compressing audio only files messes with the quality but in order to send audio iles it has to be in a small enough file.

Talks about audio quality concerning compression of audio files and the true sound of the music. Relates the information to a program that is available to provide an analog sound from standard compressed files.

Pretty much self explanitory. Not an extensive article but it provides some truthful information. Pro - There are always going to be haters whenever you are good at something. If you're important enough to have haters, then you should be proud. Cons - Some of these haters might go to extreme boundries to bring you down.

Cory Hogan's curator insight, March 9, 2013 3:38 PM

A lot of modern methods receive an immense amount of "hate" from "old schoolers." Some of this can help to bring more attention to the individuals in which the hate is directed, but the obvious downfall lies within the hate itself. This can lead to serious decay in the industry and slow progression.
