The topic this month is: Immersive Sound Standards for the Next Generation of Home Entertainment
 
The February meeting for the AES-LA will be a joint meeting with the Hollywood chapter of SMPTE (the Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers). Please join us for a special presentation about the possible sound formats for the next generation of broadcast HDTV, ATSC 3.0 Each of the companies submitting a proposal for ATSC 3.0 will be presenting their technology; the presentations will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Steven Silva of 20th Century Fox.
 
For 20 years the standard soundtrack for home entertainment, whether broadcast HDTV, DVD, Blu Ray, digital cable or OTT (Over-The-Top internet streaming) has been 5.1 channels of digital surround sound. The Advanced Television Standards Committee has submitted a call for proposals for a sound format for the proposed ATSC 3.0 standard for broadcast HDTV. That call has been met by proposals from Dolby Laboratories, DTS, Inc. and Fraunhofer. Each of these companies will be presenting their proposed formats to the combined membership of the AES-LA and SMPTE Hollywood.
 
We hope you can join us for what is sure to be a fascinating evening as we take a look at the future of sound for home entertainment.

Please note: 
The November 2014 AES-LA monthly meeting will be held one week early, due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

The next AES-LA monthly meeting will be held Tuesday, November 18, 2014 at 8:00 PM, at the Sportsmen’s Lodge Events Center, 12833 Ventura Blvd., Studio City, CA 91604 (at the corner of Ventura Blvd. and Coldwater Canyon). Parking behind the convention center building is free, enter off of Coldwater Canyon.
 
The topic this month is "Live Sound: Practical Science and Best Practices".
 
Greg Riggs, current AES-LA Vice Chairman, will present a simple overview of common physics, acoustics, and audio principles underlying sound system design and operation and discuss practical examples of these principles at work. A short list of topics includes: the Decibel, PAG/NAG, Inverse Square Law, Ohms Law, and Objective vs Subjective Equalization.  Greg will also discuss a number of best practices for using these principles when planning and running a show.  Can you….Trace every system input to every system output? Name two minute mic placement adjustments for reducing feedback?  Explain the benefits of subtractive EQ (especially for in-ear monitor mixing)? Explain the difference between Line check vs Sound Check?  Why do sound guys/gals only count to 2?

Greg Riggs has been operating live sound systems for 20 years with an emphasis on church sound and mixing in sub-optimal spaces with suboptimal equipment. Mixing highlights include Willow Creek Church in South Barrington, IL (leading worship innovator), Living Waters of the San Fernando Valley (portable church), and currently mixing non-traditional services at Ascension Lutheran Church in Thousand Oaks.  Educational highlights include attending one of the last sessions of Synergetic Audio Concepts at the “Farm” in Indiana taught by the legendary Don Davis. Career highlights include 10 years with Shure Incorporated including extensive field research with live sound engineers, and a church sound instructor with the market development team. Greg currently manages Private Brands for Guitar Center, Inc.

Come join us for a unique insight into the processes required to prepare a motion picture soundtrack, including how the various sound elements are secured, edited and mixed to picture, plus the types of hardware used in editorial suites and dubbing stages. Our multi-member panel of editors and mixers worked on several of the films recently nominated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for Academy Awards in the categories of Sound Editing and Sound Mixing.

The panel will comprise production mixer Thomas Curley
and re-recording mixer Craig Mann, who both worked on
"Whiplash", winners of an Oscar for Sound Mixing, plus Becky Sullivan and Andrew DeCristofaro, supervising sound editors for Oscar®-nominated "Unbroken", with the possible inclusion of Gregg Rudloff, who re-recorded Oscar-nominated "American Sniper", and Gregg Landaker, who worked on Oscar-nominated "Interstellar". Additional participants may be added closer to the meeting date.

We also plan to show selected clips from the various films that received Oscar nominations in the Sound Editing and Film Mixing categories, so the panelists can describe what they were aiming to achieve during sound design and subsequent re-recording.

Meetings are free and are open to all.

The next AES-LA meeting will be Tuesday, October 28, at the Church Keyboard Center, 2295 East Foothill Blvd., Pasadena.

Come hear and learn about the most advanced digital music technology platform available in a digital organ today. The SSC (Sound System on a Chip) platform, powered by Roland’s proprietary music processor chip, can be found at the core of Roland digital pianos, drums, accordions, and now the Roland Classic, Roland Atelier and Rodgers organs.

You will hear first-hand what the SSC technology does in the Rodgers Infinity, a three-manual digital classical organ. Dr. Christoph Bull, organist at First Congregational Church Los Angeles, will perform several works that show off the vast range of what the Infinity can do. Although the proprietary nature of the SSC chip precludes a detailed technical discussion, Corey Fournier, Market Development Manager for Roland US, will talk in general terms about the musical architecture and goals of the SSC platform. And Nelson Dodge, President of Church Keyboard Center and host of this event, will do a live demonstration of the powerful real-time voicing capabilities enabled by the SSC technology.

There will be two sessions for this meeting/demo, at 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM. Seating is limited, so an RSVP is required. To RSVP, please email Section Secretary Daniel Schulz [daniel.schulz@datasat.com], indicating which session you wish to attend.

Meetings are free and are open to everyone, including students, non-members, and guests.

One of the world's largest and most active AES Sections
Introduction
The L.A. Section of the AES is one of the largest in the world, with nearly 1000 members. It is also the most active, hosting 10-11 monthly meetings and 1-2 workshops each year.

The Audio Engineering Society, now in its sixth decade, is the only professional society devoted exclusively to audio technology. Its membership of leading engineers, scientists, and other authorities has increased dramatically throughout the world, greatly boosting the society's stature and that of its members in a truly symbiotic relationship.

The AES serves its members, the industry, and the public by stimulating and facilitating advances in the constantly changing field of audio. It encourages and disseminates new developments through annual technical meetings and exhibitions of professional equipment, and through the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, the professional archival publication in the audio industry.

Section meetings are held on the last Tuesday of every month except December. Meetings are free and open to everyone, including students, non-members, and guests.
