Analogue Warmth

Analogue Warmth | Industry News | Scoop.it
Analogue warmth seems to be the Holy Grail in these digital days. But what is it, why does it hold such appeal, and how can you use it to enhance your recordings?

Kevin Cartwright's insight:

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.

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

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.

Kevin Cartwright's insight:

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.

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.

Kevin Cartwright's insight:

This article was well written and informative, as it incorporated visual representation of how evolving into the digital recording era we have significantly decreased dynamic range in music. There is also a video on how through the excessive experimentation with digital methods have contributed to many cunsumer related problems such mental and physical well-being and over music quality.

Kevin Cartwright's insight:

This article gave brief information on the digital advancements on recording, including the negative effect of the loudness war.The linked video aided in giving a much better understanding of the subject

 

Pro: This article aided in informing aspiring beatmakers, recording engineers, and producers in the better dynamic ranging meters, that could limit their confusion of why their tracks do not eminate the desired commercial sound.

 

Con: This article was very brief as there was not much information to answer a few of the many questions persons might have about their producing or recording dilemma.
