Recording Tip From Justin Stanley


Bob Ludwig is pleased with his MMC1 Multichannel Mastering Console: "The MMC1 sounds fabulous--I've never heard a mastering console as musical as this one."

The Entertainment Technology Show-LDI 2003 will be held November 21-23, 2003, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

Features of the show include a full week of intensive workshops, hands-on training sessions and backstage tours; presentations by working professionals; and in-depth discussions on ESTA technical standards. For a detailed description of this year's conference program, go to www.ets-ldi.com.
