The AES Historical Committee E-mail Reflector is a forum for discussion of the history of audio engineering, as given in its Operating Structure: "To unite persons interested in the history of audio engineering and its allied fields; and to collect, write, publish, and otherwise disseminate accurate historical information about the field of audio engineering."
To post to the reflector, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. When replying, please TRIM UNNECESSARY PARTS of the original post to conserve bandwidth and server space.
The reflector will attempt to convert HTML messages
into plain text, and it will remove and discard attachments.
For best results, please configure your email client to send ONLY plain ASCII text. If you are unsure how to do this, see instructions here.
Please do not send pictures and other binaries to the reflector. Send them by private email instead. If they are of long-term interest, please contact the HC Co-Chair, Bill Wray for possible inclusion on the HC's web site (see below).
Over time, the topic of a thread may change. WHEN IT DOES,
PLEASE UPDATE THE SUBJECT FIELD OF YOUR EMAIL TO REFLECT WHAT IS
ACTUALLY BEING DISCUSSED IN YOUR POST.
Making sure the subject fields accurately represent what is being talked about allows persons interested in those topics to find them, and those not not interested in those topics to skip them.
Archives from 2013 onward are available online. You will need to log in with your email address and password. If you don't know your password, you can visit the list's info page to retrieve it. We are working on converting earlier archives so we can post them online. In the meantime, they are available by private request to Howard Sanner, the reflector host.
The reflector began in 1999, but has not yet (2001-14) been used extensively. As time progresses, new subscribers wishing to learn the list's collective (and considerable) wisdom should consult the archives and search for relevant posts. Please avoid posting until you have determined that you have a question to ask or a point to make that has not been covered previously, and even then seriously consider contacting the original poster by private email instead of using reflector bandwidth.
Anyone wishing to distill the best posts in the archives for posting on the Historical Committee's web page (see Resources, below) should contact the HC CoChair, Bill Wray.
We do not offer a digest. Message traffic on this list is intermittent, and never very heavy.
If all else fails, send email to Howard Sanner, the reflector host.
The AES Historical Committee has a web page (http://www.aes.org/aeshc). There you will find links to other historical sites, reports on the history of audio engineering, information about active projects, communicating with the Historical Committee, and committee administration.
