Press Release | TC Electronic – Loudness Authority – Audio Seminar of The Year

Press Release | TC Electronic – Loudness Authority – Audio Seminar of The Year

Audio is precious and deserves to be reproduced respectfully. In early June, some of the most respected audio authorities – including George Massenburg and Bob Katz – gather in Rome, Italy, to share their thoughts and experiences regarding mixing, mastering and broadcasting.

For ages, sound was a natural phenomenon, only existing in the exact moment it was being produced, but technology allowing for recording and reproduction of audio changed that once and for all. Now, beautiful audible moments can be captured and reproduced to enjoy at any time. However, technology can also be abused, which is rarely beneficial to the music and film-loving listener. In some cases, technology can be used in unintended and creative ways with great results, but in other cases, e.g. excessive use of compression, audio tends to suffer considerably. This seminar will touch both of these topics.
