A new group is being formed within AES to provide a forum for professionals, researchers and innovators to discuss developments and requirements related to mastering audio.

It is the intention of the group to give a platform for the mastering community to discuss, guide and take part in the changes afoot in the industry. To take an active, leading and inclusive approach to the developments ahead.

Given the ever-changing requirements placed upon the mastering engineer, the group intends to expose high quality, high resolution audio outcomes. This is not to exclude other valid forms of music delivery but to promote and support a greater passion for listening.

If you are interested in working with the group, proposing a workshop event, or a product appraisal event in 2019, please contact mastering@aes-uk.org.

AES Mastering Group foci:
● Promotion of good practice in audio analysis and comparative evaluation of audio/processing.
● Expose high quality audio delivery to a wide audience.
● Promote and support technical standards in high quality playback models and delivery systems
● UK mastering focused events
● bi-annual AES UK Mastering Conference (first conference 21-23 September 2018, London – www.aesmasteringgroup.org)

The AES UK Section is working on the HeForShe campaign to address gender inequality within the audio industry and increase the representation of female and non-binary audio engineers.

As part of the campaign we are pleased to announce the sponsorship of 2 HeForShe tickets to this year’s AES Mastering Conference.  The tickets include full access to the conference plus lunch for both days and a wine reception on the 22nd. These HeForShe tickets are available to female and non-binary students or professionals who are seeking a career as a mastering engineer, or in an affiliated industry. If you are interested in applying please send a short statement (maximum 400 words) on why you feel attending this event will benefit your career to info@aes-uk.org by the 31st July.
