AES Launches New Project Studio Expo at 133rd Convention


The 133rd AES Convention will introduce the Project Studio Expo, featuring practical training and an exhibit area focused on leading edge project studio technology. The Project Studio Expo is scheduled for October 27-28, 2012 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center, and will feature in-depth clinics and Q&A sessions.

Developed in partnership with Sound On Sound and Electronic Musician Executive Editor Craig Anderton, the Project Studio Expo (PSE) offers the latest recording techniques, best practices, and practical tips from leaders in the recording business.

The 133rd AES Convention Project Studio Expo is open to the public; however, other AES Convention Technical Program events may require separate paid registration.

“I think we can safely say this two-day event will be a highlight of the convention,” states AES Executive Director Bob Moses. “It builds on AES’s long history of leadership in the recording industry, and addresses issues of deep importance to people working in small studios. Based on early feedback from industry pros, I’m confident we have hit a home run with this event. Anyone doing professional work in a small studio should come to listen, learn, and connect with their peers and mentors.”

In a rare joint statement co-signed by Sound On Sound Editorial Director Dave Lockwood and Editor Paul White; Craig Anderton, Executive Editor, Electronic Musician and Editor in Chief, Harmony Central; Frank Wells, Editor, Pro Sound News and the AES Daily; Sarah Jones, Editor, Electronic Musician; Tom Kenny, Editor, Mix; Strother Bullins of Pro Audio Review; and Tape Op Editor and founder, Larry Crane, and Publisher John Baccigaluppi, these industry leaders stated: “We strongly support AES in striking out in this new direction. We believe that in the years to come, the Project Studio Expo will continue to grow, and in the process, enhance the overall Convention.”
