Prism Sound announces that Acoustic Geometry will take part in its special Mic to Monitor educational event, which runs during the last day of the 139th AES Convention in New York.
Mic to Monitor incorporates a series of seminars that aim to dispel the many myths surrounding the recording process.
They also answer questions such as what makes great gear ‘great’, what does it take to become a successful audio engineer, and how do professionals tackle different aspects of their productions to create hit records?
Prism Sound is hosting Mic to Monitor at the Jacob Javits Center on November 1st 2015 as part of the AES’s Project Studio Expo.
Acoustic Geometry is a company that offers acoustic products for a wide range of professional audio, residential and business applications.
At Mic to Monitor, the company will be represented by John Calder, director of retail sales. Calder will discuss some of the myths surrounding room acoustics, for both in-room treatments and soundproofing, and will offer practical ‘fixes’ for the most vexing room-sound problems encountered in recording and listening. Calder will also discuss how the geometry of rooms in which mics and monitors are utilized greatly affects both ecorded and monitored sound.
Other speakers lined up for this unique event include Ian Dennis, Prism Sound’s technical director; Leif Mases, founder of Maselec and Ben Lilly, technical sales and applications engineer at ATC Loudspeakers.
There will also be a special presentation by Grammy-nominated producer, engineer and musician Steve Greenwell who has contributed his skills to over 11 million units worldwide. Among the many artists he has worked with are Joss Stone, Diane Birth, Andy Grammer and James Maddock. He has also played a pivotal role in the recording of such diverse talents as Ultraviolet Sound, Susan Cagle and Arrested Development.
Mic to Monitor at AES will take place in the 200-seater Project Studio Expo, which is located on the show floor next to the exhibits and is open to the public. The seminars last approximately 45 minutes and are free to attend. They will be delivered via headphones so that show floor noise doesn’t interfere with the seminar experience. There will also be opportunities to ask questions and demo recording equipment.
Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
