The Mix Competition

Every year along with the event, we host a mix competition that is judged by a panel of professionals who critique every mix and choose three winner (1st, 2nd, and 3rd place) based upon standardized criteria.  The winners receive prizes that have included software, headphones, and professional microphones from the industry leading companies who sponsor the competition.

C.R.A.S.S. takes place each spring on Webster University's home campus in Webster Groves.  The event brings together hundreds of audio professionals, students, and enthusiasts from around the country for three days of education and interaction from within the field.


The Summit offers panels, discussions, and workshops led by some the audio industry's most respected professionals.  These discussions include topics in studio, game, live, post, and conceptual audio.


The 9th Annual Webster AES Central Region Audio Student Summit will be held on March 27th through the 29th of 2015.

Webster AES would like to extend a huge thank you to Charlie Brumley and The Educated Guess for their great generosity in allowing us to use their track "Baby If You Want It" for our mixing competition this year.  We are incredibly excited to have such a fine performance for students to begin with.
