Im here to talk about the positive and negative effects technology has had on the modern society of today. I will will first be explaining the the historical background of music technology and how it has accelerated over the years. One of the most earliest recording inventions was made in 1857 and it was invented by Edoured-Leon Scott, it was called the phonautograph. It was the first device that could capture sound waves in the air. Its main use was to be able to be used for visual study and was unable to be played back.
In 1898 the first form of recording had been invented with the use of magnetic recording. This was called the telegraphone invented by a Danish inventor called Valdmar Poulsen. The telegraphone was able to record sound magnetically by using a thin steel wire, made from ordinary steel. The telegraphone was also used as an answer phone and office dictating systems.
Poulsen also invented a machine that was able to record magnetically on steel. The invention was very unsuccessful and was only manufactured by two companies. As people found out that the telegraphone was able to perform other jobs such as office dictation and answering phoenes, a few European companies tried to market the product in the 1920s with enhanced features. These machines were able to pick up weak telephone signals and with amplifiers could reproduce the sound with better volume. Examples of these machines included the taxtaphone and the Dailygraph. In the early 1930s A german electrical manufacturer and his team designed a new kind of tape recorder, but instead of Poulsen’s solid steel band they came up with the idea of using plastic tape coated in iron oxide. This type of recorder was called the Megnetophon, this was considered poorer quality compared to already existing wire recorders but was soon improved and became standard recorders in German radio stations.
The development of wire recorders had continued in the
