With the rapid dominance of digital delivery mediums for audio, traditional physical media and their associated standards are losing relevance. Today's audio mastering engineer is expected to provide an appropriate format for any of their client's expanding uses. The ability to do so properly is affected by the preceding production and mixing processes, as well as an understanding of what follows. This workshop will focus on detailing newer audio delivery formats and the typical processes that a digital file goes through on its way through to the end-consumer. The intention is to provide the know-how to ensure that one is not technically compromising the client's music on the way to providing for various lower and higher-resolution releases (e.g., Mastered for iTunes, HD Tracks, etc.).
