  Sound recording and reproduction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sound recording and reproduction is the electrical or mechanical re-creation and/or amplification of sound, often as music.
The invention of the compact cassette in the 1960's, followed by the walkman, gave a major boost to the mass distribution of music recordings, and the invention of digital recording and the compact disc in 1983 brought massive improvements in ruggedness and quality.
Multitrack recording makes it possible to capture sound from several microphones, or from different 'takes' to tape or disc with maximum headroom and quality, allowing maximum flexibility in the mixing and mastering stages for editing, level balancing, compressing and limiting, and the addition of effects such as reverberation, equalisation, flanging and many more.

Generally, in recording, the sound waves impinge on a microphone and are converted into an electrical signal that is recorded by a tape recorder.
For stereophonic sound the stylus vibrates vertically, as well as from side to side, recording one sound channel in the left wall of the groove and one in the right.
The sound to be recorded is converted into an electrical signal that is used to modulate the intensity of a beam of light.

 Acoustical Society of America 138th Meeting Lay Language Papers
Ideally, the sound field at the ears of the listener resembles the sound field of a live performance, including ambiance cues to the acoustical character of a performance space.
Reproduction: Because the loudspeaker systems for individual instruments are physically separate and can be placed appropriately in the listener's room, the radiation pattern of the ensemble can approximate the pattern of instruments in space.
Recordings are made with contact transducers as usual and, using a separate recorder, with acoustical microphones.

 Copyright Law and Sound Recording   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Sound recordings are defined in the law as "works that result from the fixation of a series of musical, spoken, or other sounds, but not including the sounds accompanying a motion picture or other audiovisual work." Common examples include recordings of music, drama, or lectures.
Copyright in a sound recording protects the particular series of sounds "fixed" (embodied in a recording) against unauthorized reproduction and revision, unauthorized distribution of phonorecords containing those sounds, and certain unauthorized performances by means of a digital audio transmission.
Generally speaking, for a new sound recording to be a work made for hire, it must be made by an employee within his or her scope of employment.

Sir Isaac Newton - (late 1660's) formulated a relationship between the speed of sound in a medium and the density and compressibility in a medium.
The essential components of sound recording and reproduction are the microphone, speaker and amplifier.
A precaution that we take to protect ourselves and the environment from the dangers of sound waves is using a muffler on a car, to help quiet car engines, wearing ear plugs when a loud noise is constantly around us.

 Acoustical Society of America - The Wave Theory of Sound
Such areas as speech, music, sound recording and reproduction, telephony, sound reinforcement, audiology, architectural acoustics, and noise control have strong association with the sensation of hearing.
Gassendi (a contemporary of Mersenne and Galileo), for example, argued that sound is due to a stream of "atoms" emitted by the sounding body; velocity of sound is the speed of atoms; frequency is number emitted per unit time.
The theory ultimately proposed for sound in the eighteenth century was incomplete from many standpoints, but modern theories of today can be regarded for the most part as refinements of that developed by Euler and his contemporaries.

 Ambiophonic Principles for the Recording and Reproduction of Surround Sound for Music
A) Binaural methods: the sound field is originally recorded with some sort of dummy head microphone, and reproduced by delivering the recorded signals unaltered to the entrances of the ear canals of the listener.
The common binaural methods are very sensitive to both the shape and directional characteristics of the original microphone employed for the recording and of the particular human head of the listener [1].
Thus a pure binaural technique is limited to the amateur recording of live music, and is obviously not applicable to the reproduction of the large catalogue of already existing recordings often made using a so-called stereo microphone which is usually inherently unsuitable for binaural reproduction especially via earphones.

 Emile Berliner and the Birth of the Recording Industry: The Gramophone
Discs had a constant deep groove with the sound vibrations on its walls, therefore the stylus could fit down into the groove and the groove itself would pull the stylus (with its attached tone arm and horn) across the face of the disc.
Recordings were made in both Washington and Philadelphia, stampers were made in the Washington laboratory, pressings were made by Duranoid, and sales were handled from New York.
One of the few existing catalogs of their records, in the Library of Congress's collections, shows that a Wonder record was simply a copy of a Berliner record but with the numeral "1" added to the disc number.

During the war, the Allies became aware of radio broadcasts that seemed to be transcriptions (much of this due to the work of Richard_H._Ranger), but their audio quality was indistinguishable from that of a live broadcast and their duration was far longer than was possible with 78rpm discs.
The next major development in magnetic tape was multitrack recording, in which the tape is divided into multiple tracks parallel with each other.
Much of the credit for the development of multitrack recording goes to guitarist, composer and technician Les Paul, who also designed the famous electric guitar that bears his name.

Gray has also contributed to the maintaining of the alignment standards in motion picture theaters and is best recognized for his achievement of the highest quality optical sound reproduction, particularly at the Academy Theater in Hollywood.
He headed the development team that created the Sonics DDP digital sound playback systems and is a pioneer in the development of digital sound for motion pictures.
The system allowed the director to use streams of sound impressionistically, and the film became a watershed in the industry for its pronounced effect of coincident speech and sound.

In other words, a microphone will alter the way a sound wave sounds because it is difficult to match the response of a microphone to that of the human ear.
The sound was no doubt recorded as an analogue signal, and someone in cyberspace had converted them to digital files.
Potentially this technology will provide such devices as hearing aids, sound systems, and telephones with the ability to not only enhance their reproduction, but also diminish the artifacts produced by the instrument that recorded the sound, and the surrounding environment.
