"CRAS hosts Sokol"
In March, engineer, author and surround sound expert Mike Sokol visited the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences in Tempe, Ariz. to lecture students on the subject of 5.1 surround audio mixing and recording. Sokol used gear from Metric Halo, Emagic, Soundfield, Millennia and M&K Professional to record and play back multichannel audio with his Apple G4 laptop.

"We have recently begun to ramp up our lecture program at the Conservatory," commented CRAS administrator Kirt Hamm. "It has become eminently obvious to us that lectures from industry heavy-hitters not only serve to educate, but to motivate our students as well. The student section of AES here at the Conservatory has become very aggressive and proactive in terms of arranging lectures, and we simply love it. There will be a lot more to come."
