Student Recording Critiques

Students! Come and get tips, tricks, and advice to push your skills to the next level!

The Student Recording Critiques are live, non-competitive listening sessions in which students receive feedback on their mixes from a panel of industry professionals. Students at any stage of their studies can sign up – but must have student registration for the virtual convention. The sessions will be held using Zoom, with music streamed via AudioMovers. Zoom Meeting ID’s will be posted at a later date on the AES website and social media channels. Any registered conference attendee can log in to listen to the sessions!

  • Students with tracks on a session are expected to join the meeting at least 5 minutes before the scheduled start time. If you do not join the meeting at this time you place will be given to an alternate student.
  • Participants are expected to have audio and video capabilities so they can interact with the panel, and give a brief introduction to themselves and their submission (less than 1 minute) using Zoom.
  • Student Recording Competition entrants are excluded from submitting to these sessions as the competition provides detailed feedback to students.
