The advent of object-based audio has opened up completely new formats for consumer consumption of music. All of a sudden you don’t need to know what the configuration of the consumer’s playback system is; that will all be taken care of on their end so for the first-time immersive music has become a mainstream consumable. This is a sea change in not only the audio formats themselves, but the process of creating and mixing commercial music releases. In this Master Class, Andrew will cover not only the current state of object-based audio production, but also the triumphs and tribulations of trying to integrate an entirely new workflow into the more than hundred-year-old tradition of channel based playback for music. To be thrown into the deep end with no best practices, swiftly changing technologies and standards, and limited tools and budgets, this impacts not only the mechanical process of creating consumer content, but also the creative creation of music in the first place.

Andrew Scheps is an American mix engineer, recording engineer, record producer, and record label owner, based in Los Angeles and the United Kingdom. He received Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album for his work on Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Stadium Arcadium, Album of the Year for Adele’s 21, and Best Reggae Album for Ziggy Marley’s Fly Rasta.
