Dolby Unveils New App To Record Sound In High Quality


Monday, September 23rd, 2019 |

Making good quality field recordings with your phone is hard. Often you don’t have the time or space to record with good quality equipment and have to do it when the inspiration strikes. Whether it is a cool sound in the subway, bird chirping on a hike or a fleeting sound from your window, you need to be able to capture the moment when it happens. One problem is always that the sound quality can be pretty rough when using a phone. Dolby is trying to remedy that with a new app called Dolby On.

Dolby On is a free iOS app that lets you record music and video with the help of Dolby technology. It does this in several ways.

It eliminates the background noise, which could be buzzing, white noise or other people ruining your sound. According to the site, “Dolby On’s proprietary dynamic EQ automatically adapts to your music, and stereo widening expands your sound beyond mono.”

The app comes with a slew of ways to boost or enhance the audio. It allows you to go deeper with treble, boost, bass and track trim controls.

You just download the app (free in the US for iOS users) and then tap a button to record the sound. Read more on their website to see how this could work for you and to download.

Having only missed the very first year of WMC in 1985, it was 1986-1990 that initially placed me on the map globally due to the international attendance of the entire dance music community. All throughout the 90s I was often getting written about by various high profile mags and websites for having contributed to help break many artists, DJs, producers and remixers. WMC enabled me to bring many top industry people together all under one roof, especially at Groove Jet, where house music officially met Techno in my sets and it’s all been uphill since…TBC

I feel fortunate to have been part of the first-ever WMC. Over the 35 years, it has grown to give us an international forum where we exchange music and ideas. As an attendee and host of many of the award shows, I am proud each time I see new young talent emerge and then become world-renowned. We all have so many Winter Music Conference moments of hearing a seminal breakthrough record for the first time as well as a new DJ with star quality. Magical moments in my career.

Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”

DJ/Producer

Winter Music Conference was the cream of the crop of conferences. Every label owner, label A&R, DJ and artist knew they had to go network at the Fontainebleau where the conference was hosted. The conference was not only one of the most important time of the year as it relates to dance music but it was also a place where records were broken and became summer hits. Some of my best DJ memories are from the events I played during WMC in the last 20 years.

I’m so glad to see WMC rebooted with such thoughtful content and first-class curation. It’s been a long time since the industry had a must-do American event and this is it. The reborn WMC!
