AES has a long history serving the recording community, from the early days of monophonic vinyl to today's modern multichannel digital audio formats. With the rise of project studios and vast sea of equipment and platforms surrounding it, many home recordists may be at a loss on how to approach the technology. The Project Studio Expo brings together the top people, tools and techniques, in order that attendees can learn best practices and tricks from the pros and learn from and connect with their peers.

“The Project Studio Expo is AES’s response to a music production and recording business that has migrated from the traditional big commercial studios to the plethora of diverse environments that audio is being produced in today,” stated Bob Moses, AES Executive Director. “Audio professionals need focused and competent training on a huge range of skills to run their business today, and AES is here to provide a foundation for that training."
