Fits & Starts Productions announced its fourth season of audio education seminar and workshop tours. The company has scheduled a new season of road tours that will feature audio engineer and surround guru Mike Sokol.

This tour season will provide a new look at 5.1 sound with its feature on "5.1 Advanced Techniques." Students and professionals will be treated to hands-on techniques including speaker positioning, laser alignment, bass-management crossover points, level calibration and real-time 5.1 microphone techniques.

The tours will visit recording schools and music colleges, as well as AES and Recording Academy chapters coast to coast. Scheduled are six regional tours in the northeast, Midwest, Texas-Southwest, southeast, West Coast and Mountain states. Each tour visits six separate sites. Tours start September 16, 2002, and continue every four to six weeks until May 2003. Admittance is free to participating attendees.
