Comments about Down 2 Earth Live Audio Basics DVD:
Great DVD if you don't know what a mixer and a microphone is. If you've used any kind of sound equipment, this is good for a refresher course. However, If you're already doing live sound, don't waste your money. There is not really any good info for intermediate or advanced sound guys and girls. Overall, good information to get started.
