MPG panel: does pro-audio provide the right tools?

At the upcoming Music Production Show in London the Music Producers Guild, in conjunction with the MPG Awards (have you voted for the Studio of the Year Award yet?) , will be presenting a seminar entitled ‘Creative Music Production – Are We Getting The Tools We Need?’   The panel, taking place at 11:30 on 24 November, will discuss whether current pro-audio technology adequately provides the tools sought after by recording engineers.   Moderating the panel is producer and MPG member Tony Platt (pictured): “With the ‘studio’ environment increasingly becoming a hybrid of hardware and software, virtual and tangible, in and out of the box – we pose the question of whether the gear we are being offered is providing the tools we actually want,” he said.   “Are there too many versions of the same thing? Does it work the way we want to operate? Are the interfaces intuitive? These are issues that really matter to recording professionals and we felt it was about time we debated them.”   Joining Platt will be pro-audio representatives Stefan Pope (KMR) and Any Bensley (Source Distribution), joined by Emre Ramazanoglu and Tom Morris, two of the UK’s hottest young producer/engineers.   Anyone wishing to attend this seminar is encouraged to submit their questions in advance to Tony Platt via email at tonyplatt@mpg.org.uk   The Music Production show takes place on 23 and 24 November at the Emirates Stadium, London.    www.mpg.org.uk www.mpgawards.com www.musicproductionshow.co.uk
