GAINESVILLE, GEORGIA – FEBRUARY 2010: Danley Sound Labs, home to legendary innovator Tom Danley and manufacturer of the world’s most faithful loudspeaker and subwoofers, welcomes respected acoustician and pro audio renaissance man Doug Jones, to the part-time role of technical consultant. Many may remember Jones from his monthly column that appeared in Live Sound International magazine.
Jones also served as the Chairman of
the Department of Audio Arts and Acoustics
at Columbia College Chicago for many years. He recently stepped down as Chair in order to spend more time consulting, but will continue teaching the next generation of audio professionals as a professor at Columbia. His new venture with Danley Sound Labs fits perfectly with his teaching responsibilities.
Jones has worked in almost every facet of pro audio for over twenty years, with a leading emphasis on analyzing and designing room acoustics, and he continues to be one of the industry’s leading acousticians. Jones is a virtuoso. He’s an expert Time Delay Spectrometry (TDS) analyst. He earned the TEF Heyser Award in 2006 and leads master classes in TDS throughout the country. In addition, he is a member of both ASA and AES and is published in IEEE Proceedings and International Computer Music Proceedings.
In his new role as technical consultant for Danley, Jones will bring his breadth and depth of knowledge, along with his gift for making challenging concepts easy to understand, to the writing of technical white papers and coordinating dealer programs. “Tom [Danley] and Jones have a great deal of mutual respect,” said Mike Hedden, president of Danley Sound Labs. “They’ve spent time together rapt in conversation about the nuances and intrigues of sound reproduction. They’re obviously birds of a feather. With Jones’ lifelong devotion, not just to understanding and implementing the principles of acoustics, but also, to communicating them to a wider audience, there is no one better suited to assist Danley Sound Labs in this new role. We’re grateful to have Doug Jones on the team.”
