CBAA 2018: Your next studio
There are some questions that we’re asked a lot. Do I need a digital console to work with digital radio? How do I make the studio quiet? What CD player is the best? How do I cope with people who want to bring their own players? Can you recommend a brand of (microphones/speakers/headphones/watercooler)?
Sound familiar? These are all good questions, and important to think about as you design the studio. But there’s a step before this happens. Do you know what you really need? What are the pitfalls? If you’re on a limited budget, where do you start? And who can you get to do the work?
This year at CBAA we will continue our series of “tech for the non-technical” seminars to give you some starting points and advice on how to plan for a good outcome with your studio design.
During the session, we will look at some of the important decision points for the studio update
- functional, non-functional and expendable requirements
- specialist vs generalist approaches to design
- what must happen first, and what can wait
- human factors
- analogue vs digital
- sound treatment
- things you really MUST consider
- how to spot cowboy planning
- anticipating future needs
- R&D vs tried and true
- what you should expect from a vendor
Presented by John Maizels (President of Technorama): all this and more on Saturday at 1100.
