Project Studio Expo, Day 3 – Sunday, November 1

Day three of the Project Studio Expo brings premier sponsor Prism Sound to the PSE stage for the latest installment of their Mic to Monitor educational events, which aim to dispel many of the myths surrounding the recording process, and to answer questions such as what makes great gear “great,” what it takes to become a successful audio engineer, and how professionals tackle different aspects of their productions to create hit records. Among the speakers presenting will be Ian Dennis, Prism Sound's Technical Director; Leif Masses, founder of Maselec; Ben Lilly, Technical Sales and Applications Engineer at ATC; and Glenn Kuras. President of Gik Acoustics.

“AES is dedicated to audio education,” says AES Executive Director, Bob Moses, “and, as the AES139 Live Sound Expo does for audio professionals working in houses of worship, theater and live music performance, the Project Studio Expo allows recording engineers to learn from many of the best minds in the business, The fact that it’s available free with an Exhibits-Plus preregistration makes the PSE nothing short of an amazing opportunity.”

The 200-seat Project Studio Expo is located on the main exhibition floor next to the exhibits and is open to all convention attendees. The presentations, which last approximately 45 minutes and are free to attend with Exhibits-Plus pre-registration, are delivered via headphones so that show floor noise doesn't interfere with the seminar experience, and to encourage opportunities for questions and interactive demonstrations.
