After Belmont alumus and local Shure Microphones representative Michael Moore helped with a wireless workshop last semester, Audio Engineering Technology Lecturer Scott Munsell and a student secured a sponsorship for the upcoming Country Showcase. Munsell and Moore set up a donation for the showcase and established a long-term relationship between Belmont’s live sound program and Shure Microphones.
The partnership with Shure will include donating wireless equipment for students to use in the sound reinforcement program and gear for the upcoming Feb. 13 showcase.
The new equipment has full Dante Networking implementation, which has become the most common audio networking platform in live and permanently installed sound systems. “In my opinion, things like this are huge for the live sound program, and I intend to keep reaching out and fostering relationships with these manufacturers,” said Munsell. “It only serves to bolster our live sound program and provide better hands-on experiences for our live sound students.”
