    Espisode #301 – Winter NAMM 2020 Overview

    Espisode #301 – Winter NAMM 2020 Overview

    This week on the podcast I take a quick look at the recent Winter NAMM 2020 exhibition that just finished in Anaheim.







    NAMM was certainly different this year as it felt renewed and actually had its first buzz-worthy product in a long time.







    During this week’s episode I’ll take a look at:







    * the mood of the show and how it was different from previous years* the product mix and how audio now leans towards sound reinforcement* some noteworthy new products, especially Universal Audio’s LUNA recording system* the very cool AES Academy that went on in conjunction with the show* some of the cool programs I was part of* and much more







    It’s short but to the point and I think will give you a perspective on Winter NAMM 2020 that you won’t get anywhere else.
