New York, NY (March 17, 2021)—Acclaimed pro audio expert Craig Anderton will provide an eye-opening, far-reaching look into the future of pro audio when he keynotes the upcoming Pro Audio & Radio Tech Summit on April 1. Produced jointly by Mix magazine, Pro Sound News and Radio World, the event is a free one-day virtual trade show where radio and pro audio professionals can learn about new products and technology and network with colleagues and manufacturers.
Crises often lead to accelerated advancements in technology, and over the past year, the professional audio industry has been actively developing new tools and new models to support evolving demands in sound production and distribution. In his discussion, “What’s Next? New Tech for Audio Creation, Collaboration, Distribution,” noted author, composer, artist and technologist Craig Anderton will explore those changes and reveal how many of the foundations of the future—from networked systems and machine learning, to remote collaboration and blockchain payments/audience outreach—are here right now. And they’re about to become a lot bigger.
