A new era of sound recording

A new era of sound recording

Worldwide, thousands of songs are recorded and produced in a single day. So sound recording has become a natural process for us. It can be felt that the world of recorded sound is different now. The new technology of sound collection that has come in recent times is introducing novelty in the recording method. Looking back to 1983, it can be said that there has been a revolution in music or sound recording and new instruments of preservation.

Since then, along with CDs and digital audio, new devices have gained momentum. The 'MP3' that came in 1996 came into vogue for a long time. Its use can still be seen. It is considered a quality and reliable record medium. Digital monitors in 1999 added another feature. It included both a media player and a library. Developed by iTunes, the company allows users to download, organize, and store a myriad of files.

Major Transitions, which came out in 2006, set huge tower records, which played an important role in saving and archiving. Nowadays, various means including memory, pen drive, or online apps are used to save audio. With the development of YouTube, the content has also started to be kept safe on YouTube. We have no problem finding a wide range of sound recording and protection options. However, going back to the early stages of song recording, we find it strange.

To get back to the early days of the record, it's important to know about the world's first recorded song. Edward Leon Scott de Martinville, a French citizen, first invented the phonograph, which he invented.

On April 9, 1860, he recorded the sound. The first recorded song in French was "Junelima" (A Clear the Le Lun). The phonograph converted sound into a picture of waves, engraved on paper or glass. However, its sound could not be heard and could not be reproduced. After the invention of the phonograph, soundwave graphics could be transcribed into audio files that could be heard again.

The invention of the phonograph can be traced back to the invention of the recording technology in 1877. Since then, various technologies have been developed including wax cylinders, flat discs, RAC Victor, mass production, radio broadcasts.

With the advent of the digital age, the sound recording has gone through various eras. Experts say that sound recording has been started to be heard again in the future. According to scientists, the sound is an intangible thing. The various methods and steps for recording this abstract thing were as follows:

The ecstatic and mechanical age

This recording method was used from 1890 to 1925. During that time all sound recordings were made by mechanical means without microphones or electrical amplification.

Before 1925, for sound recordings, singers and instrumentalists performed live performances in front of the horn, from which sound waves were collected and transmitted to the diagram. The energy of the sound waves vibrated the diagram.

This caused waves to form on the empty 'wax' rotating cylinder or disk. This method had no electronic control. At that time, recording songs using this method was considered a great skill. However, the record range of this recording method was limited.

Electric age

During this time electrical recordings appeared as a result of scientific experimentation and innovation. This electrical method 'replaced' the ecstatic method.

It was first used by the Columbia Record Company and the Victor Talking Machine Company in 1924. This improved the sound quality. At this stage, the sound was recorded on an electronic device, using a variety of instruments, including microphones and amplifiers.

Electronic microphones have dramatically changed the way singers perform, and electronic promotions have had a profound effect on many areas, facilitating development in radio, public address systems, and electronically.

At the same time, practical methods of providing sound came into use. The technology at this stage was such that audio sources could be heard simultaneously.

One of the most famous examples of composite sound at this stage is the famous 'Tarzan Scream' made for a series of Tarzan films starring Johnny Weissmą¤²ą¤°ller. However, this technology did not change the group's direct performance. It lasted until 1945.

Magnetic age

After the invention of the magnetic tape recording in Germany in 1950, a new change took place in audio recording. This is the technology used in the period from 1945 to 1976.

The technology was invented in the 1930s but was limited to Germany until the end of World War II. The magnetic tape took another leap in audio reliability. Magnetic tape has rapidly become the standard medium for audio master recording in the radio and music industries since the 1950s and led to the development of the first hi-fi recording for the domestic market.

Multitrack tape recording was developed for music. Disc for sound ended. The magnetic tape also brought the original shape of the recording process. This made the recording possible for a much longer period than before and made it much easier for recording engineers.

Easily manipulate, edit, and record disc sounds captured on tapes made the impossible possible. Large "virtual" sounds and devices were created in the 1950s. Magnetic tape promoted the rapid expansion of popular music and other genres.

Digital is the new age

Sound has been collected through digital technology since 1975. The current phase is in the digital age, which is the biggest leap in the history of recording. The Japanese electronics corporation Sony first used the PCM encoder PCM-1 audio unit in the 1970s.

In 1979, unlike previous technologies, it captured a continuous analog recording of sound. Many short-term hybrid studios and consumer technologies appeared during this period. For example, digital audio tapes or data, which began recording digital signal patterns on standard magnetic tapes.

Sony introduced the development of its new digital recording system with Philips using today's most advanced consumer audio format Digital Compact Disc (CD).

By the end of the 20th century, compact discs had almost completely dominated the consumer audio market. The rapid development of computing technology in its last decade marked the most important era in the history of audio recording, greatly reducing file size.

Extensive licensing of audio and other digital media files began to take place. Free -ware technologies such as Napster and BitTorrent upload and download large volumes of digital media files at high speeds. Fast internet signals and data storage have consistently improved devices.

Music broadcasting services have gained popularity since 2000. Streaming audio does not require listeners to download or own audio files. Streaming services offer an alternative way to listen to music. At the same time, more and more voice recording technologies are being introduced.
