Hi-res computer audio and hybrid mixing are among the topics to be discussed during the Master Class and Tutorial sessions at AES 129, which takes place in San Francisco next week.
The Master Class programme includes: High Resolution Computer Audio, presented by Keith O. Johnson; Hybrid Mixing: A Step-By-Step Class on Mixing the All-American Rejects’ Hit Single, Gives You Hell, by Eric Valentine; Perception and Subjective Evaluation of Audio Signals, to be delivered by David Griesinger; and an examination of audio DSP programming by Peter Eastty.
The Tutorial schedule, meanwhile, features: Networking for Audio Applications, presented by Kevin Gross; iPhone Sound Design, with Jeff Essex; the iPod Generation, with Ian Corbett; ImmersAV Infinite-Channel Surround Sound with HD Video, presented by Robert B. Schulein; a study of equalisation with Alex U. Case; and advice on managing tinnitus as a working audio professional, offered by Neil Cherian.
Other tutorial topics will include damping low-frequency acoustics, spatial audio reproduction and comparative listening.
“In the chain of events which comprise the 129th AES Convention, Master Class and Tutorial sessions are two of the most significant links,” said Convention co-chair Jim McTigue. “Tutorials provide introductory-level insights into topics with a broad appeal. Master Classes engage senior industry members in discussions on significant technical issues. Master Class/Tutorial co-chairs Conrad Cooke and Vene Garcia [pictured] have coordinated a particularly relevant programme for this year’s event.”
