Playing music on your PC
Computer as jukebox
The computer has gone from being a work machine to an entertainment device in a matter of years. There are so many entertaining things to do with the computer nowadays that it is silly to talk of limits. In the world of music, the computer has become music’s first point of entry into a house and someone’s life. This series will explore the ways you can use your computer to play music.
Step 1: The hard drive is a big CD
The incredible compression going on in the world of music formats has coincided with the rise in hard drive space (and lowering of cost). The ability to put massive numbers of songs on an ever-growing hard drive has empowered the music lover and casual fan alike.
Step 2: What does this mean for you?
What this means is that the time has come when you can begin putting all those CD jewel cases into the attic, and listen to your music in a more flexible way on your PC.
Step 3: Where will tomorrow’s PCs be?
There is a fundamental shift in how we are using computers, and nowhere is that more prevalent than in music. The PC is coming out of the den and into the living room (or at least the music from the PC is going there).
Step 4: Goodbye CD carousel
Do you remember the 5 disc carousel CD changer? How about today’s 300 disc CD players? They are going to be replaced within 5 years by hard drives (or other storage devices). A 40 gigabyte hard drive can be had for a lot less than a CD jukebox, and with much greater flexibility. Look for the escalated convergence of computer and stereo music.
