Audio-Technica has made available online the "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions the company recently hosted at the 135th AES Convention in New York, NY. Sessions took place on Friday, October 18, and Saturday, October 19, at A-T's exhibition booth on the convention floor.
The archived sessions include discussions with Joel Singer, GRAMMY Award-winning engineer/mixer, co-founder and chief engineer of Music Mix Mobile; Jackie Green, VP R&D/Engineering at Audio-Technica; Frank Filipetti, GRAMMY Award-winning music producer, engineer and mixer (video posted above); Richie Castellano, musician and YouTube sensation; Richard Chycki, mixer, engineer and producer; Carl Tatz, TEC Award-nominated recording studio designer; Frank Wells, then-current President of AES; and Jimmy Douglass, GRAMMY Award-winning recording engineer/record producer.
"Ask Me Anything" questions were submitted by individuals present at AES booth 2723, online at www.livestream.com, and by Twitter #ATliveAES – and then fed to the presenters through a moderator during the 30-minute Q&A sessions.
Gary Boss, Audio-Technica Marketing Director, told us, "We were extremely happy with the AMA sessions in the A-T booth at the AES show this year. Not only was this a unique opportunity for both attendees at the show and those at home to ask insightful questions, but the content will be archived for a whole new audience to benefit from all of our presenters' wisdom and insights. There were laughs, thought provoking answers and a few uncomfortable moments. Exactly the kind of scenario where we get to see the true genius behind our guests and understand why they are at the tops of their respective fields."
