Webinar presenter Jason BlumNew York, NY (April 18, 2011)--The April 14, 2011 NewBay Media Webinar covering Windows 7 optimization for DAW applications has been archived and can viewed online by registering at http://www.media.qualitytech.com/client/new_bay/2011_0414/301472/launch.htm.
Presenter Jason Blum, both an IT and audio professional, thoroughly covers workstation optimization, from hardware to specific software settings, including considerations for working in a 64-bit architecture environment.
The ability to mix audio in the box calls for a computer that is finely tuned to that objective. A PC designed and optimized for audio ensures high-quality production output by minimizing the number of "ifs" in the equation. Today's audio pro asks more and more of his/her computer because digital audio production has ballooned to a reality where high track counts, the need for processor-intensive DSP for plug-ins, and a deadline-oriented workflow is the name of the game. Tuned, reliable, and resilient hardware is key in these workflows, but with technology progressing at a breakneck pace, keeping up with the latest bus speeds, RAM types, CPU cycles and hard drive types is a daunting task for seasoned technology workers and nearly impossible for audio professionals under deadline pressure.
This concise, one-hour webinar was conceived to provide the answers needed by audio pros working in a Windows environment. The webinar is a production of NewBay Media titles Mix, Pro Sound News and Pro Audio Review, and is moderated by Mix magazine editor Tom Kenny. Registration for the archived presentation is available until April 20.
