“The X-Factor in Audio”: What does it take for an engineer to rise to the top of his/her profession? What is the “magic” that makes a session special (and productive) for all involved? What elements combine to elevate a live concert from “a nice night out” to “a show we’ll never forget”?

No, Simon Cowell will not be making an appearance here. Instead, this workshop will feature a remarkable group of audio engineers, outstanding in their respective fields—live sound, recording, mixing, and mastering—for a wide variety of musical genres including classical, pop/rock/r&b, film, Broadway, and television.

These engineers have worked with an impressive list of artists, including: Herbie Hancock, Michel Feinstein, Nile Rodgers, Leonard Cohen, Laurie Anderson, “The Producers” cast, Mumford & Sons, Florence & The Machine, Sir Simon Rattle, Yo Yo Ma, Donald Fagen, Marcus Miller, Gwen Stefani, The Goo Goo Dolls, and dozens more.
Join these award-winning panelists as they share their life-long adventures in audio and share their tips and tricks for surviving in this challenging industry, told from their unique perspective as women in a male-dominated profession.
