Tonmeistertagung 2023

8. - 11.11.2023

Organised by the Association of German Sound Engineers (vdt), Tonmeistertagung is one of Europe's leading conferences in professional audio, taking place this year on the 8th to the 11th of November at Düsseldorf’s CCD Congress Centre.

Held every two years, the event has become a key networking arena for audio professionals from a wide variety of fields, scientists, students and manufacturers. In addition to its high-calibre programme of congress, the event features a vibrant industrial fair, which can be accessed with a lower-priced day ticket of just 30 Euro. And it is at this industrial fair that we would like to invite you to meet our friendly team of experts and get hands-on with our industry-leading solutions. So, come and join us at our demo room located at stand number #62.

This year, the Genelec demo room highlight will be a stereo pair of our recently launched, highly acclaimed 5-way 8381A Adaptive Point Source Main Monitors. So, make sure to drop by for this unmissable experience! In addition to stereo, the pair of 8381As will also work as the right and left channels of a 7.1.4 immersive audio system, which is completed by models from our renowned The Ones Series. So, there’s also an opportunity to listen to and analyse immersive productions at the highest level.

We have a full, yet slightly variable, programme for each day of Tonmeistertagung, so feel free to check the schedule below and pick the best day for you. Alongside the 8381A, we will also present our new 9320A SAM Reference Controller, Aural ID version 2.0 and GLM software version 5 in detail, which are all part of our UNIO Audio Monitoring Platform. Additionally, we will also present an entirely new device – exclusively at TMT – which is an ideal bridging interface for many applications, especially in the broadcast sector, so look out for that! Finally, we’ll be welcoming several special guest speakers, who will cover a wide range of topics from room acoustics and hip-hop to sound design and the mixing of Oscar-winning film ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’.

For those with a regular Congress ticket, you’ll find a second even larger immersive system of ours, also using two 8381As in the front, in lecture room R16 for the presenters of the official lecture programme.
