Looking back at pro audio's pioneers: Genius!3 is out now

Publish date:

Brought to you by the makers of PSNEurope, the third edition of Genius!, looking back at the industry's technological innovators, is out now.

Featuring interviews with Audio-Technica's Fumio Kamikura - the man behind dual-companding technology, which processes bass and treble separately on microphones - Jackie Green, who developed the wireless UWB microphone and film SFX maestro Alan Splet, the magazine honours the geniuses who have paved the way for technological developments in pro audio over the past 100 years.

Editor Daniel Gumble commented: "From the technical wizards transforming the world of touring and recording, through to the producers daring to push the boundaries of possibility in the studio or on the live stage, we have endeavoured to delve inside the minds of just some of those that have carried, and continue to carry, the industry forward.

"There can be a tendency to look back at the work of heroes gone - and it's only correct that it's rightfully recognised," he continued. 'But it's equally important to recognise the excellent work that is still being carried out in the here and now. And this is certainly what we have sought to do within these pages."
