Why join the ASD?
Private discussion forum and Facebook group
- where you can create and discuss topics with some of the best sound designers in the world.
- our training seminars are unique in that they are primarily run by world-class sound designers and engineers, experts in their field, and are only open to ASD members. We run a travel assistance scheme
- if you live more than 50 miles from one of our training events, we may pay 33% to 50% of the cost of a standard saver return rail fare - see here for more details/terms & conditions
Recent seminars include:
Most of our seminars are video-recorded and archived if you are unable to attend - the full list of recorded seminars is available here
To get a sense of what we produce, here is part 1 of our "Introduction to QLab v3" seminar, useful if you've been using v2 for a while and want to change to v3.
We're establishing regular social meetings: our New Year Drinks on the first Friday in January have been very popular. We will be having a Summer Social, hopefully a BBQ in August/September. And we run social events and drinks to coincide with events we organise.
