When you visit myNoise, one of the first things that you see is this message: “The site you are about to enter is not just another of those soundscape websites but a serious tool oriented toward the needs of hearing professionals, sound therapists, and people interested in noise machines in general”.

Born in Brussels and with a degree in Electrical Engineering, Dr. Ir. Stéphane Pigeon is the man behind myNoise and other incredible audio-related websites such as Audio Check, Wavtones and My Hearing Test.

I finally had the opportunity to contact him via email and then have the following interview.

Vintage audio rules
Nostalgia for holding an audio casette in your hands once again? A company in Missouri never quit building those lovely analog tapes, living an incredible success in the digital music era. -

#analog   #casette   #music   #vintage  

When audio manufacturers in the 1990’s chose to follow society’s fashionable trends and adhere to the rules of modern corporate capitalism, due to the music distribution market shifting towards the production of the CD and the popularity of the digital format (Mp3) in the 2000s, one company from Springfield, Missouri, chose to stick to its roots and produce the same analog magnetic cassette tapes that they have been making since day one.

The National Audio Company (NAC)‘s president and owner Steve Stepp said it best when he justified their persistence and dedication in manufacturing audio cassettes: “I think you can characterize our operating model as stubbornness and stupidity. We were too stubborn to quit. Now we’re making more audio cassettes then we’ve ever made and that’s something to say in 2015″.

Stepp explains that the NAC strictly began as a medium-sized blank medium supplier in 1969 but it wasn’t until the late 1990s and early 2000s, when many of their large competitors decided to move into CD replication as it became the most common and successful household format for music distribution. At that point NAC saw this as a huge opportunity for the audio cassette, as their sole purpose wasn’t intended towards the music market when the music distribution industry naturally took a dramatic shift towards the disc and digital format. This gave NCA a competitive edge over their rivals, as their loyal spoken word and blank tape customers were still keeping their business alive, giving them the power to buy out their competitors, collecting all their equipment, restoring it into new condition and preparing the company to pick up the music market when it came back.
