My Little Helpers
I remember the first time I heard the term “mobile apps.” It was 2005, in the pre-smartphone era when Mix editor Tom Kenny asked me to hunt down some candidates for a feature. After much searching, and trying to imagine the potential for portable audio companion apps that in large part hadn’t yet been defined, I found there wasn’t much that was useful or mobile. Now, I don’t go a day without using one or more as a helpmate for engineering, writing, teaching or just living life.

The Future Is Now
We sacrifice a lot to be in the entertainment industry. At some point, most of us have weathered strained relationships with friends and lovers, gone for long periods of time with irregular sleep, and missed entire weeks of sunlight as if we were living at McMurdo Station in June. Yet we barely notice because we love what we do.

2014 Audio Education Directory

In each issue, Mix profiles established and up-and-coming producers, engineers and the like, but they didn’t just “fall” into their job. Each one of them followed a required course curriculum, garnering knowledge at each step of the way.

And so, Mix is gearing up to present its long-standing, annual Audio Education Guide in its November 2014 issue. Want to have your school listed in the directory, or do you need to update your current directory listing? Or maybe you want your listing to stand out in the crowd: Add an image, program description, or a logo to your listing!

Get your school in the Mix Education Guide 2014.
