New York, NY (August 17, 2015)—The days of the big studios are gone, but today’s era of the modern project studio has brought with it a wealth of opportunities. Exploring them at every level will be this year’s Project Studio Expo, showcased once again at the Audio Engineering Society Convention, October 30, 31, and November 1 at the PSE Stage on the Exhibition floor. The free expo, open to all AES139 attendees with either a FREE Exhibits-Plus or Premium All Access badge, is specifically targeted for those working in personal and project studio environments.
This latest edition, presented in association with Sound On Sound and sponsors Genelec, Neumann and Prism Sound, offers attendees an ideal environment to listen, learn and connect with their peers, while bringing together the latest tools, techniques and experts in audio engineering and production. This year’s presenters on the PSE Stage for days one and two will include respected industry veterans Craig Anderton, Larry Crane, Fab Dupont, Brian Jackson, Manhattan Producers Alliance, Hugh Robjohns, Mike Senior, John Storyk and Paul White. Topics cover a wide range of interesting and relevant topics, from “Making the Most of Your Project Studio Purchasing Budget,” “The Five Most Common Project Studio Recording Mistakes,” “Personal Networking for the Audio Professional,” “Outside the Box: Alternative Outlets for Your Music,” and “Building and Developing a Career,” to more technical issues including “Levels, Headroom, and Loudness,” “The REAL Skills You Need to Record Professionally,” “Mixing an Ensemble Recording,” and more.
On the third day of the Project Studio Expo, November 1, premier sponsor Prism Sound will take over the PSE Stage to present its “Mic to Monitor” series of educational seminars and workshops. Targeted at all levels of music production and engineering attendees, Mic to Monitor aims to dispel many myths surrounding the recording process. The events answer all-important questions, such as what makes great gear “great,” what it takes to become a successful and in-demand audio engineer, how recording professionals tackle different aspects of their productions, and how a hit sound is achieved. Each seminar features presentations from recording professionals, with audience Q&A, and an opportunity to demo and win recording equipment.
“Our Project Studio Expo events have really added a new dimension to the AES Exhibition floor over the past few Conventions,“ stated Bob Moses, AES Executive Director. “Attendees can learn fundamentals and tricks of the trade from industry masters, in a forum that is not available anywhere else. Our NY team and Sound On Sound have upped the game yet again, and we invite everyone to come to one of these sessions and see what the buzz is about.”
