THIS AREA IS NOT COMPLETE! You will notice a lot of areas here are very bare and just waiting for material to be added. Please send information to Troy Castelblanco with any material or links you feel will be useful to our membership.
Also, please be sure to visit the Class Archive for materials that were presented during certain classes.
Please understand that this area is designed to continually grow with the help of IATSE 122 members. Please send useful links and references to the webmaster so that they can be included into this site.

Ian Gregory has put together some audio learning materials at http://www.ians-net.co.uk/. Go there for new additions and current versions.
One of his articles is available here, about Balanced and Unbalanced Audio.
He also wrote a Windows program called "Simple Feedback Trainer" which is designed to simulate the process of 'ringing out' a sound system and train the user to recognise frequencies by ear.
Click here for SFT 2.0 (Current as of Feb, 2004), or click here to go to his website to see if there is a more current version.
