New York, NY - Oct 10, 2013 - At the 135th Audio Engineering Society Convention (Oct. 17 - 20, 2013, at the Javits Center in New York City), Alex U. Case, associate professor of sound recording technology at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, will kick off four straight days of tutorials demonstrating audio processing technologies and techniques. Each day's sessions will then continue with other presenters' seminars.
Prof. Case, an active member of the Audio Engineering Society and a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America with degrees in mechanical engineering, music and acoustics, is an engineer, educator and author who speaks frequently on audio and acoustics. At this year's AES Show, he's overseeing a jam-packed series of seminars that cover key issues in audio, starting at 9 a.m. each morning with tutorials on specific subjects - compression, equalization, distortion and reverb - followed by intensive workshops on the same topics, intended to reinforce that new knowledge in a highly practical manner.
Case is packaging his vast knowledge and educational skill in an immersive presentation format that will let attendees leave with a new sense of understanding and confidence in their abilities. "I chose topics that I thought I would have been most interested in early in my career," explains Case, who says the content of the tutorials are based largely on chapters of his book Sound FX. "But we wanted to take it a step further, so I added the workshops to the tutorials to create a more complete experience."
