I write this fresh from MusicTech’s annual sojourn to Anaheim, California where, once again, we were lucky enough to spend some hands-on time with a wealth of brand-new music technology, set for release at various points throughout 2019.

The show was an eye-opening experience for various reasons: aside from the pure, giddy thrill of getting to see and hear what the industry has in store for us this year, it was wonderful to see so much eagerness, across the industry, to empower today’s music maker, whatever their budgets and creative ideas may be. This has always been our own modus operandi and it’s heartening to see the same mindset pervading the music-technology landscape.

It then offers brief insights into the human speech production system and its modeling, which are required to produce artificial speech. It also discusses various components of an automatic speech recognition (ASR) system.

Describing the chronological developments in ASR systems, and briefly examining the statistical models used in ASR as well as the related mathematical deductions, the book summarizes a number of state-of-the-art classification techniques and their application in audio/speech classification.

"SP1200: The Art And The Science" is the first book ever written for the inimitable SP-1200, hip-hop's most iconic drum machine/sampler. Certified by E-Mu Systems, this book celebrates 40 years of the SP1200

"In the chapters to come, PBODY will guide you through the world of the SP1200, its history, its underlying technology, and both conventional and unconventional techniques for making music with it. I am personally honored to have played a key role in creating such a time-honored instrument, and I must confess how delightful it has been to have a chance to pour over the schematics again and recall the whole design experience. I hope you'll have as much fun reading as I and the whole E-mu gang did in producing the SP1200. Enjoy!"

What is a Production Company?
A production company is a company that oversees the creation of a movie or music, TV commercials, documentaries, music videos or other media. They are there from start to finish during the process of making the product. The production company handles cinematography of a pic, sound effects of music and much more. Without the production company it's unacceptable to make an excellent pic or an excellent sound. They are needed by all who have plans to get their creative decisions out there and brought to life.
The nice thing about these companies is that they will make sure the movie or song has some continuity with it. There are so many different separate parts to the company that it would be easy for it to all get mixed up on its own. The production company looks at the product, adds what is needed, and sends out a great piece that is put together perfectly.

MIXING MAGIC
It’s amazing to think that not so long ago, the ability to automate fader levels and mutes on a hardware mixer represented state-of-the-art technology. The arrival of the software DAW changed all that, and now we can automate pretty much any parameter we like.

That’s good news, of course, but all this flexibility doesn’t necessarily make the production process any quicker. Thankfully, a number of forward-thinking plugin designers have coupled that conceptual approach with some analysisbased number crunching, and developed smart, ‘intelligent’ tools that go beyond basic tone and dynamics shaping. These processors can’t mix our tracks for us, but they can provide assistance and feedback, and improve efficiency, by helping us get things right. What’s more, by demonstrating what’s possible, they can also help us to expand our knowledge and understanding. In this feature, we’re going to spread the net pretty wide, taking in everything from the latest raft of real-time ‘smart’ EQs to the more established automatic vocal level-riding plugins.
