SXSW 2012 is officially over, and the Dubspot team had a wonderful time in Austin. We held four days of free workshops, presentations, and DJ / Producer Education Sessions at the Austin Convention Center that were well received. Needless to say, it was a tremendous experience to be surrounded by people who genuinely love music, fascinated with music technology and are eager to see what’s around the corner. So, here’s a video recap of our time in Austin.
Dubspot family flew down to Austin for the South by Southwest Music Conference and Festival. Over the last 25 years, SXSW has really grown to be one of the biggest music festivals in the United States. People from all around the world travel to Austin every March to hear and get a feel for where the pulse of music, film, and interactive media technology are headed. For SXSW 2012, we again partnered with Ableton, Native Instruments, Propellerhead, iZotope, Reactable, and Livid Instruments to bring an exciting array of events. These include music production, DJing, sound design, synthesis, mixing and mastering workshops and demos via our renowned EDU Sessions. Dubspot instructors include DJ Shiftee, DJ Kiva, Martín Perna Chris Petti, Daniel Wyatt, and Pat Cupo. Full details for Dubspot EDU Sessions and workshop events at Austin Convention Center are on the flyer below. Click here for Facebook Event page.
