Malaysia: As part of its ethos, GECKO MUSIC is committed to sharing knowledge and techniques about sound and its characteristics to the industry sectors that it serves. As part of this program, GECKO’s founder and Director of R&D, Daniel Foo conducted the first Live Session for Live Sound majors on 13th January, in the Wesley Methodist Church, Malacca. Aimed at sound engineers and designers working in the worship field, the session covered the subject of “Hard Room Acoustics” and was attended by Dr. Fong Pok San, Eugene Pang, Gideon Chan, and Victor Tee.
The group learnt about the fundamentals of acoustics – the way sound interacts with different environments, and learn in detail the way GECKO® C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® WaveGuide and PreAmp Audiophile Technology adapt and being deployed in different acoustics venues. Daniel Foo stated that their objective was to teach and share the know-how on audio topics as this is technical knowledge that he believes should be shared. “In today’s session, Live Sound majors witnessed how audiophile reproductions were brought to live settings, and how the GECKO® C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® WaveGuide and PreAmp Audiophile Technology cancels off unwanted bounce, and how it creates a large balanced, noise-free (no hums, buzzes, hisses), equal-volume sweet spot throughout the sanctuary’s ‘hard room’ acoustics, without acoustics treatments,” says Daniel. GECKO® Audio Technology products that were shown and discussed include: REVELATION professional loudspeaker series, EXODUS sound mixing consoles, GENESIS power amplifier series, PASSION microphones systems, ETERNITY compressor/gate, DESTINY graphic equalizer, GALILEE power sequencer, TRUTH and OLYMPIAN cables and connectors.
