Most audio engineers will tell you that accurate monitoring is a key part of any studio, but it can be tough to get it right. Room acoustics are a complex science, and some have limited success due to the size and shape of the rooms they’re operating in.

That’s why we’ve invited Swiss manufacturer PSI Audio to our Soho place – they’ve been developing speakers for 40 years (and active studio speakers for over 25 years), and they’ve just launched their new, innovative AVAA Active Bass Trap.

CEO Roger Roschnik, the top dog at PSI Audio, will be joining us on the day and Paul Mortimer, Managing Director of Emerging UK, will be there to demonstrate the new AVAA Active Bass Trap. We’ll also get a close-up look at PSI Audio Active monitors and our guests will be sharing all kinds of audio knowledge. They’ll be discussing real world challenges facing audio monitoring and the tech behind the most accurate range of monitoring products available.

We’re running two sessions so pick whichever suits you best. We’ll be laying on the obligatory free food and drinks too, so don’t miss out!

15.00/19.00 Arrival and registration.
15.30/19.30 Presentation and demonstration.
16.30/20.30 Q&A and further listening sessions in our demo suite.
