A high-level pro audio think tank took place in New York City this summer to help prepare eSession (www.esession.com) for its mid-September launch. eSession founder and CEO Gina Fant-Saez, who also serves as head engineer of Austin's Blue World Studios, oversaw a presentation to a group of industry professionals and fielded their input for final site improvements. A new spin on the concept of Internet-based recording, eSession offers a sophisticated user interface to facilitate sessions and provides access to a database of world-class talent. Using eSession, Platinum artists and indie bands alike can contact and exchange A/V and financial negotiations with top-level engineers, producers and session musicians. Creation of custom tracks, mixes, remixes and final masters can be coordinated via a relatively streamlined Web process.
