Register for AES London - Tech Programme Now Online

AES London 2010

The AES European Convention, to take place at the Novotel London West Convention Centre from May 22-25, announces that the technical programme and registration are now available online.

A full technical programme of sessions are planned, including nearly 200 papers and posters, tutorials, workshops and broadcast and special events – a record number. These in-depth topics to be explored will range from audio for broadcast, games, sound reinforcement, recording and post-production. The convention will be also arranged so that the exhibits and technical program sessions are close together and complement each other.

The London Exhibit Hall is enthusiastically filling fast and there are only a few exhibitor spaces left. Exhibitors from countries around the globe – from large to boutique firms – will have new products and technologies to introduce at the show.

Additional details on the exhibits, technical programme, and registration are available now on the AES website. You can reserve your hotel room using the PDF form on the website. Make sure to mention AES in any communication with the hotel. Book your room today!

Tutorial on the Importance of Mastering

AES Tutorial

The latest in our series of online tutorials is now available at

Given by Argentinian mastering expert and former VP of the Latin America region, Andres Mayo, this tutorial explains "The Growing Importance of Mastering in the Home Studio Era". Artists and producers are widely using their home studios for music production, with a better cost/benefit ratio. But they usually lack technical resources and the acoustic response of their rooms is unknown. Therefore, there is greater need for a professional mastering service in order to achieve the so-called "standard commercial quality." This tutorial presents a list of common mistakes that can be found in homemade mixes with real-life audio examples taken directly from recent mastering sessions. It also considers what can and what can’t be fixed at the mastering stage.

You can view a trailer of this presentation on YouTube.
