***March Meeting Cancelled***

COVID-19 disruptions strike again.

The AES Melbourne Section meeting for Monday night with Alex Schloessler has unfortunately been cancelled because our speaker, Alex, has had to return urgently to his home base in the Philippines as their borders are about to be closed.

We apologize for the late notice, and for the disruption.
We will advise of future meetings, and other Section activities as they are developed.

Thanks for your understanding.

October 2019 Meeting Report – Pro Tools Workflows

Exploring the Pro Tools Workflow Enhancements

Chairman Graeme Huon welcomed attendees and introduced our speaker Drew Parson, Audio Applications Specialist at AVID Australian & New Zealand. Graeme also introduced Leigh Spachic, General Manager of Innovative Music Australia, and thanked him for facilitating this presentation.

Drew reviewed a variety of new and sometimes overlooked Pro Tools features developed over the last four years to date with a focus on TV, post-production and music production workflows. In line with its policy of continuous Pro Tools updates, AVID developed many of these enhancements in direct response to customer feedback and evolving technical standards, practices and partner ecosystems.
