Anything else is just too many layers of turtles to make comparison valuable. Wow, the entire exchange above is likely to convince more aspiring makers that the hobby is full of self righteous jerks.

A few economical components, and only a handful of connections between them. Report comment. They will start to think about changes and improvements, they will learn more about the bits and the code, they will try things, make changes… For me it was Remco electrical panels with lights, switches and buzzers, and later a in-1 electronics kit.
I think Arduino is a great platform to get your feet wet enough to continue to other languages. Same every time somebody says similar stuff about coding in python.

This was when I was working on CD pre-mastering equipment.
These drives would guarantee continuous streaming access. Standard hard drives in that segment would have to resync their servo track every few minutes due to heat the platters would expand in size. To the discussions re: audio quality. The techniques have improved considerably over time and with more processing power. Probably the source material was worse too. I do the same. Oddly enough I tend to use the best quality rips for the phone because I tend to use earphones with that.
My car and RV have enough noises etc that the rips can be pretty sloppy and still not be offensive. They did so in order to push people to adopt their new patented format, and get money flowing into their pockets again. In I read in a little news column that Phillips was working on a disc with pits read by a laser, it had no name.
Just 16 bits, no way! In an age of megabit drives they should have waited rather than deal with the mess they have made. MPEG, the folks that put a round one in a square hole and hammered it in tight. Add to that the vault fire and lots have been lost to the future. Love the article, except for the comment about how Facebook defeated MySpace.
Facebook defeated MySpace through a ruse. Once they suckered everyone, they opened it up their family members and became the juggernaut they are now. It was clean and usable, and while they kept making it more difficult with each version to get back to the classic theme and functionality, each install I would change it all back, even when playing with Linux desktop I imported the classic winamp theme into xmm2. Great for parties — your friend could queue up their favourite track without ruining the rest of the playlist.
Creative pioneered the mp3 player with their ZEN player, then Apple came along and stole the patent and idea from them to make the iPod. Creative sued Apple and Apple had to pay Creative. Brilliant patent!! Google even preemptively sued Creative in just in case. I used all of the software shown above Winamp was my favorite and also had the Diamond Rio player! I remember reaching the milestone of over 24 hours of unique music. I used a digital master of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and some of the other original ones were also classics since the text of those were public domain and we had no royalties to pay from using it.
We were planning to distribute them via CD-R, and I was tasked with picking the optimal bitrate and format, and calculated the capacity of a MB disc at that bitrate. Along with some probably now defunct metadata, we could fit most books on one disc, extra long unabridged books could take two. The studio recorded the voiceover in mono, so even if intro music may have been in stereo, to save space we mastered the MP3 files in mono. Now this was somewhere close to 20 years ago, and encoder software has changed a lot in that time, so the results may vary if this experiment were done today.
I should try to buy it and find out. You can take my Pontis SP from my cold dead hands! Streaming is nice but wait till that serverfarm is no more and all your music is gone, i can still listen to my favorites streaming in from my very own CF card. Winamp it really whips the lamas aSS :P Best music player ever, I still use it Today and plan to use it for the next 20 years as well. I think this is clearly shows that we do NOT have to replace good old things with new shiny actually shittier technologies such as:.
That limit was only reached because ever smaller blocks of IPv4 addresses were given out to different locations. I think MP3 and other encoding formats will always beat streaming in one thing: you need connectivity in order to play music, i. Plus, as others said in the comments, for Streaming you need to rely on a service provided by someone who could decide to shut down the servers at any moment, and you favorite music is gone.
I have Spotify Premium but if i like enough songs on an album ill buy a CD of it and rip it to flac. Some reasonably well known pop group made a song about what they thought about the music industry. Back in , there was a high-profile murder case in Belgium, where a schoolboy was stabbed to death for refusing to hand over his MP3 player to his assailants.
The killer was caught on security cams, apprehended and sentenced to 20 years in prison. I probably need to re-rip those and update to a more modern format. To this day, there still does not exist a format that provides a universally supported container for both uncompressed PCM and the requisite metadata.
Now, I can hear bad encoding even when listening in the car. I would even go as far as saying that an Echo Dot has higher fidelity than an old soundcard with those beige desktop Creative speakers. Also I made th first portable mp3 player on with and old computer and wireless keyboard.Explore releases from The Zero Point at Discogs.
