Live from AES 2007 in New York

Go to for updates....

GIT'N 'R DONE: This year's AES Convention has it all, and Jim Anderson, chair, Convention Committee (left) and Chris Plunkett, deputy director, Convention Management, are two of the lead pros who made it happen.1-2-3 Ready To Roll For decades, the annual AES Convention has been the center of the pro audio world, and this year's edition upholds that tradition by looking ahead into the future. The annual gathering always brings with it new technologies, thousands of visitors, exciting panels and workshops, and more. While it may sport a retro-sounding theme in "Where Audio Comes Alive"-and it'd be fitting since the classic Frampton Comes Alive was recorded in nearby Long Island-this year's convention is unquestionably about today and tomorrow.

AES Honors Its Own Today's Audio Engineering Society was built upon the achievements of the pioneers in our industry. The awards presentation, held during today's opening ceremonies, honors audio's top innovators and practitioners-an important highlight of each AES Convention. The success of tomorrow's audio professionals is possible thanks to these honorees' considerable accomplishments.

Post Production Tools Up Every year at the AES Convention post-production professionals have an opportunity to catch up with the latest and greatest in software and hardware audio tools. As a recent straw poll of several post houses around the country suggests, even if there are no plans for a facility expansion, post shops are always on the lookout for new gear that will allow the creative talent to hone their craft and get the job done just that little bit faster and better.

Reasons To Be Cheerful Today looks to be getting busy, so I'll move quickly to what I consider to be essential Convention highlights...

Chris'Picks The opening day of the 123rd AES Convention includes a wealth of fascinating and insightful events. Like New York itself, today's special events feature something for everyone.

Wieslaw Woszczyk Reflects On AES Presidency Outgoing Audio Engineering Society president Wieslaw Woszczyk reflected on the previous year for Pro Sound News.

eSession-Born Of Necessity Necessity may be the mother of invention, but raw inventiveness is not enough to ensure that a good idea is feasible in the marketplace. For eSession (Booth 462), a convergence of opportunity with inventiveness, supported by current technology, has put online music production collaboration into the category of "idea whose time has come."
