AES 134th Convention Student Design Competition Winners

134th AES Convention Rome 2013

The resounding success of the recently-revived Student Design Competition is a testament to the progression and growth of the AES student body.
At AES 134 in Rome, we received a number of strong entries dominated by students of the UK, Poland, and Austria. Projects encompassed many facets of hardware and software design, ranging from computer applications for DAW control to vacuum-tube circuitry to new microphone techniques, and even to power generation for energy-efficient signaling networks.
The competition was made possible by our generous sponsors. A big thank-you to Cycling '74, DSP Quattro, Cockos, Audiofile-Engineering, Focal Press, and Auralex for providing exciting prizes for our competition awardees!
