From there, synthesizers began becoming better and more intuitive, to the point that now no physical synthesizer is needed—only a computer program, in which notes can be written and played on the computer. Also, synthesizers became more accessible to the public, as the prices were lowered. Along with this, companies began branching out and selling new types of electronic keyboards, such as the traditional keyboard or a sampler. All of these new innovations have been very influential to music. The invention of the syn... ... middle of paper ... ... come back into popularity.
With the changing times of technology, recording equipment is becoming better. Digital recording has many positives over analog recording, but also has its flaws. Musicians now have the faster, more efficient, and crisper recording, but to some that isn’t what matters. Some still enjoy the rich natural sound of the analog recordings Works Cited Day, Rebecca. “You Spin Me Right ‘Round.” Popular Mechanics.
This occurred due to the emergence of computers and synthetic processing. These two countries are more technologically advanced than most countries which explains why they were the first to develop this genre of music. Their access to computers and applications were much easier than most countries and it gave them the advantage when it came to electronic music. Although electronic music was being introduced and produced in the 1920s and 1930s, the popularity of the genre grew subtly between the 1970s to early 1980s. This occurred when drum synthesizers like the Roland TR-808 came out.
Since PC have a more compatible system hardware makes it more versatile but vulnerable to malware and viruses but Mac and PC users are safer after installing up-to-date antivirus software. Since PC is a better personal computer to run small businesses because of the power to managed the information and storing it . Mac and PC are really similar to each other, but the price differs because of the named of the brand but PC are not bound by one company. it has alternative companies creating the hardware that’s why PC's are cheap. Research conducted by David Kirkpatrick indicates that Pc has 47% of machines and still growing, but Mac's has only 11% of computer, we could argue which computer has better quality but Mac could reduce the value of their computers to acquire the same quality of a PC.
The operating system is a key part of the system software in any computer system. In order to do almost anything with a modern home computer you need to have a functional operating system. There are many different operating systems varying between ease of use and capability. I like to think of UNIX as being the more capable and modifiable one. Windows 8 being easier to use and more well supported for those who know little about computers.
A program interface that takes advantage of the computer's graphics capabilities to make the program easier to use. Well-designed graphical user interfaces can free the user from learning complex command languages. On the other hand, many users find that they work more effectively with a command-driven interface, especially if they already know the command language. The first graphical user interface was designed by Xerox Corporation's Palo Alto Research Center in the 1970s, but it was not until the 1980s and the emergence of the Apple Macintosh that graphical user interfaces became popular. One reason for their slow acceptance was the fact that they require considerable CPU power and a high-quality monitor, which until recently were prohibitively expensive.
Introduction According to Wikipedia, digital music is the “technology that can be used to record, store, generate, manipulate and reproduce sound using audio signals.” These are embedded in a digital form. Digital music has been developed since the 1970’s and has replaced analog studio technology greatly. Digital music has led to growth of music downloads because it is simpler for a music listener to download music straight away from sites like iTunes and Google Play, instead of going out to a shop to buy a hard copy like a cd. In some cases it is cheaper to buy digital downloads than by a cd or record but this can lead to a lot of copyright and piracy issues also. A music download is simply the transferral of free or purchased music from a website to a user’s computer.
With the PC, it is a simple matter to overclock the graphics card and other similar modifications, but with the Mac, you are plagued everywhere with passwords, and the Mac designers made it difficult to change such settings (Destinys-Child, 2000). Settings changeability aside, Mac is easier to use. First-time users have an easier time doing things on the Mac OS X than with Windows. At one point, the Mac's OS was so much easier to use than the PC's OS, there was no contest whatsoever. Today, however, Windows XP has greatly reduced the gap between the two systems.
However, many contemporary composers and their listeners consider the practice of buying digital "loops" of music for use in compositions completely acceptable. Over the past two decades, the implementation of computers in the recording industry has greatly lessened the cost of high quality recording. This reduction in cost has elicited an extreme change in the music recording process: Instead of spending hours and thousands of dollars in the studio, musicians can now record high quality music in their own homes. While conferring recording power to the musician should in theory augment the creativity of the recording process, the present state of the digital music community proves that this is not the case. Economical recording equipment, combined with effortless digital production and distribution, has generated a large digital music community with no legal or quality control standards.
Computers can manufacture products quickly, and eliminate possible human errors. As technology progresses, new ideas have been brought into computer to make them perform more efficiently. Also, scientists and engineers tend to make things “smaller”, so we can enjoy the benefits from electronic devices anywhere and anytime. Therefore, size and efficiency are two main points for consumers. Desktop computer and laptop computer are representatives for each of these concepts.
