AES 138 | Meet the sponsors: Acustica Audio

 Acustica Audio logo

Since the birth of Nebula in the summer of 2005, a dynamic collaboration was born between forward thinking developers, beta testers, audio engineers and equipment samplers from around the world. The research and development has gone through many stages and possesses innovative processes and technologies as of yet unheard of in other products or devices.

The company's goal is to provide the most authentic reproduction of sampled vintage gear and other high end hardware devices, using the revolutionary technology "V.V.K.T." (Vectorial Volterra Kernels Technology) without the negative artifacts created by current convolution technology.

After years of continous work, this creative forward thinking group has developed to a team of experts in knowing what it takes to serve the best "of both worlds" (digital & analog).

Acustica Audio are sponsoring the Student Recording Competition again, donating many of their fantastic plugins as prizes for the SRC's winners!

AES138 | Meet the Judges #13: David Josephson

AES138 | Meet the Judges #13: David Josephson

Meet David Josephson one of our honorable judges of the Student Design Competition at AES138 in Warsaw.

David Josephson studied electrical engineering at the University of  California, Berkeley, and joined the AES in 1979. After ten years working in geophysical instrumentation he founded Josephson Engineering, in Santa Cruz, California, now in its 27th year of design and manufacturing studio and stage microphones. He holds four patents with others pending. He is a member of the IEEE, the Acoustical Society of America and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. David has presented many papers, workshops and tutorials on microphones and related technologies at AES conventions and section meetings, and continues research in advanced microphone technology and sound perception. In 1996 he started and now chairs the AES Standards Committee working group on microphone characterization, and is chair of the AES Standards Committee on Acoustics. He started the AES Technical Committee on Microphones and Acoustics and now serves as its vice chair. He has served as Section member and vice chair, and as an AES Governor.

David’s standards work is an attempt to make it possible for the audio community to make informed comparisons among different brands and models of microphones, through the use of uniform performance measurements and data presentation. Some of the group’s work results in AES standards and information documents, such as the widely used AES42 standard for digital microphones. David has also been AES’s liaison with IEC on the maintenance of international standards on microphones, most recently resulting in a complete revision of the IEC microphone measurement and audio interface standards. It is a continuing effort, showing some progress over the years in developing a consensus among leading microphone manufacturers and users.

AES138 | Meet the Judges #12: Liz Teutsch

AES138 | Meet the Judges #12: Liz Teutsch

Meet Liz Teutsch, one of our honorable judges of Category 4: Audio for Visual Media of the Student Recording Competition at AES138 in Warsaw.

Hailing from the Midwestern United States, Liz Teutsch grew up in a home saturated with music, from her parents’ Beatles records to her multi-instrumentalist grandmother’s square-dance fiddling.  This early exposure led her through studies in violin, piano, cello, percussion, drum set, bass and guitar, and eventually led her to Berklee College of Music’s Boston campus where she majored in Music Production and Engineering.  Her studies in Boston led to a plethora of collaborative, creative ventures in music production, sound for visual media, and of course, teaching.

Liz feels extremely fortunate that she is now able to fuse two of her passions – music and education – at Berklee’s campus in Valencia, Spain, where she has worked and taught since 2013.   In the classroom, Teutsch works to make music technology accessible to all, recognizing that these tools can also lead to unexpected creative breakthroughs.  “There are some facets of technology that all students – soon to be professionals – must understand.  However, these technology tools can also be used creatively, and it is our students’ explorations and experimentations with them that will continue to propel the music industry forward for many years to come.”

An Associate Professor and the Assistant Director of Academic Technology, Teutsch teaches courses in music production and technology, oversees the Music Technology Minor, and advises students in the Music Production, Technology and Innovation Master's Program.  

Formerly the Director of Audio Production at Boston University's Center for Digital Imaging Arts, Liz was based in Boston for over 10 years where she worked as an educator, technician, and tracking and mix engineer for music and multimedia.

Liz is an active member of the Audio Engineering Society and is the faculty advisor of the Berklee Valencia AES Student Section.  She is a graduate of Dartmouth College and Berklee College of Music.
