After the last being packed to the max, WAM is excited to again team up with APRA AMCOS to present the last panel-based Music Industry Sundowner Series session for 2014:

Does sound quality matter in the digital age?

We are bringing together a panel of music industry experts to discuss audio formats, compression rates and listener perceptions. Our panel ranges from creators of the works to those who decide how those creations should be fixed onto a sound recording. The speakers also have extensive experience in the business end of pitching those recordings for a range of applications – from film to iPhone. So what exactly should you be aiming for in terms of sound quality in your next recording and how will those decisions affect its licensing prospects? Come along and get the final word from this insightful panel of experts, and all FREE for those WAM and APRA AMCOS Members that RSVP ASAP!
