NAMM 2018: A3E to host discussion series dedicated to the future of advanced audio

The Advanced Audio + Applications Exchange will present a series of discussions dedicated to the future of advanced audio applications and new music technologies at The 2018 NAMM Show, which takes place in Anaheim, CA from 25-28 January.

The A3E Summit will feature 36 sessions, case studies and expert panel discussions delving into the developments transforming the music and audio industries, and the use of Audio + Applications in production and performance.

Session highlights from A3E’s schedule include ‘The Future of MIDI has Arrived’; ‘Artificial Intelligence: Will Machines Replace Human Musicians?’; ‘VR and AR for Musicians and Audio Developers’ and ‘Designing Custom Plug-ins for Your Production Workflow’.

"A3E is honored to be once again bringing our education programmes to The NAMM Show," said Paul Sitar, A3E show director. "NAMM’s commitment to provide world-class education to its members and as one of the world’s top tradeshows makes this a very easy decision for A3E to host two of its A3E Summits as part of NAMM’s offerings. A3E will be producing some 36 sessions covering innovation in music, technology, computer science, and manufacturing this year at the Anaheim Hilton as part of the new NAMM U Education Center."

Doug DeAngelis, A3E conference chair added: "A3E understands that a strong future for NAMM members requires a broad vision of the newest technology that is changing how music is made, as well as how products are designed and manufactured.

"Alongside the most innovative musicians and composers, the 2018 A3E Summit will showcase an array of companies, services, and products in the emerging fields of sensors, touchscreens, cloud, DSP, rapid prototyping, machine learning, wearable technology, and more. Expect a think-tank environment, where R&D executives and audio developers from the NAMM community can explore the next generation of tools and services to enhance their product lines. We anticipate a dynamic exchange of ideas and new business opportunities."
