Console Design: Analogue to Digital in 101 Steps
While the purpose of the humble mixing console has remained unchanged, its evolution over the past 40+ years has altered the way we interact with it and ultimately mix our music. This talk provides a brief overview of some of the technological advances in console design over recent years, using as an example some of the features incorporated into SSL's Live production consoles.
The lecture evening will be followed by a Q&A panel.
Dolby Europe LTD have generously offered food and drinks on the evening and a few example trailers of the Dolby Atmos audio system and the theatre's new cutting-edge laser projector will be demonstrated.
The AES Christmas lectures are always very popular, so if you register to take part but can not make the evening please de-register yourself from the event to allow someone else to go. This is a members only event and your membership will be checked prior to the event.
