The Audio Partner Conference, hosted by Avid, returns in 2019 for an updated discussion with individuals and companies seeking to develop for the Avid audio platform and grow their businesses. Set to take place the day after NAMM 2019 in Anaheim, this is a free, all-day event that has been the go-to gathering of the Avid Audio Partner community for more than 15 years. All registered audio developers are welcome to join us for a day packed with valuable information about our roadmap, developer platforms and paths to connect with Avid customers
Prospective developers can always explore the resources available for free evaluation at the Avid Developer Portal, including the AAX and EUCON Toolkits that have been used to bring thousands of industry-leading AAX effects and virtual instruments to market and to deliver compatibility with Avid control surfaces. Avid provides continually updated documentation and support designed to help our Partners to create, test, market and sell high-quality, fully compatible products for the large and fast-growing community of users of the Avid Artist Suite of creative tools, including more than one million users of the “First” entry-level versions of Avid Pro Tools, Avid Media Composer, and Avid Sibelius. Partners have access to Avid Marketplace and Avid Link, where their products are instantly available to countless buyers and visitors. Developers can also work directly with Avid’s global Audio Solutions team to co-promote their products together with Pro Tools, Media Composer, Sibelius and VENUE.
“The Avid Developer Conference is great because you can have 1:1 conversations about your development concerns with key Avid staff. What’s even better is getting to socialize and share tips with lots of talented developers in one room.”
—Chris Santoro, Sound Toys
The Audio Partner Conference is an annual opportunity to connect with the audio developer community as we look ahead to cooperation in the coming year. It begins with a recap of the year just completed and provides a private look at our future product plans, including new software and hardware directions and improvements to our developer platform. From there, Avid will give interactive, focused presentations on the following topics, to name a few:
- Overview of the AAX and EUCON Toolkits with focus on SDK improvements and guide to working with the Developer Support organization
- Analysis of feedback from a recently conducted AAX Developer Survey
- Avid Marketplace—how to participate and reach the Avid user community
- Introducing Avid Link, the new platform to connect artists and the quickest path to the Avid Store
- Practical advice from Avid’s Solutions Managers on how to show your products to the World
- Protecting your IP and license management offerings with PACE Anti-Piracy, a sponsor of this event
- A closer look at developing for AAX DSP, the accelerated platform at the heart of Pro Tools | HDX and VENUE
- Co-marketing and social promotion together with Avid
“Each year, the Avid Partner Conference is a great way for us to stay up to date with the Avid roadmap, provide feedback and get updates on the AAX SDK, and catch up with our industry friends. I find that it’s always quite productive to meet and discuss these topics in person.”
—Tom Longabaugh, Eventide
The Audio Partner Conference has become an annual tradition after a hard-working NAMM show, giving our Audio Partner community a chance to connect with Avid product and marketing staff in person, ask technical questions that are of interest to the community, explore marketing and sales opportunities, and interact in ways only possible in an intimate group like this one. Avid looks forward to hosting this event and meeting with many of the developers who have dedicated themselves to bringing value and color to the Avid platform. The Audio Partner Conference takes place from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM in Anaheim, a few blocks from the NAMM show. Those interested in attending can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see many of you there!
