September Inside Track Features Music Production for Emerging Audio Formats

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 Rob Toulson, who introduces some key resources on the topic of emerging audio formats. As Rob explains, music production is changing. There have never been so many diverse avenues for creating and consuming music, both artistically and technologically. The world of recorded music has exploded to incorporate hi-res, streaming, spatial audio, binaural sound, interactive music, and object-based audio. Our production tools and methods have evolved accordingly, sometimes driving new practices, and sometimes responding to innovative creative ideas.

This month's Spotlight video interview, hosted by Francis Rumsey, features Rod Selfridge talking about his paper in the July/August AES Journal, "Creating Real-Time Aeroacoustic Sound Effects Using Physically Informed Models.”
