The AES offers a range of resources in audio
engineering and applications. A sample of the
content relating to Acoustics and Sound
Reinforcement is highlighted here. Some content is
available only to AES members or E-Library
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.
For the first time in over 25 years, the Audio Engineering Society will host an international conference dedicated to sound reinforcement, to be held in Montreal, July 15–17, 2015. It will bring together master practitioners, developers, users, and scientists to share their knowledge, know-how, and working methods in the art and science of sound reinforcement, control, and distribution.
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.
