It’s been six years since thousands of audio gearheads and enthusiasts trampled through the streets of San Francisco, attending the AES convention, hailing a taxi, dining at a great restaurant on the client’s dime, sipping a world-class bottle of wine or finding worlds of non-audio amusement right around the block. And Mix is so excited to welcome back the AES to our fair city that we’re offering numerous guides to get you through the convention maze and through town.
Inside the issue you hold in your hands, Mix is offering the annual AES New Products Guide, filled with hundreds of new products that will be unveiled at this year’s show. While you’re at the show, log on to www.mixonline.com/aes2004guide, where you’ll get the inside scoop on what to do in the City by the Bay from the Mix editors. Also, make sure you take a moment to stop by the W Hotel to check out the latest DJ and dance music production gear at the Remix Hotel, hosted by our sister publication, Remix.
Finally, there are still tickets left for the 20th Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards, Saturday, October 30, 2004, at the San Francisco Marriott. This year, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis take home the Les Paul Award, while George Lucas and Elliot Scheiner are inducted into the Hall of Fame. For tickets, contact Karen Dunn at 925/939-6149 or Karen@tecawards.org.
See you at the show — or on the streets of San Francisco!
