AES Master Class/Tutorial Co-Chair Conrad Cooke
The Audio Engineering Society announces its lineup of Master Classes and Tutorials for the 129th Convention in San Francisco’s Moscone Center from November 4-7, 2010. “In the chain of events which comprise the 129th AES Convention, Master Class and Tutorial sessions are two of the most significant links,” says 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 have coordinated a particularly relevant program for this year’s event.”
Master Classes include "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,'" presented by Eric Valentine; "Perception and Subjective Evaluation of Audio Signals," presented by David Griesinger; and "DSP—Why So Hard?" presented by Peter Eastty.
