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.

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!

Miami has always been a place I’ve considered home and WMC was essential for me and the label in many ways. From showcasing our new music to keeping up with all the new artists and releases. It was the official kickoff of the year and I’m happy to see it thriving again.

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.

DJ / Producer / Label Boss - Subliminal Records

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.

WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.
