10 TECHNOLOGIES THAT ARE CHANGING THE WAY WE MAKE MUSIC


Music has remained an integral part of human`s life. Our ancestors started playing music and using it as a medium of expressing their emotions some thousands of years back. With the passage of time, we saw a significant transformation in the music industry as newly inducted technologies played a very decisive role. Today, we are living in the world of computer and internet. These two elements are well integrated into our daily lives. We cannot even think about carrying out our routine tasks without using technology. From banking to gaming modern technologies and innovative solutions are setting new heights and impact. Today, the way we create music also has an enhanced one. Let me discuss ten technologies that are changing the way we make music

  • Digital Hardware

The days are gone when we had bulky instruments with a requirement of frequent tuning and calibration. Today we have highly efficient and sensitive digital devices from microphones to guitars. These tools are making it possible the catchup of each and every note accurately

  • Software Solutions

Undoubtedly hardware is necessary, but we cannot do anything useful with that without having appropriate software support. Today`s studios are equipped with modern mixing software, designed to do everything in a clean way

  • Computerized Editing

This term, “editing” is used quite often in the entertainment industry. In fact, it is a technique that can be referred as “quality control mechanism” of media being created. Today`s digital editing tools are great, and they are helping us in removing flaws from our work

  • Availability of Bluetooth MIDI Controllers

In past LAN (Local Area Network) dominated being the only choice for sending and receiving of MIDI`s. in fact, every musician was using this old technology. However, today we can have this job done without the requirement of an Ethernet cable. Now, there are suitable software and hardware resources available through which MIDI`s can be trafficked. The Bluetooth technology works like a medium in almost every such case

  • Integration of Instruments with the Computers

In past, it remained a big headache. Today, technology giant Apple is delivering their newest iOS with a tendency to have musical instruments connected with the Macs in an easy way.

  • The VR Technology

A lot of discussions is taking place around us about the possible benefits of the Virtual Reality Technology. Its importance in the context of the musical industry is something that we might are missing. Now, we are going to have VR headsets and after wearing these, a musician will find himself wrapped around a music control panel where he will be able to monitor the think with by simple gestures and motions

  • Automated Dynamics Processing

Those who have some know how about the music industry are well aware of the importance of DP (dynamics processing). In past, musicians were used to relying on one or a team of engineers. Today, we have high-tech software solutions that can help you with the dynamic processing in a highly time and cost efficient manner

  • Music for Dummies

Sourcing of musical instruments is a costly affair. In fact, a novice musician a learner or a hobbyist sometimes cannot purchase all that stuff. Meanwhile, the available of simulating almost every instrument through a personal computer based program is something that can help the beginners

  • Remote Collaboration

Wow! It is something amazing that am going to tell you now. Today, everyone is shifting on the cloud storage for making it possible the coordination and collaboration even having your peers at a different geographical location. Similarly, now the music industry is also getting involved in this kind of stuff. Today, musicians can collaborate live with the help of cloud networks

  • Instruments with 3D TouchPads

Last but not the least it’s the application of 3D touch pads and their integration in digital music devices. Until now the results are excellent
