The inaugural AES@NAMM Pro Sound Symposium: Live & Studio kicks off in a couple of weeks with a rich and varied educational program of training sessions.
The four-day international symposium from the Audio Engineering Society will be held from January 25 to 28 at the 2018 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA, and is targeted at working professionals in the live sound, recording and performance-audio communities.
“Our unique program will spotlight the application of audio science and technology to sound-system operations, along with studio workflow practices,” said AES president David Scheirman (pictured).
“We still have places available at these sessions for pro-audio professionals to come and learn from our seasoned experts. And attendance is highly affordable for AES members: Just $99 for a full-day session; $69 for a half-day session. Non-members can join the Society to receive these discounted prices."
The full programme of Training Academies and related sessions on line-array technologies, live-sound consoles, wireless systems, in-ear monitoring and studio environments, in addition to tutorials on system measurement and optimisation, can be accessed here.
Classes will be held within the Anaheim Hilton Hotel’s NAMM U Education Center, adjacent to a new pro-audio exhibit space. Several Chinese- and Spanish-language sessions on selected pro-audio topics will be curated and presented by industry experts.
