Greetings Linux audio users,

This summer is a special one for the annual CCRMA summer workshops,  
the workshop series is expanded and is being held in a spectacular new 
setting at the Banff Centre for the Arts in the Canadian Rocky 

All of the workshops include significant hands-on lab components.  The 
labs will be done on Planet-CCRMA equipped
linux workstations - a great opportunity to get acquainted with linux 
audio tools while learning some useful theory and implementation 

New this summer is the Digital Audio Effects workshop taught by 
Jonathan Abel and David Berners with special guest Julius Smith.  The 
course focuses on theory and practice of simulating / implementing a 
wide range of classic analog audio effects (including compressors, 
reverbs, equalizers ...) in the digital domain.  Abel and Berners hail 
from Universal Audio and are the driving force behind UA's range of 
renowned and widely uses digital audio effect plugins.

Detailed descriptions of the courses and registration information is 
available here:

For questions please do not hesitate to contact the faculty of the
