Darcy Proper & Ralph Kessler mastering is the last stage in an audio production where the final "polish" is put on the sound and the material is melt into a format that is technically acceptable for the manufacture.
It's not only about "What makes a track sound its best"; the current trend asks for "What makes a track sound the loudest."
Ralph Kessler (Echo-Award) has invited the multiple Grammy-Award-winning mastering engineer Darcy Proper to join him in an expert dialogue in which they will attempt to dispel some of the myths that justify this "loudness quest" with some examples and an open discussion about how to reach this current state of affairs in the mastering world. They'll also talk about responsibility and customer psychology in order to preserve at least an acceptable range of "quality" parameters for the final medium.
Find us at booth 751 (Weiss Engineering)

You will find the survey under the following link: (outdated now).
The survey takes about 5 to 8 minutes to complete and does not require any prior knowledge of audio engineering! Anyone can participate. Since the survey deals with sound quality, it would be ideal if you used studio monitors or good headphones (this includes in-ear headphones) You can still take part even if you do not have any of the equipment listed above at your disposal - you also have the possibility of naming the audio system you used.
Note: Sometimes there is a tendency of trying too hard when completing a task. With a task like "spot he difference!" this can lead you tu finding differences that may not actually exist. This survey is NOT a test of your performance or hearing ability... If you cannot spot any differences or decide which example is better, feel free to say: "There are no differences!"
Thank you very much for your participation!
On top of that a logging server application is shown - useful for broadcasters who want to log and investigate several program streams over longer time periods. Also on display is the latest HDIR Creator software for getting very high resolution acoustical fingerprints from arbitrary rooms in order to build libraries for convolution reverbs. One HDIR library is implemented in the new Powerhouse from Weiss Engineering in full resolution.
Pinguin compiled a team which is in charge for the complex FOH sound design and audio service on tour.
We demonstrate the latest developments: 2 current product ranges:
1. For the first time the new software "HDIR Creator" - which is designed to create multidimensional "acoustical fingerprints" for arbitrary convolution reverb engines, so called "High Definition Impulse Responses" - exports to a 75- 150 channel HDIR for the dedicated DSP hardware Powerhouse, specially made by Weiss Engineering for running 25 channels of convolution reverb with ultra low latency. "Natural Surround Imaging" in real time is only one of the applications beneath natural reverberation for up to 8 decorrelated channels.
2. The well established PC software "Pinguin Audio Meter" which turns any old or new Windows PC into a swiss knife consisting of all standard metering tools an audio engineer in CD/DVD mastering or broadcasting needs. Especially the surround version has a bunch of new loudness methods which are under consideration for coming standards or recommendations (Germanies IRT, ITU et.al.). For Details see also the loudness tutorial saturday afternoon.
