If People Are Trying to Shame You, You're Probably Doing Something Right

If People Are Trying to Shame You, You're Probably Doing Something Right | Analog and Digital methods in the Audio Industry | Scoop.it
Whether you're starting a new business, or just trying something new in your workplace, having critics isn't necessarily a bad thing. Marketing guru Seth Godin points out that upsetting the status quo is likely to ruffle a few feathers.

Cory Hogan's insight:

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.

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.

30 Years Of The CD, Of Digital Piracy, And Of Music Industry Cluelessness | Techdirt

30 Years Of The CD, Of Digital Piracy, And Of Music Industry Cluelessness | Techdirt | Analog and Digital methods in the Audio Industry | Scoop.it

A post on The Next Web reminds us that the CD is thirty years old this month. As the history there explains, work began back in the 1970s at both Philips and Sony on an optical recording medium for music, which culminated in a joint standard launched in 1982. The key attribute of the compact disc was not so much its small size -- although that was the most obvious difference from earlier vinyl -- but that fact that it stored music in a digital, rather than analog format.

 

At the time, that probably seemed a technical detail to most people, but it had two profound consequences. First, it began the shift from a world of analogue music recordings -- LPs and tapes -- to one that was digital. And secondly, it created the pre-condition for the rise of file sharing in the 1990s once the MP3 compression technology had been devised, and the Internet became available to general users -- especially younger ones. Services like Napster would not have been nearly so popular had there not been convenient digital files on CDs just sitting there, waiting to be ripped, uploaded and shared. And the reason it was so easy to do that was because CDs came without any copy protection mechanisms whatsoever.

 

So how on earth did Philips, Sony and the entire music industry make what must appear in retrospect such a huge blunder? Why did they not worry about people copying files from these new CDs? The answer is very simple: because at the time the CD was launched, there was nothing you could copy a CD to.

Basically an amazing feature and improvment to creating audio. Pros - The ability to convert vinyl to digital is a big help when creating certain samples or recordings. Cons - Certain people wont want to convert their vinyls.

I grew up listening to ZAO and love the way they albums are recorded because it sounds so organic. I can defiantly say they sound live just as they do recorded.

ZAO was my first introduction to anything heavier than what was on the radio. Also, the first band i mimicked vocals to. Wish I could have seen them live, man.

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