Oral History DVD: Emil Torick
AES Oral History 084: Emil Torick. Having degrees in both music and science, Emil Torick had a lifelong interest in both fields. In 1958, he embarked on a 28-year association with CBS Laboratories in Stamford, CT where he was awarded 16 U.S. patents and authored more than 60 technical articles. Torick eventually became Vice President of Audio Technology and also Director of R&D for the CBS Musical Instruments Division (Steinway, Fender, other brands). A pioneer in broadcast audio technology, Torick’s team developed the legendary CBS Audimax and Volumax line of single-band audio processors. In the 70s, his team developed the SQ matrix system for the short-lived quad record format. Active in the AES for his entire career, he has received many awards including the Distinguished Service Medal. For 25 years, he was the President of AES Educational Foundation, awarding grants for graduate study in audio engineering. While AES president in the 1977, he established the basis for AES Technical Standards now used around the world. Interviewed by Irv Joel. Edited by Harry Hirsch.
