LOS ANGELES � Music/audio production is by its nature an inherently historical and archival discipline, and the 137th Audio Engineering Society Convention, through October 12, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, sees the past come alive with the annual History Track.
AES Convention Historical Events Chair Mark Gander assembled presentations covering �The Evolution of Studio Acoustic Design,� �Audio Architects of the Nashville Sound,� Michael Petersen''s narration of Benjamin Bauer''s life (he developed the Uniphase network and the Shure Model 55 Unidyne Microphone).
In another panel, representatives from companies including Empirical Labs, Universal Audio and Great River Electronics will each profile one or more classic audio products, describing some of the methods that they use to duplicate the performance of the classic pieces.
Here are Historical Track sessions that will be held Saturday and Sunday.
