As you know, we're excited to have re-recording mixer Tom Fleischman CAS as this year's CAS Career Achievement honoree. Read about Tom in preparation for his full interview, which will be included in the winter Quarterly. Speaking of interviews, in our "Meet the Mixer" column, Patrick Spain sits down with re-recording mixer Alexandra Fehrman CAS and G. John Garrett CAS interviews production sound mixer Chris Durfy CAS about his experiences moving from the US to the UK and establishing his place in the European sound industry. Chris even translates some common sound terms for us. We had fun exploring some technology in preparation of this issue. See what Devendra Cleary CAS has to say about the new Lectrosonics DSQD receiver, which is designed to receive multiple flavors of transmission from different Lectro transmitters. David Bondelevitch CAS MPSE had his students perform some real-life listening tests by putting Aston's Stealth mic up against some competitors. Wanting to improve the speaker playback accuracy of my home studio, I gave the Sonarworks Reference software a try and share my thoughts here. If you're unfamiliar, the software is designed to flatten the frequency response curve of your playback system as it reacts to your space. Also in this issue, a number of your colleagues report in from the sold out Mix presents "Sound for Film & TV" event of which CAS and MPSE are event partners. The event, now in its sixth year, always provides valuable information and insight for those of us who work in this aspect of the industry. Thanks to David Bondelevitch, Stephen Fitzmaurice CAS, Kurt Kassulke CAS, Peter Kelsey CAS, and James Ridgley CAS for the coverage. Continuing on the topic of events, Karol Urban CAS MPSE recaps the CAS co-sponsored Sound Advice Event entitled "Pathways: Journeys to our lives in Sound" that took place in NYC in August. Karol also shares some feedback on the two CAS-sponsored "Summer Screening Series" films while David Bondelevitch provides a look into this summer's CAS Membership Meeting and the 695 Casino Night. Finally, don't forget to read about the happenings of your fellow members in the "Been There Done That" and "The Lighter Side" sections.
