The Revolution Of High-Tech Recording Industry Discussed by Nadel Paris

Today, music is one of the biggest entertainment industries in the world. This market is hotter for many reasons. First of all, customers’ 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 very large pool of tough competition, and of course, to survive, they have to be unique and distinguished.

 

We can list out here with 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 publishers of sheet music dominated the music business. With a quick development pace, recording industry gradually dominated and controlled the music industry. This is the kind of mass-production copies’ 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? Of course, though technologies change very fast every day, people still make the choice of high-tech applications as the best way to affirm their positions in the music market.

 

Regarding recording industry, we consider that this is not only a technical but also a creative career. High-end technology is useful for both sides of this job. Recording engineer 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 want to have. A good microphone is necessary in the first step to begin with the recording process. And then, with the instruments, they find out the expected sounds – not music. The recording engineer, finally, will make the adjustments to enhance the music, morph, add effects… Some years ago, in order to do these steps, they had to resort to many equipment. In this case, the results obtained take a lot of the engineers’ time and labor. However, today, thanks to the development of high-end technologies, recording engineer 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.

 

In the other side of this job, creativity is also very important. Music industry is a very specific one that requires creativity. The recording engineer must have the feeling, the sense of music that can create different and unique sounds that express music in the best way. With the same song recorded by two engineers, we have two ways to express the music which depend on the creativity of the recording workers. The recording engineer can apply some intelligent software specialized to perform a good job. Sometimes, just by adding a wave sound, increasing the frequency or reducing the noise of the music, we have colored up the recordings.

 

More and more recording engineers believe in the important role of high-end technologies for their career. 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 very competitive price from $30 to $100. They know how to update their “companion” by frequently downloading the latest effects or supporting programs. By this way, high-tech supports for both professional recording studios and some home recording studios.

 

“A war is happening, not the Iraq war, but the high-tech war”. 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 running of entertainment industry, especially recording industry.

Cool Thing in The World of EDM: “Trap Music”

Caught in a trap? Music that catches you and doesn’t let you go. What a weird name though, you must be wondering what the hype behind trap music is? After all, it is quite similar to dubstep and we all know just how big an impact dubstep has made on the music industry.

Many artists are defining music as the new dubstep; it certainly has become the new craze in the industry. Although the history of the genre dates back to a decade ago, it has only recently started to gain recognition and hype.

Many people consider the fact that since trap’s crossover to EDM it has started to grow in demand with sold out glow-sticked arenas due to EDM Trap’s popularity. The major reason why this genre has been ambushed by the world is the transformation trap music has gone through, with not as much rapping and more feet moving beats involved in the songs.

To get a better understanding of music, it could be broken down and described as a combination of dubstep, hip hop, and dance music.

So basically what kind of music is trap music? Traditionally it’s a term generally used to describe hip hop music from the Southern regions of America. Music has pretty much become identifiable with Hip-hop and takes influence from the rap sound in the South.

Trap has become a raging craze with the masses of people at clubs, parties and underground gigs. It is no surprise that it is such a big hit with the people considering the music is so likeable and trap stylings can be injected into any form or style of music. No wonder it has caught everybody in its trap much faster than dubstep or electro and it’s fairly simple to see why.

By now, you have probably heard of the many different trap trends like “Trapstep” or “Dubstrap” – Everyone has their own names and definitions, but most agree that this new phenomena of trap music may just be the next “BIG THING”.

As a genre, trap is adaptable, flexible and in many ways infinite. But some people disagree and say that trap is ultimately hip hop music even if you mix it up with dubstep. Nothing out of the ordinary some may say.

For now this genre is the most hyped and talked about music, but wasn’t it just a couple of years ago that Dubstep was ruling the music industry, it seems like music is living up to its hype right now but who knows where it will stand in a couple years.

Many Producers and DJs have come up with their own styles and sounds to define the genre. But there is no doubt about the fact that, trap music as a genre is definitely growing and evolving into a style of its own.

Electronic Dance Music – From Public Nuisance to a Respectable Profession

Just two decades ago, people used to get horrified with the tales tabloids used to tell of drug fueled profligacy linked to electronic dance music. Two decades later, seeking a DJing or rapping career or following the hip hop culture has become the new “in thing” among the youngsters.

So how did the public opinion on electronic dance music change so dramatically in such a short span of time? Let’s take a look at what it was before and where it stands today.

The Rave Scene

When electronic dance music first entered America in the 1990’s, it was not adopted because of the rave way in which it was being presented by the artists. It was isolated and fallen apart and was largely associated with underground rave parties.

Expansion

As more time passed by, hip hop artists as well as electronic dance music began to attract a new group of people and incorporated new and innovative genres of music into it. It began to have a wider appeal to people because it directly addressed the lives of the people involved.

Open Acceptance

Today, no matter if it’s a 16 year old school going music lover, or a 35 year old Wall Street professional, EDM has swept away everyone alike. It has exploded in an era where social media, huge festivals, cheap music technology and information about the hip hop artists is all at the finger tips of this generation.

Preference over Traditional Bands

Today, rather than going to the concerts of traditional pop and rock bands, people prefer attending an event where they could enjoy electronic dance music. DJ’s and hip hop artists have begun to make a lot more than professional singers, and the trend continues to grow at a rapid pace.

No One Uses the R-word anymore

With all the white dress codes combined with super expensive sets, the big club nights can really no longer be called ‘raves’. If there is the next big dance event coming up in your town, there is no way that a big-name DJ is not making an appearance. Hip hop artists have rightly earned the reputation of knowing their audience and thus the music is exactly according to their taste.

The dance music culture is becoming a rising commercial tide, and with it, it has introduced several impressive names such as Nadel Paris that have totally revolutionized what EDM stood for just two decades ago.

Nadel Paris is a music producer, recording artist, musician and her music is a mix between different styles: Dance, EDM, Pop, Urban …etc. She is making her statement as a female vocalist and a sole composer of all her songs and hope that it will inspire many others to do the same. You can listen to her songs on itunes, spotify or on amazon.
