Eddie Veale confirmed as guest speaker for SoundPro 2013

Eddie Veale, pioneer of the UK’s first professional home recording studio, will talk about his long and varied career in sound at SoundPro 2013.

As a guest speaker at the popular annual event – scheduled for Tuesday September 24th at Pinewood Studios – Veale will be on hand to share his wealth of industry knowledge, which stretches back to the 1960s.

After working on noise control in passenger aircraft for De Havilland, followed by a spell at Advision, Veale had a chance encounter with John Lennon, which resulted in him designing and creating the country’s first professional home recording studio at Tittenhurst Park.

Today, as principal of Stevenage-based Veale Associates, Veale is known for being one of the UK’s most influential studio designers, responsible for the private studios of George Harrison, Gus Dudgeon, Eric Clapton, and Mike Oldfield, as well as studios at Sarm, The Mill, Roundhouse, Dean Street, Trident, DeccaRecords, GMG Radio, Virgin, Channel 4, and Carlton TV.

Veale was also recognised for his considerable contribution to the world of audio with a Sound Fellowship from the Association of Professional Recording Services (APRS), and is a member of the Audio Pro International Advisory Board.

SoundPro 2013 is coordinated by the AMPS, APRS and IPS.
