AES 129th Convention Master Class & Tutorial Programs: Increasingly Timely And Relevant


Hi Res Computer Audio, Hybrid Mixing, iPhone Sound Design & iPod Audio Artifacts

SAN FRANCISCO: “In the chain of events which comprise the 129th AES Convention, Master Class and Tutorial sessions are two of the most significant links,” declares Convention Co-Chair, Jim McTigue. “Tutorials provide introductory-level insights into topics with a broad appeal. Master Classes engage senior industry members in discussions on significant technical issues. Master Class/Tutorial Co-Chairs Conrad Cooke and Vene Garcia have coordinated a particularly relevant program for this year’s event.”



High Resolution Computer Audio: Keith O. Johnson – Computers, TVs and mobile devices are functionally merging into preferred media systems. But, their increasingly complex sonic changes may not correlate to digital accuracy or traditional analog measurement. This presentation may be helpful in the creation of high-quality systems with perceptual audio effects and advanced features that add to the computing task.

Hybrid Mixing; A Step-By-Step Class On Mixing The All-American Rejects’ Hit Single, Gives You Hell: Eric Valentine – will discuss the techniques, plug-ins, outboard gear and external summing used in the process. The session will conclude with an opportunity for participants to improve on the finished version.

Perception and Subjective Evaluation of Audio Signals: David Griesinger will focus on performance acoustics in large and small venues, and demonstrate a new neural mechanism able to detect direct sound (DS) as separate from reverberation.

DSP – Why so hard?: Peter Eastty explores why audio DSP programming is so hard when the algorithms are so simple. Many unique audio processors have been developed to address this issue, and a variety of useful general principles applicable to future DSP design will be discussed.


Networking for Audio Applications: Kevin Gross – Computer networks, e.g. Ethernet and IP, are now common means of distributing audio within a facility and over distance. Participants will be introduced to terminology, technologies, standards, design, configuration and troubleshooting concepts.

iPhone Sound Design – Lessons Learned: Jeff Essex – A comprehensive review of factors, strategies and tools for getting the best iPhone audio performance

The iPod Generation – Audio Artifacts the Consumer is Listening To: Ian Corbett -Common artifacts created by a variety of current music download and dissemination formats will be presented, analyzed and discussed along with consumer awareness (or lack thereof), and signs that “better” is on the way.

ImmersAV – “Infinite-Channel” Surround Sound with HD Video-A New Entertainment Format: Robert B. Schulein – The synergy of binaural audio and high definition video represents a significant trend. This tutorial will address the elements of creating such productions from an artistic, and technical perspective.

Equalization, Are You Getting The Most Out Of This Humble Effect? Alex U. Case- EQ becomes more intuitive with a deeper understanding of its parameters, types and technologies. This presentation offers a routine for applying EQ and strategies for its use.

Managing Tinnitus As a Working Audio Professional: Neil Cherian, MD – Significant sound exposure, with or without hearing loss, is the common risk factor for Tinnitus, which can significantly impair quality of life and, auditory perception. Methods audio professionals can use to manage Tinnitus in their careers will be discussed.


Damping Room Low-Frequency Acoustics (Passive & Active): Reza Kashani, Jim Wischmeyer

Loudspeaker and Headphones – Diagnostics of Sound Radiation: Wolfgang Klippel

Spatial Audio Reproduction – From Theory to Production: Frank Melchior

Comparative Listening – What Can We Really Hear?: Eric Valentine

Analysis and Modeling of the dbx 902 De-esser: Aaron Wishnick

Do-It-Yourself Semantic Audio: Joern Loviscach

“Tutorials and Master Classes provide an invaluable opportunity for sharing information on functionality shifts in our communal environment,” remarked Convention Co-Chair, Valerie Tyler. “Vene Garcia and Conrad Cooke have developed a masterful program designed to provide attendees with real-world solutions, and considerable food for thought. We greatly appreciate the time and energy they have devoted to this effort.”
