Andy Marsh's curator insight, March 9, 2013 4:02 PM

In this article, Mikel Rouse explains his opinion on why people think analog sounds better. A pro for digital is that the frequency range is not limited. A pro for analog is that people think it sounds better because of 70 years of humans being used to the frequencies an analog turntable can produce.

A con for digital is that you loose information because the sound is just numbers that approzimate the real sonund of analog. Digital may be less desired because it does not roll off the high and low frequencies, giving the sound a percieved harshness.

Well i feel that this article is relevant because it hit points on Sound Quality. In Recording Arts sound quality is 1 of the main aspects of what we learn.

Shaun Schapira's curator insight, September 14, 2014 9:27 PM

I like this article because it talks about the differences between recordings and the distribution of the recordings, and what consumers like to listen to. This explains why people may enjoy vinyl music more because of the way the songs were recorded and the fact that when they were pressed onto vinyl that the low and high end frequencies roll off slightly, therefore making the music sound more "rounded."

This article is very helpful to those who are seeking to become better at mixing their audio. This informative article provides diagrams and explanations on why they are mixing the way they do. I think this is good for anyone getting into the audio industry, because it provides an in depth look at compression and how it should be done properly.

According to this article, one major con of the popularity of digital audio is that musicians are getting paid less than what they used to be paid. However, a pro  is that this makes distribution easier.

kevin franklin's curator insight, October 13, 2013 11:37 PM
