With just a month to go, the 126th AES Convention—held May 7 to 10, 2009, at the MOC Center in Munich, Germany—is shaping up to be one of the best European AES shows in years. And with the Euro hovering around the $130 mark (nearly 25-percent less than the rate a year ago) and plenty of affordable hotel rooms in Munich, this AES offers an excellent opportunity for overseas visitors.

In response to exhibitor requests, this AES will offer a three-day exhibition with a four-day technical program, a format that proved popular with show goers at the recent AES in San Francisco. The convention team has planned an extensive convention program with 19 paper and 11 poster sessions, 21 workshops, 11 tutorials and 12 technical tours combining first-hand information from the latest research and insights into the more practical aspects.

Chairman Martin Wöhr was enthusiastic about the event. “Although the market is definitively suffering from the world financial situation, the pro audio business is still driven by some hot topics.” Among these include programs on 5.1 High Profile Mixing; Mixing Sports in 5.1; Mastering for Multiple Formats; Audio for Games and Interactive Media; and Audio over IP, in addition the classical topics of broadcasting, recording, coding, signal processing, room acoustics and microphone and loudspeaker technology.

Besides the always-popular exhibition hall (open May 8 to 10), another highlight of the 126th AES will be a two-day live sound workshop on Live Sound. Organized in co-operation with Sennheiser, Yamaha, D&B, and Neumann & Müller, this seminar takes place on the last two days of the show in a large, separate atrium that offers the opportunity to use a large P.A. system for live demonstrations.

With this program, AES Munich once again lets audio professionals stay in touch with the latest developments in the field, making it a must for anyone serious about audio.
