The first New York Audio Production Show will premiere at Madison Square Garden on January 30 to February 1, 2003. The three-day event comprises several educational activities (including a Pro Tools International Users Conference), industry leader panels and discussions, vendor workshops, user group meetings and an exhibition.

The event is designed to provide a "how to" on technical info, creative insights, the latest trends in audio production and provide audiophiles with a spectrum of current buying options. The show should attract East Coast-based sound designers, technicians, audio engineers, producers, performers, sound contractors and professionals working in sound post-production reinforcement, broadcast stations, film and video production.

Rick Friedman, president of Mindshare Ventures (producer of the event), said, "There hasn't been an event for audio pros in New York City for over a year, so we expect 3,000-plus to attend, and we believe it's a great opportunity for audiophiles to get distilled advice, objective opinions and demo the latest products at a great location--Madison Square Garden."

Chaired by Mix columnist Paul Verna, the 12 keynote sessions are open and free to all attendees. Topics include "A Case Study of Super-Audio CD Technology," "Music in Commercials: Licensing vs. Original," "How Commercial Studios Are Dealing With the Home-Recording Boom," "The Effects of Smaller, Lighter, Better and Cheaper Digital Broadcast Audio," "Sound-For-Picture," "Sound For Live Events," "The Rise of Internet Studios," "Careers in Music Production: Advice From Grammy Winners" and "Deconstructing a Hit, Fixing It in the (Re)mix."

The Pro Tools conference--chaired by Ben Kozuch, president of Future Media Concepts, a Digidesign-certified instructor--offers 13 tech sessions for those using Pro Tools 5.5 and the new 6.0 for music and post-production. The music track includes advanced music editing, MIDI tools and techniques, advanced mixing, control surfaces and surround for music. The post-production track discusses advanced file formats, advanced post editing, advanced mixing, synchronization, machine control, digital picture integration with AVoptionXL, control surfaces and surround for post.

Delegates can pre-register for one person ($350) or for two people ($650) or for all three days with a VIP pass ($825). A 15% early bird discount is available until December 13, 2002.
