Women’s Audio Mission (WAM), a San Francisco based non-profit dedicated to the advancement of women in music production and the recording arts, will participate in the 131st AES Convention, which will be held October 20-23, 2011, at the Javits Center in New York City.
Located in booth #131, WAM will showcase Sound Channel, which offers a unique spin on audio production training that provides the first gender balanced, college-tested online training materials, created by award-winning industry experts. Sound Channel brings WAM’s successful audio curriculum to individuals (men and women alike) without the financial or geographic means to access audio education programs. Sound Channel’s interactive, self-paced training materials are available entirely online through an ever-growing library of videos and modules.
“Sound Channel’s online library of training modules thoroughly demonstrate audio production and recording concepts with audio comparisons, video and animated visual examples that make them perfect for both at home and in-classroom use,” says Terri Winston, WAM Founder and chief engineer. “We’re looking forward to connecting with potential Sound Channel users at AES, as well as other educators and engineers at the convention this year. Their feedback is an invaluable resource that helps WAM continually expand and improve Sound Channel.”
Sound Channel is now available to individuals for a small monthly subscription (ranging from $25 per month to $90 total for six months), with discounted group licensing packages available to schools. Students need only an Internet connection, browser and set of speakers or headphones to participate. No special equipment is required and the materials are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Since its initial launch last November, Sound Channel has reached more than 5,600 students in 92 countries, and colleges nationwide have begun incorporating the program into their curriculum.
Women’s Audio Mission is now scheduling one-on-one demos of Sound Channel during AES and will hold media demonstrations throughout the four-day convention. For more details, or to schedule a demo, contact Meghan@OffCentralPR.com.
