  • piano

    The piano is a versatile keyboard instrument widely used in both western and non-western music for accompaniment, composition, solo performance, and as a rehearsal aid. It produces sound by striking metal strings with felt hammers. The vibrations are transmitted to a soundboard by a bridge
  • Radio

    Radio broadcasting is transmission of audio, sometimes with related metadata, by radio waves intended to reach a wide audience. In terrestrial radio broadcasting the radio waves are broadcast by a land-based radio station, while in satellite radio the radio waves are broadcast by a satellite in Earth orbit.
  • magnetic tape

    Magnetic tape is a medium for magnetic recording, made of a thin, magnetizable coating on a long, narrow strip of plastic film. It was developed in Germany in 1928, based on magnetic wire recording. Devices that record and playback audio and video using magnetic tape are tape recorders and video tape recorders respectively. A device that stores computer data on magnetic tape is known as a tape drive
  • bass guitar

    The bass guitar, electric bass or simply bass, is the lowest-pitched member of the guitar family. It is a plucked string instrument similar in appearance and construction to an electric or an acoustic guitar, but with a longer neck and scale length, and typically four to six strings or courses
  • HI-FI

    High fidelity is a term used by listeners, audiophiles, and home audio enthusiasts to refer to high-quality reproduction of sound
  • vinyl

    the first vinyl record was introduced at the soon-to-be standardized 33 1/3 rpm speed. It used microgroove plastic to extend a 12-inch record's playtime to 21 minutes on each side.
  • effects unit

    An effects unit or effects pedal is an electronic device that alters the sound of a musical instrument or other audio source through audio signal processing
  • analogue synthesizer

    Analog synthesizers generate their sounds by manipulating electric voltages. The oscillator shapes the voltage to produce a steady pitch at a given frequency, which determines the basic waveform that will be processed elsewhere in the synthesizer
  • Analogue mixing desk

    A key milestone was reached in 1958 when EMI's Record Engineering Development Department installed the first dedicated stereo mixing system at Abbey Road Studios in London, the REDD 17
  • analogue mixing desk

    Analog mixers work in the opposite way of digital mixers this type of mixer uses analog sound transmission instead of digital sound transmission. There are a few benefits to using an analog mixer instead of a digital one. Analog mixers are much easier to operate because they have only one function per control.
  • electric guitar

    An electric guitar is a guitar that requires external amplification in order to be heard at typical performance volumes, unlike a standard acoustic guitar. It uses one or more pickups to convert the vibration of its strings into electrical signals, which ultimately are reproduced as sound by loudspeakers
  • cassettes

    It was developed by the Dutch company Royal Philips in Hasselt, Belgium, by Lou Ottens and his team. It was introduced in September 1963. Compact Cassettes come in two forms, either already containing content as a prerecorded cassette (Musicassette), or as a fully recordable "blank" cassette.
  • Digital mixing desk

    It was already no stranger to consoles, having kicked off its PM series of analog mixers 15 years earlier in 1972, but at that moment, the company was riding high on the success of its then ubiquitous DX7 synthesizer. It was in fact from that product that the first Yamaha digital mixer the DMP7 was born
  • music videos

    At 12:01am on August 1, 1981, history was made when MTV, the first 24-hour video music channel, launched onto our television sets and literally changed our lives with the birth of the music video. The first video ever played on the network was quite ironic — “Video Killed The Radio Star” by The Buggles.
  • MIDI

    MIDI is a technical standard that describes a communications protocol, digital interface, and electrical connectors that connect a wide variety of electronic musical instruments, computers, and related audio devices for playing, editing, and recording music
  • portable cd player

    Sony D-5/D-50
    The world's first portable CD player, later to be called a "Discman." It cost around $300 when it was introduced in November 1984
  • Digital mixing desk

    In professional audio, a digital mixing console (DMC) is an electronic device used to combine, route, and change the dynamics, equalization and other properties of multiple audio input signals, using digital signal processing rather than analog circuitry
  • cubase

    Cubase is a digital audio workstation (DAW) developed by Steinberg for music and MIDI recording, arranging and editing. The first version, which was originally only a MIDI sequencer and ran on the Atari ST computer, was released in 1989.
  • logic

    Notator Logic came onto the scene in the very early 1990s, and did not even come to the Mac until around version 1.6 in 1993 (although it was tough to run because you needed a massive 600MB hard drive). Logic continued to be developed as a multiplatform app available on both Mac and PC until about version 5.5.
  • pro tools

    The first Pro Tools system was launched on June 5, 1991. It was based on an adapted version of Deck (ProDeck) along with Digidesign's new editing software, ProEdit; Sound Designer II was still supplied for two-channel editing
  • ADAT

    The ADAT (Alesis Digital Audio Tape) was an eight-track recording machine first introduced in 1992, which used consumer S-VHS (video cassette) tapes to store data.
  • mp3

    Karlheinz Brandenburg, that's who—inventor of the humble MP3 music file. MP3, or MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III to the mega-boffins, is a patented encoded format for digital audio
  • lime wire
