The invention of the syn... ... middle of paper ... ... come back into popularity. New electronic instruments have aided in the creation of new genres, and quite heavily so in some cases. In some cases, electronic instruments such as the synth were so essential to the genre that there would be little to no possibility of its existing without that other instrument existing to. Society now has a better understanding of how music works due to the invention of these instruments. Discoveries have been made in science, math, and music theory through the experimenting with of electronic instruments that not only have furthered our understanding of music, but have given the scientific and mathematical community a better understanding of many other previously unexplored areas of science.
So, as one can now see, technological advancements were indeed the cause of most improvements in the field of music in the video game industry. These technological improvements, which are the increase of the number of bits of a Sound Central Processing, the increase of Audio Random-Access-Memory, the switch from the use of frequency modulation to digital sampling, and the use of compact discs for playing music during a game, have now expanded the horizon of music in the industry and opened up many new possibilities. Even though the industry itself might not last as long as the mainstream musical or computer industries, one can see that it has clearly left a mark in the history of humankind's development and usage of music. To conclude, the words of Tommy Tallarico, another video game music composer and programmer, perfectly summarize what is happening in the video game industry: When people think of video game music, they have always thought of little bleeps and blips. But now, the industry has changed so radically over the last couple of years as far as music is concerned that it has evolved beyond anyone's expectations.3
Of course, like anything, there are drawbacks; however, I believe that technology has only added to the tools that musicians have. Yes, this adds to the number of ways they can misuse these tools, but it also brings new and interesting opportunities into existence. My main reason for being in defense of high tech is the fact that technology has allowed musicians to call attention to and promote their music in ways that a physical record could never do. Technology has given musicians the capability to reach a wider audience from all around the world. Not only that, but it has also made purchasing any type of music especially easy for consumers, being both quick and affordable.
CONCLUSION Although stagnant in recent years, there has been exciting events and key figures that have impacted the way of digital recording over the analog to digital timespan. While it’s true that MP3 file sharing has definitely revolutionized the way we make and listen to music, these things already have happened in the past. Both the radio and the VCR upset the traditional ways music was produced and circulated. Digital audio has come along way. From analog eight track recorders that use tape, technological advancements allowed people to use binary codes to create an infinite amount of tracks digitally.
The healthcare industry’s migration to the cloud is inevitable—driven by an irresistible blend of competitive realities and patient demand. As in any major change in business or technology, early movers tend to reap the benefits. As consumers are becoming more tech savvy, the demand for information at the touch of their fingertips is also becoming more demanding. The move to cloud computing from a healthcare standpoint is taking precedence above the old fashioned way of healthcare. Research has shown that cloud computing is not only good for companies but also for the environment.
The History of Sound Recording The methods used to produce, edit, and record music and sound have changed with the introduction of new sound technology. The compatibility of computer technology with music recording has led to large scale developments in computer-based systems, especially by home users. Modern computer technology in music and audio is fundamentally different in comparison to older magnetic tape recording techniques because it is digital. New computerised digital methods are significantly better at manipulating sound (editing, recording, etc) than the highest fidelity analogue tape methods of the past. Instruments nowadays are generally considered easier to play than their predecessors hundreds of years ago (due to quality manufactured parts, and standardisation of music notation).
The Impact of Computers on Society Computer technology not only has solved problems but also has created some, including a certain amount of culture shock as individuals attempt to deal with the new technology. A major role of computer science has been to alleviate such problems, mainly by making computer systems cheaper, faster, more reliable, easier to use. Computers are forever present in the workplace. Word processors-computer software packages that simplify the creational and modification of documents-have largely replaced the typewriter. Electronic mail has made it easy to send messages worldwide via computer communication networks.
The Internet connects so many people with so many products and, as in all industry, not all these people and products are fair and honest. The same is true in the world of the online music industry. Some artists champion the public's right to hear and record their music in an "industry-free" atmosphere. Others fear that their art is being exploited and their rights denied. In October 1999 the IFPI announced its efforts "aimed at ridding the Internet of large amounts of pirate content and paving the way for artists and record companies to deliver music electronically and legally across the world" (IFPI, 1999).
Bandwidth also contributed to Napster’s success. The greater the bandwidth, the faster the file can be transferred. So, Napster really changed the way people listen to music, discover music and interact with music. 2) What were the effects of Napster on the recording industry? In this case, there are three main effects of Napster on the recording industry.
Napster vs. Record Companies The evolution of technologies associated with the Internet has had a great influence on our society by allowing its users to access a great variety of valuable resources without leaving the comfort of their home. Simply by connecting our computer to a server through our phone lines, we are given an endless choice of what to do with our time online. We could purchase items ranging from books and tickets to sporting events and concerts to electronics and clothing. We can entertain ourselves with pornography or just listen to radio stations in foreign countries. IT growth has let us; the computer users explore the infinite possibilities of the "Computer Age".
