Audio post sound professionals will want to check out
the "Advanced Ideas &
Techniques in High Definition Surround Music Post Production for Film & TV"
class in which Ken Hahn, co-owner of New York post house Sync Sound, will cover
a number of critical topics. Hahn's agenda includes: how to achieve 5.1/stereo/mono
compatible mixes; the reasons for working at a fixed monitoring level; how to
achieve a mix that satisfies both client and engineer; audio post tools of the
trade; dealing with delivery specs and how they dictate workflow; and, is
louder really better?
Other Master Class topics include: The Art and Science of
Making and Playing Great Recordings; Hard Earned Design Secrets; From Rough Mix
to "Yogi"; Vintage Microphone Mystique; and Audio Interconnections.
Alan Silverman is serving as Master Class chair this year.
He is principal and mastering engineer at Arf! Mastering, a Manhattan facility
specializing in high-resolution audio.
The AES 123rd Convention will be held at New York City's
Jacob Javits Center October 5-8, 2007.
