'Keeping digital music files safe' is the focus of a Prolight + Sound/Musikmesse panel hosted by the Music Producers Guild (MPG).
Producers Tony Platt, Stevan Krakovic (pictured) and Gareth Jones will speak on taking proper care of recordings and session information, “especially when an entire album’s worth of creativity can now be contained on one memory stick”.
"In the days of analogue recording, the tape box and track sheet logged all the important information,” says Krakovic. "In this new digital age [however], we have become very casual. Too many sessions are badly labelled, and too much information goes unreported.
"We really need to up our game and get more professional. Our panel aims to discuss this and identify ways in which the situation can be improved."
The panel will take place on Friday 17 April at the VdT Academy at Room Esprit (next to hall 9.1). An MPG Speakeasy event will also take place at 7pm on Thursday 16 April in Freiraum II at the 25hours Hotel by Levi’s, Niddastraße 25.
