PMC’s Masters of Audio seminars, in exclusive partnership with the AES, will form a focal point of this year’s AES Convention in New York by giving attendees the opportunity to hear immersive sound presentations from some of the pro audio industry’s most prominent engineers and producers.
These ground-breaking events will take place during the 143rd AES Convention at the Javits Centre, which runs from October 18th – 21st 2017. The UK speaker manufacturer will host the seminars in demo room 1E06, which will have a full 9.1 monitor setup based on the company’s IB2-XBD-A monitor system supplemented with IB1S-AIII for the surround channels and reference twotwo.6 models for the height channels. The Award-winning MB3S-XBD-A monitors, launched earlier this year at NAMM, will also be on display. All these monitors will be put through their paces between seminar sessions so that AES visitors can discover for themselves why PMC monitors are so highly regarded by the audio elite.
PMC’s Masters of Audio seminar programme is now a well-established attraction at AES Conventions in the USA. Topics under discussion this year will include Spatial Audio for Multitrack Recordings, Making Your Mixes Shine, Practical Immersive Audio at Home, Modern Classical Production, Kraftwerk and Booka Shade, as well as an exciting special listening programme of 9.1 music productions and many more.
