135th Audio Engineering Society Convention to Feature FREE Knowledge Center Presentations
For Release: October 16, 2013
— At TheKnowledge Center, attendees will be treated to “information-rich” seminars and presentations on a wide variety of subjects and will include product information, demonstrations, product training, general applications training and more —
New York, NY — The upcoming 135th Audio Engineering Society Convention (Thursday, October 17, through Sunday, October 20, 2013, at the Javits Center in New York City) serves many functions to its attendees, but perhaps first and foremost it is where the broad worldwide audio community comes together to share knowledge and promote a healthy evolving industry. To that end, The Knowledge Center is a symposium where companies will share information on essentially any audio subject, including product debuts and information, demonstrations, product training and general applications training.
Knowledge Center events take place in Room 1E03 and include:
Friday, October 18, 11 am to 12:30 pm, iZotope Presents: Tips from a Pro: LIVE! Audio Woes in Music and Post Production. In a discussion led by Jonathan Wyner (Mastering Engineer, M-Works Mastering), Chris Shaw (Engineer and Producer: Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen) and Jared Bartlett (Post Production Mixer, Clean Cuts) share their stories of audio gone wrong and how they saved the take. Hear about their audio production processes and see how their perspectives, from an array of audio job titles, can be applied to your audio workflow.
Saturday, October 19, 10 am to 11 am, Hal Leonard Corporation Presents: The Musical iPad.
Thousands of music apps—designed to assist you with every aspect of your life as a musician, hobbyist, student, or educator—are available for the iPad. Thomas Rudolph and Vincent Leonard guide you step by step through the most popular and productive musical apps for the iPad, demonstrating how to apply them in your musical life.
Saturday, October 19, 11 am to 12 pm, Hal Leonard Corporation Presents: Ableton Grooves
Ableton Grooves empowers you to create realistic-sounding drum grooves using Ableton Live and the Ableton Grooves Drum Racks, specifically created by certified Ableton Live trainer and presenter Josh Bess. The concepts demonstrated by Bess become stepping-stones to a new way of thinking and creating while introducing diverse groove styles.
Saturday, October 19, 1 pm to 2 pm, iZotope Presents - Tips from a Pro: LIVE! Sound Design for Trailer Music. Chances are, you’ve heard the work of Anthony Baldino in blockbuster movie trailers (Star Trek: Into Darkness, Zero Dark Thirty) or in your favorite video games (Tom Clancy: Splinter Cell Blacklist). Touching on topics such as sample sourcing, emerging technologies, and effects processing, this presentation aims to prompt even more creativity and ingenuity in sound design for a variety of applications, from sound sourcing to composition techniques.
Saturday, October 19, 2 pm to 3 pm, CharterOak Acoustic Devices Presents: Intelligent Compression In the Analog Domain. Utilizing a unique control circuit, a totally new approach to AGC, and entirely discrete electronics, the CharterOak SCL-1 provides completely artifact-free compression. The device achieves this through waveform differentiation and integration. The SCL-1 employs a rectifier circuit that has a parabolic average charge curve. The intent of the circuit is to provide fast releases of rhythmic and staccato peaks and longer releases of legato notes within the user-established range of dynamic compression, which release to a continually changing average level or sustained music, which is determined by the parabolic charge curve of the storage capacitors. Michael Deming is the presenter.
Also as part of the Knowledge Center, on October 18, 19 and 20, at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm, Soundcraft will be holding Soundcraft MWP Si Training sessions on the Exhibition Floor, Booth T1. Join Soundcraft for hands-on training with the popular Si Expression and Si Performer series of digital audio consoles. Learn how to operate these consoles from factory expert and product specialist Tom Der, in a 90-minute training session right on the show floor. As well as surface operation, system configuration and facility integration will be discussed and demonstrated in detail; learn how to multitrack record via the latest in network technology such as Dante, MADI, and USB Firewire and how you can finally solve the master-slave issue between two consoles.
Steve Green, AES Business Development Manager, stated, "I believe The Knowledge Center is going to be a significant component of not only the 135th Convention, but also our future regional events and conventions. The Knowledge Center provides attendees current and practical information they can take home with them and incorporate in their daily work. It¹s great to have venue that allows companies and industry leaders to discuss the present and future of audio engineering technology with a commercial perspective not normally presented at the AES in such a relaxed environment.”
The Audio Engineering Society was formed in 1948 and now counts over 14,000 members throughout the U.S., Latin America, Europe, Japan and the Far East. The organization serves as the pivotal force in the exchange and dissemination of technical information for the industry. Currently, its members are affiliated with more than 75 AES professional sections and more than 95 AES student sections around the world. Section activities may include guest speakers, technical tours, demonstrations and social functions. Through local AES section events, members experience valuable opportunities for professional networking and personal growth. For additional information visit http://www.aes.org.
