Welcome to Production Expo 2013
PRODUCTION EXPO 2013: Welcome to our brand new online show dedicated to music producers. This special two day event is brought to you by MusicRadar in association with Future Music and Computer Music magazines.
What is an Expo?
Quite simply, an Expo is an exhibition. Instead of hosting one in a bricks and mortar building, we decided to host an online show that could reach as many of you as possible. That means you can preview lush production gear and accessories, learn new skills using our free video lessons from the world's leading experts, and read interviews with your favourite music producers all from the comfort of your own home.
About Production Expo 2013
A unique concept in the music-making industry, Production Expo 2013 covers gear (product video demos), seminars (video lessons and tuition) and artists (interviews and features). Let's break it down further so that you know what's happening and where...
Virtual booths and the Gear Channel
When you go to a music-making exhibition, you have the chance to browse booths loaded with products and accessories. Well, it's the same deal at Production Expo 2013: we have a number of virtual gear booths for you to scout out to find your next music production purchase.
Our virtual booth exhibitors include Spitfire Audio, MeldaProduction, Fractal Audio Systems, FXpansion and IK Multimedia. Just click on their respective names and you will be taken through to their content.
Free guest lessons and tutorials from the Seminar Channel
Like any great show, we want you to come away from ours with a bag of new tricks and techniques that improve your music production skills. That's why we've teamed up with the very best production schools and acadamies to bring you a raft of expert tuition.
SubBass, Point Blank and Berklee Online are all taking part in Production Expo 2013, and we will be hosting their unmissable lessons today and tomorrow. There's a whole raft of tuition from them available right now, and tomorrow will see even more so be sure to keep coming back!
