Scotland’s first ever Festival of Sound launches in Edinburgh this month. On Friday 16th and Saturday 17th November, the inaugural two-day event at Teviot Row House offers a cutting-edge programme of sound-based exhibits, workshops, audio technology stalls, interactive demonstrations, and talks. Co-created by music hardware specialists Red Dog Music and audio software start-up Signum Audio, The Edinburgh Festival of Sound caters to professionals working in the audio industry as well as to hobbyists and the general public. Its organisers hope to introduce new audiences to the world of audio technology.
The North AudioTEK Forum on the Friday features talks on topics as diverse as immersive audio, recording the sound of guns, accessibility in tech, and audio used in video games, with a special talk from CD Projekt Red about their much anticipated title Cyberpunk 2077.
In the Exhibitor Zone, attendees can get exclusive deals on the latest audio hardware and software, including microphones, audio interfaces, synthesisers, and midi controllers from companies like Roland, Teenage Engineering, Akai and Krotos.
