New York - Aug 29, 2011 - The Audio Engineering Society has announced the workshops and tutorials topics for the upcoming convention.

One workshop of note for radio is the workshop entitled Audio Asset Restoration – Pound of Cure or Ounce of Prevention. Chaired by Ed Outwater, panelists Chuck Ainlay (engineer/producer), Jeff Anthony (Iron Mountain Entertainment Services), Bob Ludwig (mastering engineer) will discuss proper ways of archiving entertainment assets beyond safely storing tapes and hard drives. The panel will review procedures for rescuing improperly archived assets.

A tutorial of interest to radio includes MP3 Can Sound Good. Presenters Schuyler Quackenbush and Thomas Sporer will provide a brief history of MP3 coding and a discussion of how MP3 is perceived in the audio community. The panel will suggest ways to develop robust methods to characterize audio quality, such as double-blind tests and appropriately trained listeners. Examples of several subjective tests of audio codecs will be presented.

Other workshop and tutorial topics include:

  • The Mobile Generation of Music Creation and Production
