The Producer’s Vocab #2
“Because half the battle in understanding… is the language that we use.”
Hi-fi Transcription Turntable: High fidelity refers to a quality of sound that approaches the “perfect” reproduction of audio, as distinguished from the degraded sound reproduction of the phonautograph, phonograph, and gramophone.  As vinyl became a popular recording medium and “stereo recording and playback” evolved in the mid-1900s, “transcription disks” became common for recording radio transmissions, and the transcription turntable eventually dominated over the gramophone.  -TPM, Wikipedia
Vinyl (pictured): The older cousin of Berliner discs.  Vinyl became very popular in the 1900s as a recording medium, and its mass reproduction “sealed the market dominance” of the turntable.  Originally used for recording radio broadcasts, vinyl became “the storage medium of choice for recorded music” by the 1940s and is still in use today. -TPM
Recording Tape: A recording medium developed in Germany that “came into use during World War 2…[and] works by storing the changing electrical source signal from a microphone as corresponding changes in magnetic charge along the length of a flexible tape coated with magnetic metal oxide.” -TPM

The Producer’s Vocab #1
"Because half the battle in understanding… is the language that we use."
Phonautograph (pictured): "A mechanical device, invented in 1857 by Edouard-Leon Scott de Martinville, able to record sound via a mechanical pen recorder that traced sound vibrations collected via a diaphragm at the end of a horn onto a paper roll." -TPM
Phonograph: A more successful version of the phonautograph, created by Thomas Edison in the late 1800s.  It “again used a mechanical horn and diaphragm to collect the sound…experimented with metal foil, lead, and wax as a recording media, but…suffered significant degradation when replayed.” -TPM
Gramophone: Created by Emile Berliner, and “tackled the problem of degradation using the familiar flat [Berliner] disk with its familiar spiral groove…the discs were much easier to duplicate—allowing the pressing of records on a mass scale for the first time.” -TPM
Now we partly know where Gramophonedzie gets his name from!
