Dr. AIX

Mark Waldrep, aka Dr. AIX, has been producing and engineering music for over 40 years. He learned electronics as a teenager from his HAM radio father while learning to play the guitar. Mark received the first doctorate in music composition from UCLA in 1986 for a "binaural" electronic music composition. Other advanced degrees include an MS in computer science, an MFA/MA in music, BM in music and a BA in art. As an engineer and producer, Mark has worked on projects for the Rolling Stones, 311, Tool, KISS, Blink 182, Blues Traveler, Britney Spears, the San Francisco Symphony, The Dover Quartet, Willie Nelson, Paul Williams, The Allman Brothers, Bad Company and many more. Dr. Waldrep has been an innovator when it comes to multimedia and music. He created the first enhanced CDs in the 90s, the first DVD-Videos released in the U.S., the first web-connected DVD, the first DVD-Audio title, the first music Blu-ray disc and the first 3D Music Album. Additionally, he launched the first High Definition Music Download site in 2007 called iTrax.com. A frequency speaker at audio events, author of numerous articles, Dr. Waldrep is currently writing a book on the production and reproduction of high-end music called, "High-End Audio: A Practical Guide to Production and Playback". The book should be completed in the fall of 2013.

    I’d love to come, but the distance from Denmark to LA unfortunately makes it impossible for me.

    I wish all the happy participants a very pleasant day with Mark!
    And I would love to read about it afterwards.
    Would it be possible to make some video clips from the seminar – for those, who can’t be there?

        You’re not toying with us now are you Mark? I’m diving into a sound room build which will include ripping things down to the studs! It would be nice to avoid some obvious mistakes and a book or video session might be just what the Dr. ordered.

    Kind offer Mark. Perhaps the “experts” will oblige you as well. Do tell. I am equally interested in the way your room is treated and why. A synopsis will be forthcoming, I am sure, so here’s a thank you !

    Couldn’t make the trip from FL but the video would be interesting, and the book too.

    Hi Mark,

    As getting to Los Angeles is quite expensive from the UK, would you be able to do another session in say September, which would allow me time to get the finances resolved to be able to come over?

    For me as a humble consumer, this sort of insight in to audio would be invaluable, and a chance to understand the benefits of having a 5.1 system.

    Would another session be possible?

    Many thanks

    Gordon

      If this first seminar at AIX is successful (and it seems that we’ll sell out the ten slots…there are four places left), then I’d be happy to repeat the event later in the year.
