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.
