New York, NY — The 135th Audio Engineering Society Convention (Thursday, October 17, through Sunday, October 20, 2013, at the Javits Center in New York City) will feature the second annual Project Studio Expo, presented in association with Sound On Sound. The Project Studio Expo will include presentations by leading industry authors, journalists and educators, including Craig Anderton, Bill Gibson, Mike Metlay, Andrea Pejrolo, Gino Robair, Hugh Robjohns, Mike Senior, Paul White and more. Additionally, Craig Anderton will also host a Question-and-Answer session on Friday with five-time GRAMMY® Award winner and renowned record producer, songwriter, musician, and entrepreneur Jimmy Jam.
AES has a long history serving the recording community, from the early days of monophonic vinyl to today's modern multichannel digital audio formats. With the rise of project studios, many home recordists may be at a loss on how to approach their tools. The Project Studio Expo brings together the top people, tools and techniques, in order that attendees can learn best practices and tricks from the pros; talk to their toolmakers; and listen, learn, and connect with their peers. Topics will range from acoustics in small spaces to microphone placement, mixing, and mastering.
Sponsored by Cerwin-Vega, Focusrite/Novation, Gibson Brands, KRK Systems, Onkyo, SAE Institute, Sennheiser, Stanton and TASCAM, the Project Studio Expo is located on the show floor next to the exhibits.
