I’m not a spokesperson for this organization, but I do attend and recommend that every audio engineer, producer, and manager check out what they are doing. I’m taking about the Audio Engineering Society. Any and everyone involved with audio recording or sound production is most likely members. Even new technicians are getting involved. Engineers of renown artists gather to share their experience and techniques with all who are interested. It’s a time of shared knowledge and new equipment for both analog and digital professionals. This year it’s in New York , October 16-19. It’s always a blast. Check them out and see if it’s something you might like.
