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.
