This project will be used to gain an understanding of where to find audio sources and the importance of implementing them in a classroom environment.
Digital and Analog recording which both were foreign to me, I now have a better understanding of them both now. To help me understand them I use this saying “digital data" which means that a digital recording deals with data and "analog acoustic" and analog deals with recording acoustic recording into an electric sound. The more data on a digital recording the more data you have about the actual sound that was recorded. The digital recordings you can change whatever you want about them because they are dealing with data. Then the acoustic recording seems as if you are transferring the acoustic sound to an electric sound. The understanding that I have of an analog recording is it is the exact replica of what was previously recorded. There is not much you can do to change it.
production. The goal of getting a good sound is no different now than it was when the first recordings
Until the late 40s, most country and western artists on a major record label would record in New York, Los Angeles or Chicago as they were where the label offices and studios were located. 1945 saw the first independent recording studio built in Nashville, titled ‘The Castle Recording company’ and was created by a pair of enterprising radio engineers from WSM in Nashville, (Levy 2000, 22-23). In 1954, Nashville Producer Owen Bradley constructed a studio away from downtown in the famed Quonset hut and was soon followed by a rush of producers, publishers and performers in the late 50s to early 60s converting old houses into studios and offices. This central hub of music industry development in downtown Nashville would form what would come to be known as ‘Music Row’ (Hill 2011, 294). This rush of interest would see session musician and producer Chet Atkins persuade label RCA Victor to construct a studio in 1957, later known as “Studio B”. (Studio B, n.d.)
Eldridge then made the invention for your music player called the record. There would be a group of musicians in the recording room. The group got very close to a needle that carved the music into the disk. You had to be very careful with this item because it could be broken or scratched so easily, and it didn't matter if it was only a tiny crack. Once it was cracked, the song would not play right. To get to a different song on the disk, you have to find the exact spot on it, which was very difficult to find. Without records, no one would want to buy this large wooden box that spun. It did noting without these flat
After a couple of “failed” attempts of making a device that could be used for mass sharing of music in the late 1800s, an immigrant from Germany had finally come up with an idea that would change everything. Chichester Bell (Alexander Graham Bell's cousin) and Thomas Edison’s idea to record sounds on round cylinders was a good idea except for the sound quality and general effort that was required to make and replicate sound. The Phonograph was one of the earliest attempts at recording devices. Thomas A. Edison wanted to create this device in order to assist with business interactions. He originally used foil to record sounds, but this wasn't the best medium. You could only play sounds once and the quality wasn’t the greatest. This is when wax cylinders came into play. It was eventually decided that the wax cylinder wasn't strong enough to record something permanently. Next followed the graphophone. This invention by Bell fixed the replay problem, but mass production of music would’ve been impossible because of the sheer amount of work involved in recording each cylinder separately (Bells).
The music industry is undergoing a massive change, and as a result, musicians and music producers increasingly require skills in a number of different areas in order to succeed. In this assignment I will explain the architecture of a Digital Audio Workstation, music sequencing and available sound sources and the fundamental processes and components of studio recording. By creating a backing track, I will evaluate, experiment and create Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) sequences with the use of hardware and software.
Seriously, are you old enough to remember the bulky cassette recorders that we use to take with us to parties to play music or to school to record assignments. Well, I am definitely old enough to remember taking one to my high school to record band rehearsals in the auditorium. Well, that seems like a lifetime ago. Now, there is a revolutionary new product that is going to really blow your mind. The name of the product is the Instamic. Clearly, it is going to change the way that you record music, voice, instruments, or spy your gay boyfriend.

The fancy microphones. The sound-proof room. The mixing boards and the recording equipment. Once you start putting together your home recording studio equipment list, it might become pretty clear pretty fast that it can be quite expensive to actually pull off that recording at home.
cheaper and more convenient alternatives such as cable/ satellite providers offering recordings via DVR, cell phones, tablets and other electronic devices
Most successful musicians know a hidden art carried out by the work of a good sound engineer; it is essential for a magnificent album. For the rest of us novice listeners and fans, we believe what we hear through our speakers or played over the radio are the true skilled professional musicians, soaring at their craft. Most contemporary music, from pop to R&B and acid jazz to the sophisticated realm of orchestral film scores, has been modernized by several inventions encased within the studio. The art of audio engineering has taken on new forms, from the nuts and bolts, "plug it in, and see if it works" era into the digital world, because of these wonderfully tragic solutions to a

The advancements of technology have impacted the recording studios more dramatically than any other career within the music industry. Thus the necessity to adapt to these changes is vital for any individual working in this field. However, these advancements have also made the technology of professional recording studios more accessible and subsequently caused the rise of home recording studios.
