This eternally awesome panel will offer live, no-holds-barred critiques of real websites. Our panelists will assess design, organization, content and functionality. How does the website fit with the artist's overall online strategy, and how successfully does it achieve the artist’s goals? Our experts have worked with hundreds of songwriters and musicians (including themselves), from major label superstars to secluded basement composers. They know all about website best practices, and they’re deeply allergic to bad design, music that auto-starts, Flash widgets and unreadable fonts.

PMC & Vintage King: The Producer and Composer Session - Auro 3D® 9.1 Surround Demonstrations

PMC built an amazing 9.1 surround speaker setup with height channels, presenting the immersive 3D audio format “Auro-3D®.” It is designed along three layers of sound (surround, height and overhead ceiling), building on the single horizontal layer used in the 5.1 sound format. Auro-3D® creates a spatial sound field by adding a height layer around the audience on top of the traditional 2D surround sound system. This additional layer reveals both localized sounds and height reflections complementing the sounds that exist in the lower surround layer. Various music and movie examples will evidence how Auro-3D®'s unique vertical stereo field all around the listener will provide that extra dimension for sound design and music mixing, making Auro-3D® the ultimate true 3D Immersive Sound format for film, music and games.
