Bob Katz To Deliver Prism Sound’s US Mic To Monitor Keynote Speech
This popular educational seminar is returning to the USA in March 2017 with a series of events for students, hobbyists and recording professionals.
Rockaway, New Jersey. February 27th 2017: Internationally acclaimed audio engineer Bob Katz will deliver the keynote address at Prism Sound’s main 2017 Mic To Monitor event in the USA.
Taking place on 28th March, 2017, at Ball State University, Indiana, this particular Mic To Monitor event will feature three separate components – a morning session just for students, a late afternoon session that will be open to everyone and an early evening session where Katz will deliver his keynote speech entitled Food for Thought: Truths Explained and Myths Exposed.
Currently President and Mastering Engineer at Digital Domain in Florida, Katz’s credits cover artists as diverse as Paquito D’Rivera, Sinead O’Connor, McCoy Tyner, Livingston Taylor, Olga Tañon and Lindsey Webster, whose Jazz album reached No. 3 in the Billboard charts.
An AES Fellow and co-chair of the AES subcommittee on Streaming Loudness, Katz is renowned as an audiophile recording engineer and has produced numerous audiophile albums using minimalist miking that have been Disc of the Month and Records to Die For in Stereophile magazine. He is also a technical innovator, having built the world’s first working model of an oversampling ADC and patented an ambience recovery algorithm, which is embodied in his K-Stereo plugin and the Weiss DNA-1 hardware processor.
“We are really delighted to have Bob on board for this Mic To Monitor event,” says Prism Sound’s Sales Director Graham Boswell. “He is hugely respected within the professional recording industry and we are thrilled that he is willing to share his knowledge and experience with a new generation of audio engineers."
Prism Sound’s Mic To Monitor seminars aim to dispel the many myths surrounding the recording process by answering those all-important questions such as what makes great gear great, what does it take to become a successful and in demand audio engineer, how do recording professionals tackle different aspects of their productions and how is a hit sound achieved?
The US 2017 tour is co-sponsored by leading manufacturers SADiE, GIK Acoustics, Audio Technica and Unity Audio, all of which will give presentations on recording techniques, audio hardware design and how to get the best from your studio. Everyone attending the US Mic To Monitor dates during March will be automatically entered into a prize draw, which features prizes totalling over $6,000 donated by the participating manufacturers.
As well as the three events at Ball State University, Prism Sound will also hold Mic To Monitor events at Webster University in Missouri on 25th March where the guest speaker will be producer Steve Nye; SAE in Chicago on 29th March where the guest speaker will be audio engineer Danny Leake; the University of Michigan on 30th March where the guest speaker is producer Collin Dupuis and Tri-C in Cleveland on 31st March where the guest speaker is audio engineer Paul Blakemore.
