Progression of Music and Technology

  • Piano

    a large keyboard musical instrument with a wooden case enclosing a soundboard and metal strings, which are struck by hammers when the keys are depressed. The strings' vibration is stopped by dampers when the keys are released and can be regulated for length and volume by two or three pedals.
  • Analogue synthesiser

    Analogue synthesiser
    Analog synthesisers generate their sounds by manipulating electric voltages. ... The sound passes from the filter to the amplifier, which controls the volume of the sound. The amplifier generally includes a series of envelope controls, which help determine the nuances in volume level over the lifespan of a note. by using the analog circuits and signals this piece of equipment can generate sounds.
  • Radio

    Radio is the technology of signaling and communicating using radio waves. Radio waves are electromagnetic waves of frequency between 30 hertz and 300 gigahertz. The transmission and reception of electromagnetic waves of radio frequency, especially those carrying sound messages.
  • Magnetic tape

    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. ... A device that stores computer data on magnetic tape is known as a tape drive.
  • Bass

    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.
  • Electric Guitar

    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.
  • vinly

    synthetic resin or plastic consisting of polyvinyl chloride or a related polymer, used for wallpapers and other covering materials and for records.
  • Effects processing unit

    Effects processing 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. this can come in the form of pedals and plug ins to the instruments being used.
  • The 1st music video (Stranger in paradise)

    The 1st music video (Stranger in paradise)
    The first music video as we know it today, was Tony Bennett's "Stranger in Paradise"(1953) (cannot find it online). They were promotional little films designed to highlight the new talking pictures, but they have the form of a music video: they are built around the performance of a single song.
  • Analogue mixing desk

    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.
  • Cassette

    a sealed plastic unit containing a length of audio tape, videotape, film, etc. wound on a pair of spools, for insertion into a recorder, playback device, or other machine.
  • HI-FI home audio

    HI-FI home audio
    Hi-fi systems generally comprise 2 loudspeakers. They are essentially designed for listening to music which signal (sound source) is intended to be listened to in stereo (known as 2.0), i.e. a right channel and a left channel. For optimal music reproduction, it is often best to choose floorstanding loudspeakers.
  • 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. MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface.
  • portable cd player

    portable cd player
    A portable CD player is a portable audio player used to play compact discs. The first audio player released was the Discman D-50 by Sony. Portable CD players are powered by batteries and they have a 1/8" headphone jack into which the user plugs a pair of headphones.
  • Digital mixing desk

    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.
  • Pro tools

    Pro tools
    Pro Tools is a digital audio workstation developed and released by Avid Technology for Microsoft Windows and macOS. It is used for music creation and production, sound for picture and, more generally, sound recording, editing, and mastering processes.
  • Steinberg cubase

    Cubase is a digital audio workstation 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.
  • Logic

    Logic Pro is a digital audio workstation and MIDI sequencer software application for the macOS platform. It was originally created in the early 1990s as Notator Logic, or Logic, by German software developer C-Lab which later went by Emagic. this software in current time offers usage of live loops, sampler, step sequencer and allows you to work on your iphone, pad and other devices on the apple platform.
  • ADAT

    Alesis Digital Audio Tape (ADAT) is a magnetic tape format used for the recording of eight digital audio tracks onto the same S-VHS tape used by consumer VCRs. ADAT is an optical audio protocol designed to transfer digital audio to and from two audio devices. At 44.1/48kHz sample rates, ADAT can transport 8 channels of uncompressed digital audio to and from an interface and peripheral device with just one Toslink cable.
  • MP3

    An MP3 file is an audio file that uses a compression algorithm to reduce the overall file size.
  • Limewire
