2018 145th Annual AES Convention, NYC
2018-New York City, NY marked the 145th Audio Engineering Society (AES) Convention which took place at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. AES holds two conventions per year, one stateside and one in Europe, where attendees listen to presentations, attend workshops and demo new products associated with any and all aspects of professional audio. For the music lover, this is the place where everyone from the person picking out what music is playing during your favorite television show to the person who runs the studio where your favorite artists records make sure that your listening experience is top-quality.
No matter what level of experience you have in the audio field, the collective efforts at AES have helped to shape your auditory experience through setting industry standards, popularizing audio hardware and software and continually making music more accessible.
The reason why you probably keep returning to yourfavorite set of headphones or go-to microphone is that professionals in the audio field have worked with the manufacturer to refine a product’s desired qualities, used that product over and over in commercial settings to solidify its sonic signature in popular music and then purchased it enough times and in enough bulk to drive the price down to a competitive consumer level.
From wireless earbuds to the mic in your cell phone, from guitar pedals to recording software, from live venue sound equipment to podcast recording equipment; professional audio touches us all. AES is where quality audio is imagined and first taken to market.
