Past Event: Audio Treasures Unearthed From the New York Philharmonic's Archives

Audio Treasures Unearthed From the  New York Philharmonic's Archives

June 19, 2018 at 7:00 pm

Location: NYU Steinhardt, Music Tech Dept. 35 West 4th St., 6th floor

Moderated by: Robert Auld

Speaker(s): Barbara Haws, New York Philharmonic; Seth B. Winner, Audio Engineer

 Barbara Haws has been the N.Y. Philharmonic’s archivist for the past 34 years. During her tenure, four historic broadcast sets of the orchestra were produced and issued; two of them were nominated for a Grammy award. In 2012 Barbara commissioned Seth Winner to preserve a further series of live historic broadcasts, in a project which was funded by the Grammy Foundation. The first batch was done in 2014 and a second go-round has just been completed. This evening Barbara and Seth will discuss the importance of this project, as well as the intrigue involved in locating the sources to these legendary recordings.  Selected examples from the broadcasts will be played for the audience.

State-of-the-art Binaural Audio: Fundamental Concepts and Recent Tools

March 5, 2018 at 7:30 pm

Location: 35 W. 4th St. 6th floor. NYU Steinhardt, Music Tech Dept.

Speaker(s): Prof. Edgar Choueiri, Princeton University

Prof. Edgar Choueiri, Chief Scientist and Director of Princeton University’s 3D Audio and Applied Acoustics Lab, and President of Theoretica Applied Physics, will give a hands-on workshop at NYU’s Dolan Recoding Studio on the latest tools for mixing and rendering binaural 3D audio for speakers and headphones for applications ranging from recording mix enhancement to AR/VR. Using Theoretica’s industry-leading BACCH-dSP 5.0 (https://www.theoretica.us/bacch-dsp/), Prof. Choueiri will demonstrate the design and use of optimized crosstalk cancellation filters for rendering binaural  audio in true 3D over a regular stereo pair of monitors; 3D mixing and binaural content creation with complex 3D imaging using generic and individualized HRTFs; and up-to-fourth-order HOA-to-binaural rendering and 3D sound-field navigation using up to 20-speaker full dodecahedron virtual speaker system and individualized HRTFs, using a 4-th order 32-capsule HOA mic.

Past Event: Pitch Shifting Tracks That Are Already In Tune

Alex U. Case

Alex U. Case

January 9, 2018 at 7:00 pm

Location: Studio 510 (5th floor) at the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, 194 Mercer Street, New York, NY 10012

Speaker(s): Alex U. Case, Past President, AES; University of Massachusetts Lowell

Pitch shifting as an audio effect is still maturing, even though the technology was there from the beginning.  Recording at one speed but playing back at another has been the pitch shifting modus operandi across all analog formats –  cylinders, disks and tape.  Digital audio continued these time-domain techniques, exploiting sample rate differences between record and playback.  Frequency-domain pitch shifting, offering new effects possibilities, became an important part of the pop engineer’s tool kit in the late 90s. 

But what are we to make of the aesthetic?  What is the creative potential of pitch shifting?  Alex U. Case looks at several iconic examples of pitch shifting effects in pop music.  He delivers a listening-guided analysis – integrating the disciplines of music, signal processing, and psychoacoustics – that defines the full range of the effect and how it might find a place in your next project.

please note the special place and time

 

YokeyPokey VR Arcade in BROOKLYN near the Barclays Center. 

 5:30pm to 8:00pm

 

Meet other VR / Immersive enthusiasts, and see demonstrations of the first binaural microphone/headphone combo made for social media as well as new technology by Theoretica Applied Physics called BACCH4Mac. A system that allows you to mix 3D audio over loudspeakers. NO Headphones needed. This technology can speed up your workflow and help you mix for VR by actually listening to the way we hear sound naturally.

Past Event: How Power Cords Affect Audio Component Performance

How Power Cords Affect Audio Component Performance

October 17, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Location: Institute of Audio Research, 64 University Pl. btwn 10th & 11th.

Speaker(s): Michael D. Griffin, Essential Sound Products, Inc. - Rochester, MI, USA

 A widely held paradigm among many in the pro-audio community and beyond is that power cords cannot possibly affect audio component performance.  In this session we will review fundamentals of audio component power supply performance and various data that supports the conclusion, “how could changing the design of the power cord not affect audio component performance?”  Further, we’ll discuss our approach to power cable design to optimize audio component performance.

Past Event: Extending IP Audio Across WANs

Extending IP Audio Across WANs

September 12, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Location: NYU Clive Davis Institue, 194 Mercer St., Studio 510, NYC

Speaker(s): Lon Neumann, Wheatstone Corp.

 The IP model of audio transport (AoIP) provides a unique combination of features that are well suited for today’s emerging remote At-Home production model. Integrated routing, processing, mixing, and control spread across interconnected devices on an IP network can be used to build a venue-side matrix of audio and control that includes mic-ingest, local mixing, low latency IFB, and control-logic from local or remote inputs. The resultant audio streams can then be transmitted to a distant At-Home production facility via AES67 (AoIP) for synchronization with the accompanying video streams.

Come join NY AES as Lon Neumann from Wheatstone Corp. walks us through the new era of IP remote production.

Location: The Institute of Audio Research Jack Douglas Music Hall, 2nd Floor 64 University Place

Moderated by: Ron Ajemian, Owl Fiber Optics

Speaker(s): David Kuklinski, Neutrik USA

 In today’s world of audio/video technology, engineers, technicians and studio operators are finding it a daunting task to decide what cables and connectors to deploy for high speed data intensive networks. This meeting will address the most current and popular A/V connections to deploy by updating past and present Fiber Optic connectors and cables with a brief overview at wired Ethernet Category CAT 5 – CAT 8 specifications.

As data rates and speeds keep increasing in the networks used for many applications in A/V and broadcast a need to better understand these connections for optimum performance has become necessary.

David Kuklinski will talk about the latest connectors from Neutrik’s product line of OpticalCon and EtherCon connectors.

Ron Ajemian will give a brief tutorial on Fiber Optic Connectors and Cables along with an overview of the new and upcoming standard for Category CAT 8 Ethernet connections.

Q and A will follow after the presentation. All students and members are welcome, but you must RSVP via the link below.

Past Event: The State of the Art of Binaural Audio

Edgar Choueiri, Professor of Applied Physics at Princeton University

Edgar Choueiri, Professor of Applied Physics at Princeton University

March 7, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Location: Sennheiser’s new Pop-Up Store, 134 Prince Street in Manhattan

Speaker(s): Prof. Edgar Choueiri, Princeton University

As most humans have only two ears, in theory we should need only two channels/transducers to hear recorded audio in full 3D. Princeton University Professor Edgar Choueiri will describe the challenges of binaural audio through headphones and loudspeakers, recent solutions to these challenges, and the state of the art of processing and content delivery development tools for each. Choueiri will describe and demonstrate his BACCH 3D Sound technology and BACCH­dSP software. This system relies on crosstalk cancellation filters and the use of head tracking and automatic individualization for a particular listener. Headphone and loudspeaker reproduction hardware will also be discussed and demonstrated. To attend this meeting you must RSVP via the link below. (Click on "More Information") ABOUT Prof. Choueiri: Edgar Choueiri is professor of Applied Physics at Princeton University where he is Director of two research laboratories: The Electric Prolusion and Plasma Dynamics Propulsion Laboratory (where he works on advanced propulsion for deep space spacecraft), and the 3D Audio and Applied Acoustics (3D3A). He is the author of more than 200 scientific articles and publications and the recipient of numerous awards.
