Registration is now open for the inaugural AES@NAMM Pro Sound Symposium: Live & Studio, a unique education and training program from the Audio Engineering Society targeted at working professionals in the live sound, recording and performance-audio communities.

The four-day international symposium, which will be held at the 2018 NAMM Show from January 25 to 28 in Anaheim, comprises a series of Training Academies and related sessions on line-array technologies, live-sound mixing consoles, wireless systems and studio environments, in addition to tutorials on system measurement and optimization, plus a selection of technical papers in related fields. These classes will be held within the Anaheim Hilton Hotel’s NAMM U Education Center, adjacent to a new pro-audio exhibit space.   

“The Audio Engineering Society is leveraging up-to-date expert knowledge from both its members and supportive pro-audio equipment manufacturers,” said AES president David Scheirman. “This symposium will throw a creative spotlight on the application of audio science and technology to sound-system operations, along with studio workflow practices.”

Advance registration costs are $69 for a half-day session and $99 for a full-day session; prices for non-AES members are $169 and $199, respectively. Non-members are encouraged to join the Society prior to purchasing Access Passes for the symposium program, since they will receive a significant discount of $100 for each day they sign up.

The organizing committee also has named numerous symposium supporters, which for the Line Array Loudspeaker Academy comprise Adamson, Bose Professional and EAW, with more to be added soon. QSC and Yamaha are supporting the Live Mixing Console Academy – with others expected –  while Lectrosonics and Sennheiser are supporting the Entertainment Wireless Academy. Supporters for the Studios Academy, which will profile studio monitors, interfaces, DAWs, plug-ins and more in three separate studio environments, include Apogee, DigiGrid, Focal, Genelec, Meyer Sound Laboratories and Waves. 

“We're pleased to be a part of the inaugural AES@NAMM programming at The NAMM Show 2018,” sais Marc Weber, director of product and brand management with Adamson Systems Engineering. “NAMM's effort to boost the live-performance audio presence at this year's show is very encouraging. Our participation in the Line Array Loudspeaker Academy complements our dedicated focus on training and education for our users, and we're looking forward to giving NAMM Show attendees a taste of our premium, made-in-Canada loudspeaker products."   

“Bose Professional looks forward to sharing configuration and set-up details of our ShowMatch System Solutions during the AES@NAMM Symposium,” said Jeff Lange, the company’s global loudspeaker trainer. “We will be providing hands-on training for our compact line array assembly with DeltaQ™ technology, along with details of our collaboration with Powersoft's DSP and amplification platform, and a thorough explanation of our line array calculation software using AFMG's EASE Focus. I'm really looking forward to seeing rental company owners, system engineers and field technicians in Anaheim.”
