    DID YOU KNOW?

    The first-ever sound recording device appeared back in 1857? A French printer and bookseller named Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville invented it. He called the device the Phonautograph and it could detect amplitudes of sound. It was able to do this by mimicking the human ear. It gathered the vibrations in sound and transferred it into paper using a moving stylus. Improvements came that enabled for both the recording and playback of the sound. The medium was a waxed based cylindrical storage devised by Alexander Bell. By the 1890s, Gramaphones were the most popular sound recording and playback device. It was also around this time that better mediums appeared in the form of flat discs. It would later become Vinyl and came into use during the 1950s.

    The digital era was well underway in 1977. It was not long before the first digital audio recorder arrived. Sony was the first to make one and it was the PMC-1. Recording and playback devices kept getting more sophisticated and high quality. Soon, virtual audio mixers arrived. It allowed us to do more with our sound. It allowed us to manipulate and mix sound to create effects and melodies. Musicians would take advantage of these tools in their music. Sound designers would use them to create special effects for various media applications. Sound has always been with us since the beginning. Now though, we have the tools to hear and enjoy them better.
