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.
