The panelists’ collective experience spans decades and has produced hit singles and albums in rock, R&B, hip-hop, pop, jazz, and beyond. From their application of classic techniques to late-breaking revelations, this trio of hit makers will provide inside information on tracking, mixing, mastering, songwriting and getting the very best out of artists in the studio. Scheduled to participate are the following:
Jeff Jones (Eric Clapton, Wynton Marsalis, Norah Jones)
ROBOPOP (Gym Class Heroes, Maroon 5, Lana Del Ray)
Dave Tozer (John Legend, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake)
The Platinum Engineers Panel and Platinum Producers Panel create reference points at each successive AES Convention that provide the industry with a year-to-year transparent look inside the complex process of music production. “It’s a kind of living history that takes us inside not only the studio but also the artists’ minds, as they collaborate with those who are the interlocutors between art and technology,” observes Bob Moses, Executive Director of the Audio Engineering Society. “These are always great panels.”
