Dolby creates app for recording studio-quality audio on your phoneDolby 234

Dolby recently released a secret app with the purpose of recording studio-quality audio from cell phones. The app was called 234 and cleaned up audio from voice notes by cancelling background noise and optional presets like “Amped,” “Thump,” and “Bright,” to create a more professional-sounding recording. Through a sign-up site, which is now deactivated, users were able to download the app. It was advertised as “having your own producer in your phone,” according to producer Dani Deahl from The Verge, who downloaded the system.

234 was reportedly easy to use. The user would tap the record button, and the recording software measured the room noise before starting to record. A basic preset was offered with an upgrade option to unlock six more presets, but users were only able to adjust intensity and no other parameters. The one-button solution for fixing audio still had its kinks, and Deahl ntoed that the advertising was strong for the final outcome. The beta project proved to be a test for the high-end audio quality company, striving for a perfect audio-recording software that can easily be accessible to consumers.

Recording studio-quality audio from a phone is a luxury and desired standard by audio recording companies, and Dolby’s leading the charge. Iterations and improvements from the beta are expected, and if created to a point where audio engineers are impressed, this will be a game changer for productivity.

It’s Adam Wiles to you: Calvin Harris says he hates being called by his stage name

It’s Adam Wiles to you: Calvin Harris says he hates being called by his stage nameCalvinharris Hero

When he’s behind the decks, call him by his stage name, but at all other times, Calvin Harris, born Adam Wiles, wants you to use his biological name.

Call it a paradox—just don’t call Calvin Harris by his stage name when he isn’t performing, for the “Giant” producer doesn’t take kindly to being addressed as such. “No one calls me Calvin. It’s horrible and it’s not my name,” the producer expressed in a recent interview with radio hosts Boogie and Arlene, of Boogie & Arlene’s Show. “At the start of my career [when] people were meeting me for the first time, I let it slide. It was sort of a nickname,” Wiles added.

But as Wiles was to learn, what one allows is what will continue. Although Wiles initially shrugged off individuals’ use of his stage name during their off-stage encounters with the producer, Wiles eventually put his foot down when a girlfriend began to call him by his DJ moniker. “I was like, ‘I’m sorry this is ridiculous. You’re speaking to my alter ego,’” he said. “Since that day I’ve been like, ‘I don’t care if you think it’s a nickname or anything, it’s not my name.’”
