Debunking Audio Myths

*Due to unforseen circumstances, this Discussion has been canceled and will not be streamed.

From honest misunderstandings to deliberate misinformation, there are a lot of ways to get confused about music production and audio topics. This causes people to spend money on things that don’t work or record and produce in ways that either don’t improve the results or actually degrade them.

On this panel we’ll talk with experts in digital audio, education and music production and try to bring some clarity to some of the most common mix-ups. We’ll also explore reasons why some of these myths are so pervasive.
