A new offering from MPSE, Sound Advice is a series of technical demonstrations from vendors that support the craft of sound. They are designed to provide MPSE members with the chance to learn about new and interesting sound technologies. Other Sound Advice events will feature panel discussions with sound artists discussing hot industry topics or the production of soundtracks for specific projects. The events will encompass features, television, gaming and animation.
“We are creating opportunities for members to learn about different areas of sound and improve their skills and expertise,” says MPSE President Tom McCarthy. “We also want our members to have input on new technologies before they are released.”
