Some very powerful people are either going to approach with questions or to laugh in my face in the coming days. I want to know what this technology
has been proven capable of and some proof that it even exists.
All I did is ask a friend if he had heard of this type of program or interest in this type of technology. He said he would be back in touch tonight.
Then he said, "call me tonight. I mean it, you better call me tonight."
There is a storm starting to brew over this little wager. I would be willing to bet that by Wednesday morning it will be known to a lot of music
industry investors and decision makers. Sony and Universal will definitely be aware by 5pm CDT.
Because of the industry interest, maybe I should dampen
the enthusiasm as to the final results of this experiment!
Please do remember that I THINK that everything will
work out out in terms of a QUALITY mix result....BUT....I cannot
TRULY guarantee an INITIAL HIGH QUALITY result....but to push
a few more industry buttons....that doesn't mean I can't add more
rules of thumb to the logic tree database to eventually
(i.e. within a few months!) to get the system to such a level
that it actually COULD best ANY HUMAN in terms of producing
high quality multimedia content !!!!!!
Please do remember that the logic trees were INITIALLY created
by ME...I can mix music, half-decently but am I an industry
veteran like Bob Ludwig?...NO! So do remember that this test
result is based upon rules of thumb that are created by
someone who has good industry experience but it won't be
perfect....however if I COULD pick the brains of someone
like a Bob Ludwig then we could produce SUPERB quality
content by embedded THEIR experience into my software.
Since mixing and voice reproduction are essentially algorithms
(i.e. humans basically ARE machines - organic ones!) that from
a COMPUTER SCIENCE PERSPECTIVE I CAN and DO quantify
basic rules of thumb for sound mixing and content production
INTO logic trees that can autonomously create multimedia content.
What I do must confess though is that I don't yet KNOW whether
or NOT that content will pass muster with a trained human ear.
I KNOW ABSOLUTELY FOR A FACT that my software CAN produce
multimedia content! What I must highlight though, is that it is
currrently quite unclear until this test is completed, that my
autonomously created content will sound PROFESSIONAL and
SONICALLY pleasing to both professionals and the general
And for those of you who are scared of what might happen
to the industry, it'll just be a another tool in the arsenal.
The basic music duties will be outsourced to machines and
the high quality stuff will be done by real industry pros
(young or old!) who'll use it as just another TOOL to get
THEIR projects done on time and on budget but at a quality
level that puts them head & shoulders above the hacks.
And to counter the "Everything Will Sound The Same" argument,
since software IS RE-PROGRAMMABLE, it can adapt and change
to varied music types and styles...AND...it could even bring back
the dead to LIFE using sonic and video similarity synthesis....for
example Jimmy Morrison's or Elvis's voice could be put to use
singing RAP, SKA, Metal or even OPERA because I'd be able to
duplicate their singing styles and VOICES but then apply them
to OTHER music types and genres in both the audio
and the video realm.
I hereby INVENT TWO NEW WORDS:
"Vusicians" -- Virtual Musicians
"Vactors" --- Virtual Actors
to indicate that multimedia content was produced
by neural-net based computer algorithmic means.
Remember that software is a TOOL --- how you use it IS UP TO YOU!
My software can put you out of business OR it can MAKE YOUR
BUSINESS depending upon what you do with it and depending
upon if you can find NEW WAYS, MEANS, METHODS to create
NEW TYPES of multimedia content that could be charged for
when people finally realize they REALLY WANT IT!!!!!
And that's where MARKETING comes in!!!!!!!! Which means
we STILL NEED A&R, the Sony's, BMG's, Dreamworks and
Lucasfilms of the world to PUSH that newly created multmedia
into the homes and computers of John and Jane Q. Public!
There is MONEY to be made and FINE CRAFTS to be given or sold!
Which side of the fence WILL YOU BE ON ?
The Debbie Depressed or Dave Downer
or will you BE:
the Thundering Stallion Multimedia Opportunist and Guru?
It's YOUR CHOICE!!!!!!
I'm just supplying the tools either way!
U2U me if you want more info.
