Audio perception attended the 129th annual AES convention in San Francisco this month. We spent 4 days meeting with people, making new contacts, and getting a first look at some great new products. We were also there to witness the release of the much anticipated Avid Pro Tools 9. Other hits of the show were SSL's AWS console/controller, the AWS 924 and 948, and also their desktop I/O and controller, the Nucleus. In addition to seeing all of the great new products at the show, we also connected with iZotope and will now include their complete line of software products in our studio/showroom. Our clients can come in and try the plugins before they decide to purchase. Having the software in house also expands AP's tech support and teaching possibilities by allowing us to offer better support and education for our clients who use iZotope's plugins.
