Today, music is one of the biggest entertainment industries in the world. This market is hotter for many reasons. First of all, customersí demands and tastes are higher and more diversified than ever. Second, the number of people and companies working in this field are increasing at such a dizzy speed that it creates a huge pool of tough competition, and of course, to survive, they have to be unique and distinguished.
We can list some relevant industry jobs such as Recording, Radio, Television, and Other Media, Working live shows and tours, Music Retailing and Instrument Repairing, Education and Instruction, and many more. Among them, the recording industry is one that has been applying high-end technologies for many years.
The recording industry commenced at the start of the 20th century when sheet music publishers dominated the music business. With a quick development pace, the recording industry gradually dominated and controlled the music industry. This is the kind of mass-production copiesí business that can fix the price in the market.
To be the priority in the effervescent market of recording, what can they do? – Reducing the price? – Noisy brand-name advertising? – Or investing in technological upgrading of products and services? Although technologies change very fast every day, people still choose high-tech applications as the best way to affirm their positions in the music market.
Regarding the recording industry, we consider that this is a technical and creative career. High-end technology is useful for both sides of this job. Recording engineers definitely must be technically skilled with the equipment. They must manipulate skillfully with all the buttons or knobs to get the correct sound that the artist or the producer wants to have. A good microphone is necessary for the first step to begin with the recording process. And then, with the instruments, they find out the expected sounds – not music. Finally, the recording engineer will make the adjustments to enhance the music, morph, add effectsÖ Some years ago, to do these steps, they had to resort to many types of equipment. In this case, the results obtained take a lot of the engineersí time and labor. However, today, thanks to high-end technologies, recording engineers can apply modern equipment to make their work easier and more professional. One simple example, with a PC and some installed music Morpher, music editor software, they can mix and edit music like a skilled recording engineer.
On the other side of this job, creativity is also essential. The music industry is a particular one that requires creativity. The recording engineer must feel the sense of music that can create different and unique sounds that express music best. With the same song recorded by two engineers, we have two ways to express the music, which depend on the recording workers’ creativity. The recording engineer can apply some intelligent software specialized in performing a good job. Sometimes, just by adding a wave sound, increasing the frequency, or reducing the music’s noise, we have colored the recordings.
More and more recording engineers believe in the important role of high-end technologies in their careers. They are willing to spend money on equipment, modern music editor, or music Morpher software to support their work. Some people pay up to thousands of dollars for their recording studios, but some know how to save money. They find out the efficient software that can work properly as a mixer, an editor with a very competitive price from $30 to $100. They know how to update their ìcompanionî by frequently downloading the latest effects or supporting programs. In this way, high-tech supports for both professional recording studios and some home recording studios.
ìA war is happening, not the Iraq war, but the high-tech warî. However, we will not perish in this war if we know how to use and control technologies for our purposes. Holding in hand the weapons of music software, we will be the unique winner, the best one in the entertainment industry’s running, especially the recording industry.
