I think that Digital is much more convenient but analog sounds better.

Paul Wodarski's curator insight, October 11, 2015 5:33 PM

This article talks about the pros and cons of Analog recording vs Digital recording. This source can be very helpful to industry professionals as well as myself who is just starting out in the industry of recording. This source is liable being that it was written by a producer/engineer with 15 years of experience.

analog is very time consuming and high maintenance and very expensive to keep going.

Analog Vs. Digital Sound Boards - How to Decide | Acoustics By Design Blog | analog vs. digital recording | Scoop.it

For me, it's hard to decide on which to choose. As far as digital consoles, like it says in the article, they allow you to have presets for any show you do, which is something that I find very useful, especially for time when I have done theatre productions. You can also save those presets on a USB drive and use it on another console, which is great, especially if you're touring. However, I've used analog more than digital and it's safe to say I am very comfortable with it. The article made a good point saying that with analog consoles, all of the channels and settings are visible. On a digital console, you're constantly flipping through screen which can be a hassel. In the future, I do see myself using digital consoles, but I think it would depend on the show. - Sydney Tavares

This article is very interesting coming from a person that has manly worked on an analog for five years and very little experience with a digital bored it is shocking to see that other individuals feel the same way that i did comparing the two.

This engineer speaks about first using digital and loving the advantages of being able to edit and such but when working on certain projects he prefers the analog sound, though it can be replicated. He uses the analogy I don't throw away an old pair of shoes because I got a new pair.

I chose this article because it provided a personal view of Pro Tools and Analog based recording. This article went into further details of analog recording that I'd never heard of.

Digital technology is used alot more in the recording industry now a days, but is it right to say that digital is better just because it is newer? I digree, because sound is all about taste and the way you want it.

Whether you think Analog is better than Digital vice versa. This article explains both sides of reasons why the music industry had to evolve to distributing music. But as you read, you should have your own understanding and see if your biased opinion may need to be revised.Hopefully a treaty can be established.

Cody Stoughtenger's curator insight, January 19, 2014 2:14 PM

I agree digital and analog will be around for years to come and people in the industry should not see that as a bad thing. Having digital and analog gives diverse options for overall sound. That helps mixing engineers reinvent themselves.

This is relevent to my topic because it goes into depth the pros and cons of the analag vs. digital war. 

Kevin Cartwright's curator insight, October 10, 2013 11:23 AM

This article is a great read in understanding how old methods that were improved or seen as negatives when creating the perfect visual or audio representation, are now inspiring new forms of artistry. Using analogue warmth in drums or kits bring forth nostalgia for the beat maker who grew up in the late 80's and early 90's era. But there has been some abuse to the concept.

Cody Stoughtenger's curator insight, January 19, 2014 1:49 PM

Even though technology has progressed passed the classic tape machine, it is still in use part of the time in the industry. It is still desired because of the character it establishes on a piece of audio. The warmth enhancement is something people continue to argue when I comes to digital verses analog.
