Flash Back to Audio Technology 1985

Interesting how times have really changed.

20 years ago I was editing voice recordings done in a studio in the same location on a 2 track Scully Reel to Reel tape recorder. I would then edit the narration using a rasor blade and splicing block.

Yesterday I recorded a narration by telephone with someone in Wisconsin and I am in Montreal, QC, Canada. It was recorded on a computer and edited using a program called sound forge. Then I uploaded the final files onto my server and the client in wisconsin downloaded them.

Today, 1 day later, they are a final CD for sale to subscribers.

Gotta love it!

PS: I was paid within an hour of completion through electronic banking....
