soundcraft Vi Series consoles. If you already have one of these consoles, this is a great opportunity to learn more about how to use it. Or if you're in the market for a new console, you could get hands-on experience to see if you like the line from Soundcraft. Virginia isn't known for being a sunny oasis, but hopefully the weather cooperates enough for the event to be a success.
