Copyright (edited by Phillipa McGuinness)What rights do artists and creators have in a world where everything is free? Copyright is one of the central economic and creative issues of our time. We expect to be able to log on and read, watch or listen to anything, anywhere, anytime. Then copy it, share it, quote it, sample it, remix it. Does this leave writers, designers, filmmakers, musicians, photographers, artists and game developers with any rights at all?
Critical listening skills for audio professionalsAudio productions are made or broken by the skills of the recording engineer's ears. The ability to take what those ears hear, properly discern the sound, and then act accordingly to fix any subtle recorded audio problems, makes all the difference in the quality of the final tracks and master. The ability to instantly identify frequencies, hear hidden distortions, and instinctively reconcile conflicts in the EQ of instruments, audio elements, vocals and more are traits to those who have mastered the art of audio production.
