Digital Audio File Formats – Lossy Vs. Lossless

5455340042 c354bcd541 m Digital Audio File Formats   Lossy Vs. Lossless
by MacMan-2256

We’ve come a long way from toting around cases of cassette tapes for our vehicles. While there’s part of us that never wants to let go of that mix tape, or that Van Halen or Madonna collection, you can’t ignore the fact that we’ve gone digital. Analog still has its place, even if it’s just to revisit old times, but most of the audio and music we deal with now is in a digital format.

 Digital Audio File Formats   Lossy Vs. Lossless

Not all digital audio is the same however; not only can it be found in variable compression formats but because we deal in so many different types of technology and how that data is read, there are numerous digital audio formats.

Those digital audio formats, also referred to as codecs (MP3, WMA, AAC, AIFF, etc.) are grouped into two different categories; Lossless and Lossy. Regardless of where it’s grouped however, a codec is named such because of its overall function. Codec= compression + decompression of music into digital audio files.

Working with Lossless Codecs

With Lossless Codecs, every bit of the musical data and information that forms the overall audio file is maintained and preserved upon compression. That data is then stored for retrieval. When compared to other audio, lossless codecs offers up the highest audio fidelity with the crispest digital sound.

The unfortunate downside is that the files they create can become expansive and rather large. Depending on the size of your music server or drive, you could be limited with the number of songs you can store. As technology continues to advance however this is becoming less of an issue. Terabyte external drives and small portable drives and players exceeding 500 gigabytes will have little problem with storage capacity.

The most common Lossless Codecs:

Windows Media Lossless – this codec is built into newer versions of Windows Media Player software from Microsoft and is widely supported by a number of other media adapter systems.

Apple Lossless – Of course Microsoft has its competitor in Apple. This codec is included in the iTunes software and the Apple Lossless Encoder is their answer to the Windows Media Lossless.

Free Lossless Audio codec (FLAC) – Wherever there is something commercial there can often be found something free. As the name implies the FLAC is a codec that is free on the digital market. It’s widely supported, and a few of the audio players that support the free codec includes the Sonos Digital Music System and Slim Devices (of course there are numerous others).

Working with Lossy Codecs:

When you’re dealing with data compression, you can expect some loss of data. Lossy codecs discard some of the music information intentionally in order to reduce the size of the audio file. This is done for a variety of reasons including the reduction of overall size in order to allow more digital files to be stored. Likewise, size reduction makes it easy to move files over the web. To the human ear, listening to the music on a run of the mill audio system won’t reveal much difference. If you play the sound through a quality sound or home theater system you can begin to pick up the subtle difference in quality and tone.

The most common Lossy Codecs:

MP3 – Also known as MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 (Motion Picture Experts Group). As the concept of digital music grew, it was the mp3 that took over as the preferred format due to the great compression ratio. Because of its widespread acceptance, it’s the most common digital music codec on PC’s and digital music systems. Most equipment including Compact Disc players and digital file recorders/players are designed to read this codec. Proof is in the fact that most people refer to portable music devices “Mp3 players”.

WMA – Windows Media Audio is the standard audio format used on the Windows operating system and Windows Media Player as well as compatible hardware. While it’s possible to use a lossless version of WMA, most files use and rely on lossy compression systems.

AAC – While most audio formats can be read across different systems, even Mac, Apple Computers iTunes Store uses the Advanced Audio Codec (AAC) as the default codec for music that’s been encoded using the iTunes app. Like Windows Media Audio, AAC files fall under the Lossy category. You can however access a lossless codec within the iTunes system known as Apple Lossless.

Other Common Formats

WAV files were a common format among PC users in the 90′s and are still a widely used format. The quality of a .wav file is equivalent to that of a Compact Disc and is used by many audio professionals when recording and editing music. The downside is that .wav files are lossless and as such the files are very large in size. A .wav file is about 10 megabytes for every minute of audio, making it a poor choice when storing many songs on a small capacity audio player.

Like .wav files popular for PC users, the .aiff format is a popular lossless format for the Apple user. The format was developed by Apple in 1988 in conjunction with Electronic Arts and was widely used on the Amiga systems and Mac computers. Like .wav files, standard .aiff is used on the professional level with audio and video apps and, like .wav files, it is uncompressed leading to large files.

Choosing a codec

Which codec you ultimately choose depends on a few factors including where you get your music, the device you play your music on and of course your personal preference. Although most stores sold WMA and AAC formats because of the ability to digitally protect the files with DRM (digital rights management) encoding. most stores nowadays have switched to the more generic MP3 audio file. MP3 files are not protected but are generally lesser quality files.

If you have a high quality sound system with high storage capacity you’ll likely enjoy the fidelity offered by lossless codecs. If you pipe music through your stereo system from a computer you’ll need to give some consideration to the software you use, as many have a limited number of supported codecs.

How The Computer?s Graphical User Interface Was Introduced

2871183581 a0354ae107 m How The Computer?s Graphical User Interface Was Introduced
by Nic’s events


Throughout the computer’s history designers have been developing, with varying degrees of success, other human-computer interaction methods that utilize more general, widespread, and easier-to-learn capabilities: voice and handwriting. Systems that recognize human speech and handwriting now exist, although they still lack the universalityand richness of typed input.

In the 1970s, another dialog alternative surfaced. Research at Xerox’s Palo Alto Research Center provided an alternative to the typewriter — an interface that uses a form of human gesturing, the most basic of all human communication methods.

The Xerox systems Altus and STAR introduced the mouse and pointing and selecting as the primary human-computer communication method. The user simply pointed at thescreen, using the mouse as an intermediary. These systems also introduced the graphical user interface as we know it today. Ivan Sutherland from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is given credit for first introducing graphics with his Sketchpad program in 1963. Lines, circles, and points could be drawn on a screen using a light pen. Xerox worked on developing handheld pointing devices in the 1960′s and patented a mouse with wheels in 1970. In 1974 Xerox patented today’s mouse, after a researcher was suddenly inspired to turn a trackball upside down.

Xerox was never able to market STAR successfully, but Apple quickly picked up the concept and the Macintosh, released in 1984, was the first successful mass-market system.

A new concept was born that revolutionized the human-computer interface. This new interface style quickly advanced as other products entered the marketplace. In 1985 Microsoft released Windows 1.0 and Commodore introduced the Amiga 100. In 1987 Apple introduced Macintosh II, the first color Macintosh, and the X Window system became widely available.

IBM’s contribution was the release of their System Application Architecture (including Common User Access) and Presentation Manager, intended as a graphics operating system replacement for DOS. Other developmental milestones include NeXT’s 1988 release of NeXT Step, the first to simulate a three-dimensional screen. Then, in 1989, several UNIX-based GUIs were released, including Open Look by AT & T and Sun Microsystems, and Motif for the Open Software Foundation by DEC and Hewlett-Packard. Open Look possessed an innovative appearance to avoid legal challenges. Finally, through the 1990s and 2000s, a succession of products and upgrades from Microsoft and Apple have appeared.

by dittma_d

Computer hardware has changed a lot over the past 15 years and most computers used to be large and heavy and were very difficult to use because they did not have an operating system. You would have to put in your own code so that you can make the computer operate and most of these old computers were very slow. It is amazing the enhancements that have been made over last few years to computer and the way they affect our life.

Nowadays you can get a computer and all shapes and sizes, finding one that will do just about anything you want is easier than ever before. There is a computer war that is going on right now between Apple and PCs. Some people like one or another for many different reasons so you should try each out and see which one you like the best. Most people say that Apple computers are faster and are less prone to getting viruses.

If you’re looking at getting a PC you should know that there are many companies that make these types of computers. You should also know that most of the parts and software that is available for these are made from different companies as well. Many people like the Apple brand because everything that goes into their computers are made by their own company.

It is amazing how an expensive computers have become. You can now buy a laptop computer for as little as $ 300 and that is a very cheap amount considering just a couple years ago it would cost $ 1200. The more advanced computers get the cheaper they become as well and this is good for the consumer.

Remember if you are in the market for a new computer then you need to search and find which one fits your specific needs the best. Whether you choose an Apple or a PC you should know that computers are faster than they have ever been before and can do just about anything you want them to.

Mac Gamers Want The Best Mac Games

 Mac Gamers Want The Best Mac Games

Best Mac Games Keep Getting Better

Multimedia professionals started off using Mac’s many years ago. They prefer to use Apple computers. When they buy a Mac, they know they’re getting brilliantly clear screens, a sophisticated but easy to use operating system, cutting edge graphics, excellent audio, and a reliable Internet connection.

These are also the very features that computer gamers demand. And with todays game playing being such a popular leisure activity, gamers want the best they can afford within their budgets. Apple has always met these expectations with every model in the Apple Mac range. Children growing up in most public schools these days are using Macs instead of PC’s, so it’s no wonder that they choose to buy the best mac games for their entertainment purposes.

Apple has always kept ahead of games technology. Games do not develop independently of computers, but the best manufacturers push the limits of what is achievable. Gamers can rest assured that with a Mac, they’ll get what they need to enjoy the latest and best mac games games to the fullest. For quite sometimes Windows computers have dominated gaming. Most games are made for Windows with only the most popular titles being ported to the Mac operating system months later. Generally even patches are late for the Mac making the gaming experience very poor compared to what Windows users have had.

Availabilty of Best Mac Games

Many years ago, there was a justified concern that manufacturers were failing to offer games compatible with Apple computers. This situation has completely changed. New games now come in a Mac as well as PC format. There’s no need to convert a PC game for Mac use. Game-playing Mac owners can therefore be confident they won’t lose out. In fact, once they load a new game into a Mac, they know they have a computer that will do it justice. However, the newest breed of Mac Gamers has had enough with not being able to play or join in with the games that their friends are using, because their friends are using PC and they are using Macs. They want to share best mac games and Windows users want them too.

For some time, there have been debates on how to settle this problem and keep everyone happy with the best mac games to play and compete against each other with. However, now there is one type of gaming platform on the web called Steam. Users can purchase and download games from this system digitally without problems. Mac users are now going to have full access to this technology making gaming on a Mac have quite a bit more options.

Whenever games are released on Steam, they will be released for Windows and Mac at the same time. This means that users won’t have to suffer the waiting period that most are used to waiting on for the ports to the Mac platform. Patches will also be released at the exact same time for each type of system. This means that the games will be fixed with the same priority on either system. What is even better about this for Mac users is that the online content with work cross platform. Mac users and Windows users will be able to play online content together. Mac gamers will be able to share the best mac games wit their Windows opponents and likewise. This eliminates the issues that many have where online content might be available but not have as many players online to actually play with.

More than likely this is how gaming for the Mac will work in the future. These content management systems like Steam will become more popular for other operating systems like the Mac and even Linux. Once the games are ported and working with the main platform, then it’s easy to get them to work on other platforms.

Gaming Online and Trial Download Sites Will Still Off the Best Mac Games on the Market

The Internet offers another arena for games players. There are now many online games on various websites, and there’s the chance to play a favourite best mac game with players across the globe. To find and download these online games quickly and successfully, you need a first class web browser. Every Mac comes with Safari, acknowledged as the computer world’s fastest and best way of searching the Internet. Safari helps you locate online games, and the other technology in your Mac ensures you enjoy them to the full.

If you have a game that’s not browser-based but you want to play it online with other people, Apple can help you with GameRanger. This is a free program for Macs that provides you with a multiplayer online gaming service. With the GameRanger program, you can meet other Mac game players (there are more than 260,000 who use the program) and play over 170+of the best Mac games.Downloading the GameRanger program is easy. Once you have it, you can see who is playing what game. If you have your own copy of a game, you can then ask to join in. Alternatively, you can set up your own competition and invite others to become part of it.

**READ THIS BEFORE COMMENTING!(v.5)** [Updated.. AGAIN...] After seeing the latest Gears of War trailer, I made this “extended version” of it. This is NOT an official video. Leave your comments. Clips taken from: www.gametrailers.com Song “Mad World” by Michael Andrews feat. Gary Jules (BOTH of them) and can be found in the Donnie Darko OST. Michael is on piano, Gary’s the vocal. Just so everyone knows… I don’t have Gears or a 360 and I plan on getting a PS3. I request that there be no console wars(PS3 vs 360 vs Wii) in comments. All 3 consoles kick ass. It’s just a matter or preference and how much money you wanna spend. Remember, you’re here to comment on a video… NOT to start a fight between the Sony fans, Microsoft fans and Nintendo fans. And please don’t post chain comments. If they were true, 3/4 of the people here would be dead already. I myself should be dead… over 30 times by now. Show no hostilities to other commentors… Stop asking me to email the video because I don’t have it on my computer anymore. Sorry, but if you’d asked within 24 hours of me putting the vid up… you’d have had better chances. Don’t verbally abuse me. What have I ever done to you, huh?
