Want to rip music from YouTube, but leave the video behind?

Rob Gallo's insight:

I found this article extremely helpful. Personally, I like to get my music off of youtube for free as well as a majority of today's society. I have my specfic website that I use, but I've never heard of this one. This website seems much more simple and even installs add-ons to your browser to minimize the effort it takes to download your free music.

Rob Gallo's insight:

This article really interested me for a few reasons. I've never personally liked Beats headphones, but I can assure they are doing pretty well in the market place. After reading this, I have come to find out that beats will be opening their own radio streaming. Judging in today's society, I cannot really tell how well Beats Music will do in the industry.

This new beats music streaming will be available to the public for music streaming. It applies to music technology because it makes music available to listen to. I believe this music station will be the next big thing due to the success of Beats headphones.

It seems that much of music distribution is becoming more adjusted to streaming because it is more convenient for consumers. Beats launching its on streaming service shows that this part of  industry is growing quickly.

Nintendo Music Performed by Robotic Piano and Drums | Music Technology | Scoop.it
Got a player piano and some drums around? Why not hook them up to your Nintendo Entertainment System and have them play the soundtrack live -- including the bleeps and bloops when you get power-ups! Now you're playing with robots!

Rob Gallo's insight:

In this article, I read about something I've never heard about. To think you could plug your keyboard and drums into a nintendo console and have them play the complicated sounds is amazing. I'd definitely like to learn more about how this works.

Turn Your Old iPhone into a Wireless Music System

Turn Your Old iPhone into a Wireless Music System | Music Technology | Scoop.it
Attention, Mac people who just bought or are about to receive a new iPhone.

Rob Gallo's insight:

For this article, I thought it was kind of irrelevant. Most people that own iphones and ipods have the basic knowledge on how to stream music and radio. This article just talked about how to turn your old iphone into a music playing receiver and plug it into speakers. This may be a helpful tip for some people, but I don't see much potential in it.

Max Blau / Mashable: How Spotify Engineered the New Music Economy  —  Steve Cooper didn't expect much from Spotify.  —  When the New York-based band Spirit Animal released “The Black Jack White” last spring, the band's frontman didn't have high...

Rob Gallo's insight:

It's really amazing how much digital technology and social media is changing the entire music scene. Like stated in this article, the band member didn't think Spotify would succeed much for his band. He then came to find out it populated the band's name by a lot. It's still always at a debate whether streaming music online is a positive or negative. 

 

Pros:

     To me, pros of streaming music online and using spotify and such are an advantage. Artists are able to have their music circualte the nation before it finally sells. This gives people the opportunity to judge whether or not they like the music and will purchase more. Another great part of this is the advertising aspect. Throughout social media, bands and artists are able to greatly advertise their work and gain a bigger fanbase.

 

Cons:

     Some negatives to having your work online being streamed and such include the band not being able to make profit. If you're work is online where it can be accessed for free, why would people buy it? People can simply sample their music and decide whether or not they want to buy it, without already buying it. These are also ways how the artists lose support, fans and money.
