I’ve been having a blast making electronic music with my computer since I was a kid. With the help of a MIDI keyboard and some clever software, I can make sounds come out of my computer that bring me joy and give me ideas for future creations.
My brother, who is also a musician, recently bought himself some Beats By Dre headphones (the Studio model). I tried them out and was blown away by their sound quality. I had no idea they were so good! They are extremely comfortable to wear, and they make listening to music on your computer or iPod a lot more enjoyable.
In this blog post, I will be linking to two songs of mine that were made using my brother’s Beats By Dre headphones. Both songs have been written in the key of D minor. The first song is called “Bonus Beats” and the second one is called “By Dre”.
For the past year, Beats By Dre has been running a campaign called “Straight Outta” in which artists from Compton and other cities immortalized in rap lyrics make music that pays tribute to their hometowns.
The latest installment of this campaign features Compton rapper Dr. Dre, who paid tribute to his hometown with a trailer for his upcoming album, Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre.
In the trailer, Dre says that he was inspired by the city of Compton itself, and that he wanted to create an album that pays homage to it.
“I know there are so many people who have been waiting for me to come out with another album,” he says. “And I can’t wait to share it with them.”
In addition to the video, Beats By Dre released a new song called “Dre’s Theme,” featuring Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar.
“This is one of my favorite new tracks. Great use of the headphones!”
“I disagree with this reviewer.”
“Why did you choose to use the headphones? Do you feel they perform better in this genre than in others?”
If you are a music lover, you will want to read this post.
Music is a form of art that brings out the emotions and feelings of individuals. It is something that can be heard by anyone and it comes in different forms. Today, there are various types of music genres that are being heard all over the world.
Some people listen to music for entertainment while others do so for relaxation purposes. With the help of headphones, it is now possible for people to listen to their favorite tunes anywhere and anytime they want.
If you have not tried listening to music using headphones, then this post is for you. You will learn about the history of headphones and how they came into existence. Headphones were invented in 1910 by Nathaniel Baldwin who was an American inventor from Ogden, Utah.
It was the first time R&B met the electronic music of Kraftwerk and Giorgio Moroder in a way that made sense to the engineers who would soon make beats for Dr. Dre, DJ Premier, Timbaland and Kanye West.
“I’m not just talking about drum machines,” says Daniel J. Levitin, author of “This Is Your Brain On Music: The Science of a Human Obsession.” “It’s also the idea of sampling from recordings, rather than just playing instruments live. That was revolutionary.”
The album was officially released on June 1, 1973 by Epic Records. After its release, it went on to be certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for sales in excess of 500,000 copies in the United States.
The first electronic music was made with computers. This genre of music has grown tremendously since the early days of the computer. The first computer to produce an actual piece of music was called the CSIRAC and it was made in Australia by Trevor Pearcey and Maston Beard. It was the world’s first programmable, fully electronic computer.
The CSIRAC was made in 1949 and used vacuum tube technology, not digital technology like we use today. It had very limited storage capacity, but it did play some short tunes. This is one of its most famous pieces:
Another early machine worth mentioning is the MELODYNE. It was created by Jean Claude Risset in 1961 and can be seen as a precursor to current synthesizers like the Korg MS-20, Roland TR-808 and Moog Minimoog. It had a keyboard with knobs for adjusting pitch and timbre on each key.
The next big leap forward in electronic music came with the invention of microprocessors in the late 1960s and early 1970s. These small chips allowed computers to store data and run programs that could make sounds using only electricity instead of mechanical parts (like tape drives or vinyl records). One example was Donald Buchla’s Buchla Series 100 modular synthes
