AES Student Mix Critiques
These sessions are an opportunity for selected AES student members to receive feedback on their mixes from a panel of industry professionals, in a live, non-competitive setting. All AES student members (and other members allied to education) are welcome to view the events. Join us to hear mixes by other students, and get tips, tricks, and advice to push your skills to the next level! Selection procedures for each event will vary, so stay tuned to this page and AES social media pages to keep up to date on how to submit a mix for consideration. Maybe one of your mixes can be featured in a future session!
