Manner Torris's curator insight, November 6, 2014 1:50 PM

This articles explain the hurt on music sales on online stores like iTunes, Amazon, and others. Streaming music is ultimately hurting the general sales of any record labels or music distribution formats.

Alex Capps's curator insight, November 9, 2014 3:41 PM

In this article it is stated that the sales of online downloads dropped 6.5%  between 2012 and 2013 while online streaming sales climbed 32%. It is believed that streaming will become the most sufficient way for music collecting. The article also shows a breakdown of overall music sales.  

JD Gorecki's curator insight, May 15, 2015 12:53 PM

This article is an overall summary of music streaming and the justified impact it is making on the world within the last few years. It clearly examples from "Billboard" and "Nielsen Entertainment" with facts and quotes such as "streaming was up 32 percent over the previous year, to 118.1 billion track streams." The reader will find many other statistics throughout the article making it a much more realistic idea of the latest music streaming. I believe that this is a reliable source and overview to undermine what is really being covered because of the facts presented from important people and companies playing a major role in the industry.

Well, a proper, somewhat poetic use which is currently in beta stage. Researcher and Instructables DIY project site team member Amanda Ghassaei has discovered a way to use the technology to turn any MP3 into a fully functional vinyl record.

Will 3D printers kill the record industry (all over again) ?

Ultrafonic's curator insight, January 20, 2014 5:25 PM

Why???

MegaMissioN's curator insight, January 21, 2014 7:17 PM

As you may know mp3's are nothing more than zeros and ones, so the thought of making something physical from such a minimal code I think this is pretty cool. As a music lover and collector of dope sounds, I appreciate advances in technology, especially for creative purposes. Amanda Ghassaei explains it as, importing raw audio data, performing some calculations to generate the geometry of a record, and eventually exporting this geometry straight to a 3D printable file format. 

Now before we all go HipHop Horray let me break down the pros and cons: http://bit.ly/1bgH8A2

In this first phase covering South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, the method by which concert recordings can be purchased is via a “special USB wristband” onto which a single show can be downloaded "approximately 48 hours after the show." The price point of the wristband, according to Springsteen's official merchandise store, is $40.
