For many audio mixing professionals, one of the global Audio Engineering Standards available for reference is the set of standards created by the Audio Engineering Society (AES). Audio Engineering Society had its origins in United States in the year 1948 and since then the group of Engineers affiliated with AES have developed a number of standards that have become the bible for Audio Engineering professionals.
Members and Events
There are more than 14,000 members associated with AES as on date. It has 75 professional sections and 95 student sections available for members across the globe. Through the different AES events, members get the opportunity to network with experienced audio engineers. The different AES Events that are held on a regular basis include International technical meetings, Equipment Exhibitions and conventions. During conventions, students doing research in audio mixing techniques present their research paper and get feedback from the industry experts.
Audio Engineering Standards
AES has well laid out standards in the areas of digital and analog audio engineering, acoustics, communication technology and media preservation. There is a separate AES technical council that has been entrusted with the responsibility of drafting the different AES standards. The ten different groups within AES develop standards that are pertaining to the following four audio mixing and Engineering areas. Continue reading
