Why Is Audio Restoration Software Important?

Ever wonder what it takes for music, film and television to sound so clear and pleasing to our ears? We can guarantee that the first audio recording is not what you hear as the final product. Just think of how the air conditioning units, electrical buzzing from the power supply and car sirens or horns in the background would sound in the final production of your favorite song or movie. You can thank expert audio engineers and their restoration software for taking care of these undesirable sounds and creating “music to your ears”!

With home recording on the rise due to factors such as low budgets and little time, “dirty audio” is becoming more prevalent as well. Just think, while you may decide to belt out your latest song in your room it wasn’t built to filter out extraneous sounds.

That’s why you need to call in the experts who have a plethora of knowledge with audio restoration software. That’s where we come in! Our audio engineers have the latest technology and know exactly what it takes to make your event sound spectacular. We’ll provide you with the crystal clear sound you have been searching for!

The Future of Audio News

If you had to guess the most popular way people listen to audio in their cars which method would you choose? With so many options, from satellite radio to smartphone streaming, chances are you wouldn’t choose traditional terrestrial radio, right? After all, more and more new cars are making it possible to connect to the internet where you can access just about anything, and we mean anything!

While some believe traditional radio news is on the verge of becoming obsolete, others “see an opportunity to reshape how news and information are conveyed,” according to Current. However, listening to traditional radio news may not be as traditional as you may think. Rivet Radio has created an app accessible via iOS and Android devices where users can set preferences and create news playlists based on what they want to hear as well as their location.

It’s important to keep in mind that we spend lots of time traveling via automobile and we all need something to keep us busy. Although advancements in technology are fast and ever changing, I’m sure we can all agree that we will continue listening to audio in our cars for years and years to come.

For High Resolution Audio, Does The Format Really Matter?

MP3, FLAC, WAV. does it really make a difference? When it comes to listening to music, high-resolution audio is the way to go. But what’s more important, the quality of the gear used to record or the format?

Before we get into the details, it’s vital to point out that sound quality is determined by the quality of the gear used to record and the skill and expertise of the audio engineers. If you have bad equipment and the audio engineer doesn’t have much experience, chances are the audio won’t sound very good.

You can think of it all in terms of a high-definition television. Look at the difference between a sporting event or a movie broadcasted in HD and then compare it to a black and white film from the 60s. Even if you transferred the old movie to a 1080 Blu-ray, it wouldn’t make the film any clearer and the same holds true for audio.

When it comes down to it, high-resolution audio files are more expensive than standard definition files, so is it worth it? There are a few things to consider before making a decision:

  • Do you have high quality speakers or headphones?
  • Is the recording good enough to benefit from high resolution mastering?
  • Will the audience or listeners be able to tell the difference?
