August Inside Track Features Sound Reinforcement

Inside Track

The AES Inside Track features expert industry curators highlighting a topic of choice, with editorial insight as well as links to related research topics, videos, and more. It's available exclusively through the AES Member Portal and is a member benefit, free to all AES members.

This month's curator is Adam Hill, chair of our Technical Committee on Acoustics and Sound Reinforcement. He introduces some key papers, presentations, standards and other resources on the topic. As Adam explains, sound reinforcement has been a key topic throughout the AES’s history — one of the first papers published in the Journal was on Sound Reinforcing Systems — discussing many still common problems with sound system design. While fundamental knowledge of the field has been mature for quite some time, there continue to be exciting boundary-pushing applications and difficult challenges regularly arising within the subject area.

This month's Spotlight video interview, hosted by Francis Rumsey, features John Desnoyers-Stewart talking about his paper on VR augmentation of a MIDI keyboard, published in the second part of our Journal special issue on related topics, June 2018.
