Zach Branham's insight:

This app allows a person to simply click and record their voice or any other sound in a very simple fashion which is quick and efficient. If an artist has some lyrics come to them out of nowhere or a guitarist hears a riff in his head then they need not worry. This app allows them the opportunity to quickly record what they are singing/hearing so that they will not forget their idea. Eventually they can work and perfect this idea and create a song and record it to a different medium or to other audio software for future use or present use.

Zach Branham's insight:

Programs such as this give artists the ability to eliminate studio time and record from home. Whether the medium used is youtube, soundcloud, reverbnation, or one of many others, programs such as logic allows artists to produce studio quality work from home. This saves people a lot of money since it becomes one payment and not hourly rates. It also helps in collaboration with other artists and recording people on the side for work.

This makes the process of mastering a lot easier when the other production needed in the mix are complete. If you have a template you can apply every time your production is done it saves time and less mastering production effort is needed.

A record without recording: Audio files printed onto a playable record with 3D printer technology

A record without recording: Audio files printed onto a playable record with 3D printer technology | Audio Recording Technology | Scoop.it

In a bid to test the limits of 3-D printing technology, an audio tinkerer created a technique to convert digital audio files into a record that works on a turntable. The sound quality is scratchy, but should improve with advances in the printing technology.

 

The 3-D printed record was created by Amanda Ghassaei, a tech editor at the project-sharing website Instructables.com. 

 

The technique "works by importing raw audio data, performing some calculations to generate the geometry of a record, and eventually exporting this geometry straight to a 3-D printable format," she explained in an article for Instructables.com. 

 

She used a resin printer called Object Connex500, which has some of the highest resolution for 3-D printing. Like other 3-D printers, it creates an object layer by layer. You can listen to a few tracks from the record here, including Nirvana’s "Smells like Teen Spirit."

 

Even though the sound quality is an order of magnitude lower than a vinyl record, Ghassaei notes that we’re able to hear the song because evolution has fine-tuned our brains to filter out noise and focus on the important pieces of information.

Zach Branham's insight:

This is an amazing find to an extent. Being able to reinact the use of older technology and transform it into new technology. Old vinyl records can be hard to come by and now there is a path being paved to potentially bring those classics back to life now and even more advanced in the future. This will allow future musicials to use even more mediums to transfer their music to in order to spread and sell their product.

RICKY STEWART's curator insight, May 22, 11:05 AM

I scooped this because it was very interesting to me . For now the sound quality of this printed record  may be scratchy but with the speed that technology is moving I don't believe it will be long before that changes.

 

Because Albums are making a come back perfecting a 3-D record printer could have big effect on the audio industry. For the professional it would mean another form of media that they may be able to make a profit from. And to the consumers it will be another way to do-it-your-self.

Zach Branham's insight:

Mastering in Pro Tools helps to keep volume integrity when the final production is finished and transferring the audio files to different formats. This ensures that optimum sound is guaranteed from the master copy to: Cd's, Mp3, Wav, AAC, or any other file (Vinyl Included). Mastering with Pro Tools also allows the Mastering Engineer to make sure the final version is touched up and sounds like the artist and/or producer want it to sound. Resulting in better sales and reviews.

Zach Branham's insight:

Technology like this allows any person wanting to spread their music or sound on a global level without needing a giant label to do so. Apps such as Soundcloud reaches the far reaches and crevasses of the world to create a community of people sharing music. This is allowing people to not always use a professional studio and label, but allowing them to produce themselves.

 

Here are some pros: The average artist will be able to record and share their music with the world without spending a large sum of money to record professionally and get a label to push the album into the world. This also helps to put out artists that some people refer to as "The Greatest Unknown Artist", It helps everybody get themselves out there and reach for the stars.

 

Cons: People will migrate to these cheaper faucets of mass media hysteria in order to save money, they will start doing everything themselves. In turn this creates a financial strain on recording studios and producers who will have a decreased workload. Industry jobs will start becoming fewer, smaller studios who don't have V.I.P bands record will start closing because of lack of funding. It ultimately eliminates more industry jobs.
