Rockaway, NJ (February 28, 2017)—Mastering engineer Bob Katz will deliver the keynote address at Prism Sound’s Mic to Monitor event on March 28, 2017, at Ball State University in Muncie, IN.
The event will feature three separate components: a morning session just for students, a late afternoon session that will be open to everyone and an early evening session where Katz will deliver his keynote speech, Food for Thought: Truths Explained and Myths Exposed.
Currently president and mastering engineer at Digital Domain in Florida, Katz is an AES Fellow and co-chair of the AES subcommittee on streaming loudness. As a recording engineer and producer, he has produced numerous albums using minimalist miking that have been Disc of the Month and Records to Die For in Stereophile magazine. Katz also built the world’s first working model of an oversampling ADC and patented an ambience recovery algorithm, which is embodied in his K-Stereo plug-in and the Weiss DNA-1 hardware processor.
