Here's what the team behind SOUNDMIT tell us about the event.
"SOUNDMIT will host:
The best of worldwide production in the electronic musical instrument sector with special attention to small producers and the world of modular synthesizers. The section of SYNTHMEETING will be dedicated to this.
Over the past years, the makers have become a reference point in the music sector as well. There are in fact many projects started by small producers that have been transformed into successful products. A section of SOUNDMIT w ill be dedicated to them who will therefore have the possibility to meet companies interested in investing in their projects and to reach a specialized audience.
The figure of the DJ is more and more similar to that of the Producer, it’s not rare that a company which has always been connected to the world of DJs begins to produce musical instruments designed for live performance and the integration of CDJ and Vinyl.
In the setting of musical production, the importance of software is more and more incisive. DAW, Plugins and Libraries are the terms that we have learned to recognize in recent years and to associate them to hardware, so much so that companies which used to only produce hardware have often become software houses and viceversa.
Sound cards, monitors, outboard, soundproofing and furnishings for recording studios. All the universe of PRO AUDIO for those who are just beginning and sector professionals.
Following the desire to bring to Torino a 360 degree music fair, there will also be present producers of traditional and handmade musical instruments which have already agreed to participate.
A space to encourage meetings between musicians and the players of the music world which produce and distribute music.
SCHOOLS AND ACADEMIES
