New Allen & Heath Academy Now in Session


Allen & Heath Academy Now in Session

Nationwide training and certification program offers intensive audio training classes

Introduced in February with its first classes in Van Nuys, California, Allen & Heath Academy offers attendees formal training spreading across a broad range of Allen & Heath products as well as live sound practices in general. Presented by Allen & Heath USA in cooperation with its regional network of independent sales representatives all across the country, the workshops are based around in-person academy training as well as online testing, all of which lead to official certification and AVIXA CTS RUs.

We’ve intentionally given this program some real depth in terms of its size, scope, and content,” Allen & Heath USA Marketing Manager Jeff Hawley said. “It’s all part of our company efforts to advance the entire industry’s knowledge base not only on dLive and our other trendsetting products, but on new ways of thinking about workflow and networked systems in general.”

Skilled audio professionals and legendary touring sound veterans are leading dozens of academy sessions that have already attracted hundreds of attendees this season. Notable among the group is featured presenter Michael Bangs, whose 20+ year career includes experiences as a monitor engineer and production manager for A-list acts including Aerosmith, Eric Clapton, Katy Perry, Tom Petty, Kid Rock, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. An early advocate of live digital mixing, Bangs assisted a multitude of others in making the transition from analog in the early 2000s. A pioneer in surfaceless mixing that naturally gravitated to Allen & Heath, he built a close relationship with the manufacturer and ultimately joined the company to provide support to those on the road using dLive mixing systems.

“Being part of the Allen & Heath Academy offers me the unique opportunity to meet and work with some of the brightest engineers in our industry,” Bangs said, commenting upon his role within the training initiative. “We have a lot to offer everyone with these classes beyond simple certification—this is a chance for anyone who’s serious about their work and career to truly expand their skills, learn new techniques, and strike a creative spark within themselves and among their peers.”

Beyond touring FOH and monitor engineers, consultants, integrators, house of worship production team members, and those within the rental community, all stand to gain by enrolling for academy sessions. Most sessions are free to attend. To obtain Allen & Heath Academy dates and locations as well as all other registration details, visit: http://bit.ly/allenheathacademy.

New 2020 AES Audio Education Conference


* CONFERENCE RESCHEDULED *

NEW DATES: JULY 22-24, 2021


Current global conditions make it impossible for the Audio Education Conference to proceed as planned this summer. Therefore, the full three-day conference in Tennessee will be delayed by one year. Though we must wait to meet again in person, the program of workshops, papers and special events in 2021 will be stronger and more relevant than ever. Meanwhile, we are developing plans for an online symposium, on or near the original conference dates, with a series of presentations about remote delivery of audio and music instruction. Information about this online event will be posted here and distributed through AES social media channels as the details become available.

The AES will continue to monitor the status of the Coronavirus pandemic throughout the year ahead, and we are committeed to protecting the health and safety of the communities where we live and serve by following the requirements of all relevant local, state and federal authorities. Please stay informed and review the recommendations for your own personal protection at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

New Studioszene 2020 will take place in October 




Studioszene 2020 will take place in October

Due to the current situation, Studioszene will take place on October 30th and 31st – and not on September 18th and 19th, as was originally planned! The location for the recording scene’s community event will remain XPOST in Cologne, Germany.

After Studioszene‘s successful inauguration last year, the second edition of our workshop & community platform for all recording, mixing & mastering engineers and producers will take place on October 30th and 31st 2020. The event will again be located in Cologne’s XPOST! Moreover, the first top-class lecturer, a successful mixing engineer from the USA, is already confirmed. Look forward to Studioszene 2020 and save the date!

With its first edition, Studioszene has established itself as a refreshingly lively event and new international meeting place for producers, engineers and manufacturers. Last year, products from well over 100 brands were thoroughly tested and detailed discussions were held with product specialists and developers – all on an exhibition space of almost 3,000 m2. The two-day programme was complemented by more than 50 top-class workshops and panel discussions, in which Sylvia Massy, Mick Guzauski, Peter Walsh, Nico Rebscher, Wolfgang Stach and Hans-Martin Buff – real audio industry heavyweights – spoke about recording, production and mastering.

Now the cat is out of the bag! Studioszene 2020 will take place on October 30th and 31st, again at XPOST Cologne and again with an attractive workshop programme, premium speakers and the audio industry’s top brands. Save the date!
