Dolby tries to realize high-quality voice recording on your phone.

Dolby has been working on a new mobile app for recording and cleaning up audio under the codename “234”.

Familiar with the Brand Dolby?

It’s the Brand most of us know from going to the cinemas.

Dolby creates audio, visual, and voice technologies for cinemas, home theaters, PCs, mobile devices, and games.

The company developed a lot of groundbreaking technologies in the field of:

  • Audio encoding/compression
  • Audio processing
  • Video processing
  • Digital cinema 
  • Live sound


But the company’s success all started with the invention of the Dolby Noise Reduction System, a form of audio signal processing for reducing the background hissing sound on audio tape recordings.

All skills that come in handy when you’re trying to turn a smartphone into a recording studio.

Dolby has been working on a new mobile app for recording and cleaning up audio under the codename “234,” first brought to the attention by TechCrunch. 

Unfortunately, the signup site has been deactivated. I would have loved to share some samples to discuss the quality of the app because I’m extremely curious. It almost sounds too good to be true; an audio app that cleans up the sound, gives it tone and space, and finds the ideal loudness but it definitely makes sense.

Audio content is more accessible than ever before and the opportunity to capitalize on the emergent power of audio keeps growing.

The end of unintelligible crappy recordings is near.

Let it Beeb

Did you know that this is the sound of Canon AE-1? So anytime you take a photo on your iPhone, you actually hear the sound of a Canon AE-1. Ever since I know this I think about Canon every time I hear somebody taking a picture with an iPhone. The AE-1 was manufactured by Canon in Japan from April 1976 to 1984. It was the first in what became a complete overhaul of Canon’s line of SLRs.

3D Audio

3D audio is the digital recreation of sound we hear everyday in the real world. It’s always around us and it can come from any direction. This is what we call spatial sound. It combines the interactions between acoustic sound waves, the space and interactions with our head and ears. Most immersive audio concepts have existed for decades. But the interest in immersive audio has increased enormously in recent years…

More Creators, Do We Need Them?

Software is a great combination between artistry and engineering. – Bill Gates. The term engineering is derived from the Latin ingenium, meaning “cleverness” and “to contrive, devise”. To plan, or invent by careful thought. This inspired me. These days a lot of people call themselves a creator. To “create” means to put something into existence.
