JamSync Hosted Nashville’s AES Meeting: MP3 and DRE S777 PDF Print E-mail
Written by K. K. Proffitt   
Thursday, 01 July 1999

JamSync hosted the Nashville AES chapter’s final meeting of the season. They served the members the best barbecue this side of heaven and one of the best meetings of the year.

JamSync’s Chief Engineer, KK Proffitt led the discussions and demonstrations of MP3 coding. She encoded a song at several different data rates on the Mac and her partner, Joel Silverman, encoded the same song on the NT system. They played them back in sync so the members could compare the files against the original and the Audio Catalyst (Mac) and Music Match (PC) versions.

Everyone could tell the difference, but the quality level at 128 kbs and higher was much better than cassette and FM radio. Paul Schatzkin, president of songs.com, demonstrated the RIO portable MP3 player and talked about using streaming audio technologies in marketing.

Sony sent a pre-production model of their Sony DRE-S777 Sampling Reverb. Proffitt demonstrated it on her 64-track surround mix of Next Time (written and performed by Proffitt). The sound quality of the convolved reverb was very different from the modeling reverbs that are typically used.
