Emerging technologies are impacting the way in which music is captured, packaged, and delivered to the listener. Communications and working practices are evolving, bringing new challenges and opportunities for producing a high quality final product. Technical initiatives including mastering for iTunes, high resolution playback, dynamic range control, and advances in metadata require mastering engineers to continuously modernize their methods. Additionally, the methods and systems for music delivery are evolving, with artists exploring new avenues for engaging their audience. In particular the “Album App” format has been considered with regard to high resolution audio, secure digital content, and the inclusion of album artwork and interactive features. Each of these contemporary initiatives has an impact on the way the audio is mastered and finalized.

AES Technical Council This session is presented in association with the AES Technical Committee on Recording Technology and Practices
