mp3 argument The Next Revolution in Music Technology Make or Break Throughout life I have encountered several different mediums of music including eight-track recordings vinyl records cassette tapes mini-discs digital audio tapes DAT and compact discs I have always considered the CD to be the greatest technological advancement as a medium of music of my generation because it was the first digital audio format made readily available to the general public Because of the CD people were hearing music like they had never heard it before - exactly as it would sound in the artists recording studio Among other things we have digital audio technology to thank for that But we have recently been presented with something new that some may give thanks for - Moving Picture Experts Group Technology Layer-III better known as MP3 To those outside the complicated world of the Internet and technology MP3 probably will not ring any bells But anyone who has accessed the Internet or skimmed through any popular magazines lately will likely recognize MP3 and the propaganda surrounding it I do not want to bombard you with numerous technological terms but a brief explanation is necessary in order to understand arguments surrounding the issue MP3 is a new way to save copy and play audio files on a computer The audio files are near CD-quality and take up very little space on a computers hard drive Previously high-quality audio files were saved on a computer in WAV format which takes up much more hard drive space than MP3 For example a three-minute WAV file would use about 30 megabytes of disk space But in MP3 format the same song would use only two megabytes leaving much more hard drive space available on the computer which benefits the computer user Because MP3 files are typically less than five megabytes in size they can be transferred very quickly and easily to and from anyones computer via the Internet
