AES Show Spring 2021

25. - 28.5.2021

In an isolated world, it’s more important than ever to stay on top of technology and in contact with colleagues, so Genelec is proud to be a partner in the upcoming AES Spring 2021 International Online Convention.

As well as our role as an event sponsor, members of the Genelec team will be hosting the educational sessions below, covering the principles and practicalities of immersive audio, how to achieve reliable headphone monitoring via our Aural ID technology, how to turn an acoustically challenging room at home into a high quality studio listening environment, and the decline in audio quality that is experienced by comparing current streaming platforms with original vinyl and CD source material. Additionally, we've joined forces with DJ Producer Ummet Ozcan to sponsor a facinating masterclass on sound design and synthesis.

So whether you’re an end user, researcher, educator or student, whether your interests include Studio Recording, Live Sound, Networked Audio, Broadcast & Streaming, Music Production, Post Production, Game Audio, Spatial Sound, Audio for AR/VR/XR and Product Development, the comprehensive Technical Program of the AES Show Spring 2021 International Convention is a single source solution to staying informed and staying in touch, available where you live and work.

Our sessions are as follows:

How to turn your spare room into a Control Room

25.5. at 11:00 AM CET

In this webinar, Andy Bensley and Darren Rose discuss how Andy converted an ‘echoey, fluttery’ spare room in his new house into a real world studio space.

Andy’s tiny studio – a mere 2.4m x 3m in size – will be a familiar sight to anyone who’s watched recent #GenelecProAtHome Instagram Live events. In this session, Andy explains how he gradually tackled the acoustic issues in the room, using a combination of acoustic treatment, Genelec Smart Active Monitoring and GLM calibration software to achieve a truly accurate sonic reference – without breaking the bank.

At the end of the session, Andy and Darren will be answering your questions live. If you’re an engineer or creative looking to get the most from your home studio space, this is essential viewing.

Getting Started with Immersive Audio

27.5. at 11:00 AM CET

In this live session, Markus Kahelin covers the fundamentals of immersive audio, before discussing with Eric Horstmann how to actually create an immersive monitoring system.

Markus and Eric will explain topics including hybrid sound formats, Dolby Atmos for Music, channel and object-based audio, ambisonics and VR, and also discuss the fundamental differences between in-room monitoring and headphone listening in the context of immersive audio.

After the discussion there will be a live Q&A, so please bring your questions.

Introducing Genelec Aural ID

On demand

Our R&D Director Aki Mäkivirta explains how Genelec Aural ID technology provides totally personalised and reliable headphone monitoring by modelling your own head and upper torso features to calculate your individual Head Related Transfer Function (HRTF), delivering a file to you that then can be integrated into the monitoring section of your audio workstation or processor.

In a world where headphones are a valuable and convenient complementary monitoring tool alongside in-room monitoring, Aki will explain how Aural ID provides a much more truthful and accurate headphone listening experience, with a more natural sense of space and direction.

Deceptive Tracks

25.5 at 12:00 PM CET

Genelec's Thomas Lund, Darcy Proper and Jim Austin discuss how popular music tracks on 30 year old CDs or vinyl often sound better than if they are streamed, even using one of today's high resolution providers. They consider determining factors in such hidden decline, from track versions over ripping and quality control, to the codecs used for delivery.

As well as providing technical evidence and listening examples, they'll discuss content uncertainties from the mastering and music lover’s perspectives, including the excellent music listening experience with its variabilities 300 years ago, compared to now.

Ummet Ozcan Sound Design Masterclass

25.5 at 7:00 PM CET

In this session, Ummet will be explaining why sound design is so important for a Producer, before going on to discuss how different synthesis techniques work and the types of sounds you can create with them.

As a superstar DJ Producer, sound designer, software developer, label owner and ‘scientist spinning records’, this is a fascinating insight into Ummet’s work and his tools of the trade.
