Austin, TX, January 24, 2018 –(– – Shaun Detmer, Director of Marketing at Touch International, will be joining the A3E Advanced Audio + Applications Exchange as a panelist during NAMM 2018 in Anaheim, California. The topic of the segment will be Advancements in Touchscreen Technology for Music Production and will focus on how product designers and manufacturers of music production equipment can integrate touch screen technology when developing their future products.

The use of touch screens has become second nature in business and communication, and is also rapidly becoming the main interface for the next generation of creative minds. With multi-touch technology becoming cheaper and more capable each year, now is the time for companies to begin innovating their cutting-edge products with the latest touch screen technology.

Shaun will be sharing the stage with a list of notable co-panelists in the music world. Jordan Rudess is the legendary keyboardist of progressive metal band, Dream Theater, and is the founder of Wizdom Music, which pushes the boundaries of technology to create expressive and exciting tools for making music. Steven Slate owns Slate Digital which produces world-class analog-modeling plugins, microphones, and interfaces, as well as Slate Media Technology, producing one of a kind professional multi-touch production consoles. Spencer Salazar is Special Faculty at the California Institute of the Arts and conducts research on computer based music expression, composition, and experience. The moderator will be Paul White, the Editor in Chief of Sound on Sound Magazine which has produced continually-expanding archives of highly informative articles that chart the impact of technology on the music production and recording processes out of the UK since it was launched in 1985.

As touch technology becomes increasingly adopted in the music industry, it will be important for companies to know what the options are, how to avoid development pitfalls, maximize performance, and ultimately produce competitive products. For companies developing a new product from the ground up, or continuing the evolution of an existing product line, this unique event presents a great opportunity to gain valuable insider perspective that can make a difference.
