A tutorial seminar presented at the 124th AES Convention by two masters of the field
Find out how sound behaves in large spaces from a leading authority.
Learn about the way small rooms work with a Dutch master.
Live Sound is a major focus of the 135th AES Convention. From small room acoustics to large venues. Microphone placement techniques, networked audio distribution, mixing, troubleshooting, and many other disciplines and technology trends are explored. Many of the live sound industry's leading experts will be here sharing knowledge and the latest innovations.
Draws on the author's experience over nearly twenty years with both portable and permanent systems using two and three front referenced channels.
This paper presents new aspects of modern sound reinforcement system design which came into view because of prevalence of digital technology.
A survey tutorial of the significant developments in transduction, signal transmission, and system synthesis is presented here and discussed in historical perspective.

The committee's work is concerned with general acoustics, architectural acoustics including building acoustics and room acoustics (including measurement, design, and simulation), electroacoustic systems (including virtual reality, virtual acoustics, and signal processing), psychoacoustics and physiological acoustics, noise control, sound and vibration isolation.
The committee works to ensure that the AES membership has the opportunity to learn of relevent new transducer technology as it develops, with an emphasis on sound field generation from loudspeakers and headphones.
This document is a recommended practice for describing and specifying loudspeaker components used in professional audio and sound-reinforcement systems. These components include high-frequency drivers, high- and mid- frequency horns, low-frequency drivers, and low-frequency enclosures.
This standard describes how the measurements of loudspeaker polar radiation data shall be made and documented. This acquired data is suitable for application in room acoustic, electro-acoustic, and sound system predictions, and loudspeaker data sheets.
The importance of ‘show business’ in the show.
The philosophy behind live vs. recorded demonstration concerts.
Live sound featured large in the technical program of the 131st Convention, held in October in New York, with a series of workshops organized by Henry Cohen and Mac Kerr.
