Brand new technology extracts sample sets from organ CDs

Postby adri » Mon Apr 01, 2019 3:13 am

The audio labs at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.), under the leadership of organ enthusiast J.S. Brooks, in collaboration with Audio Research Labs (A.L.R.), under the leadership of the very bright Nicholas Teslases and Albert Zweistone, have developed a way to extract individual notes/pitches/stops from organ CDs, which enables the production of sample sets within an hour. Missing notes will be filled in by copying adjacent notes and retuning them.

Once this software is available to the public, which will be exactly one year from today, for the low price of $314.15, you will be able to convert any organ you have on CD to a fantastic sample set.

Stay tuned.........(or not; your choice.....)

The next step is to extract samples from strongly dispersed sound waves. As the technology develops, the following is expected to be possible:

-Recording at high levels of ambient noise
-Recording at a distance. For example, you might place the recording microphone outside the church building
-Recording from the past. For example, samples can be extracted from the reverb after a concert

Imagine that one time you will be able to record the St Sulpice from your home. Or hear Jean Guillou playing live again. Or even Bach...

The price of $314.15 seems a little high. :roll: :lol: Assume CD quality means 16 bit?

OTOH, we were taught that energy (even sound) is never lost, only changed. Now if all that sound is out there "somewhere" we should, with the right technology, be able to convert it back into something we can use (again).. :shock:

Might as well dream big. After all, the neat stuff we take for granted and use today started with someone's dream. 8) That includes Hauptwerk thanks to Martin.

Forum Administrator: As far as I am concerned, you can delete this entire thread, as April 1 is now well behind us!
