Any usability for musicians? (Playstation 2)

By JeffTadashi, 12/06/2012
The Sony Playstation 2 is one of the greatest home game consoles ever made, with over 150 millions units sold. Originally released in March of 2000, they are still used quite heavily today, even with it's successor, the Playstation 3, being available for a few years now. The newer consoles, such as Nintendo Wii, Microsoft's Xbox 360 (With Kinect as well), and the Sony Playstation 3, have evolved into more than just gaming, and you can use them for other purposes, such as for music listening, music production, and much more. But does the older Playstation 2 have any uses beyond gaming? That is what I want to know.

Nowadays, I used my Playstation 2 for one use only: Dance Dance Revolution. Believe it or not, I get inspired by some of the music on the games, and how the interaction between the music and the steps are created. It is interesting to see what elements of the music are translated into dance steps, and what elements are not. It gives me some perspective on what normal people hear in music, and what rhythms and beats they notice, and what details they may not. Of course, this experience is not unique to Playstation 2 in any way, as Dance Dance Revolution games have been released for many consoles, including Xbox, Xbox360, Wii, Gamecube, and more. They are even available on computers, and with the right equipment, you can simply hook up a laptop to your TV, download some Dance Dance Revolution games and songs, and play it the same way.

But overall, there is little in the Playstation 2 beyond it's game roots. It wasn't until the next generation of consoles, did the home game console become a hub for entertainment and media, as opposed to just a box that plays games. The Playstation 2 does have an optional network adapter, but it works mainly with other games. This is unlike the Xbox360 or Playstation 3, which have integrated wifi, and function heavily on internet connectivity. It would be wise to stick with those consoles for your music production and music entertainment purposes.

Perfect for a first time home musician (Sound Forge Audio Studio 10)

By JimboSpins, 26/02/2013
Sony Sound Forge Studio 10 is a program that can handle anything that all of the popular DAW’s can handle. It is actually a lot easier to use than many other DAW programs that are on the market but the only problem is that it is not as in depth as some of them. So Sound Forge Audio Studio 10 could be great for someone who is just starting out recording music from home on their computer. It is very affordable and extremely easy to set up and start using right way.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Using this program is simple but you can make it more complex if you choose by using plug ins from third party software or from your other programs. I would not use it to run too many CPU intensive programs but it was not bad using some effects plug ins like Antares Auto Tune and even some of the Waves plug ins in Sound Forge Studio 10 worked fine. It never froze up or crashed on my Laptop running Windows Vista. This program is exclusively only for PC’s, it will not work on Mac computers and you will need to have at least 512 MB of RAM for it to run properly.

OVERALL OPINION

One of the reasons I say it is for beginners is because Sony has included a “learn” feature in this program that is like tutorials on the go. As you go there will be tutorials that you can learn from right in the program, of course you can turn these off if you don’t want them there.
Recording, mixing, adding effects, it is all easy to do with this program. The only issue with it is that some CPU intense plug ins tend to be more ‘intense’ in here. The same plug ins that ran in Pro Tools using little CPU used about double that in Sound Forge Audio 10. Also, most of the filters and effects that come with it are very basic. If you are a beginner you will love working with this program but I think the average user will eventually out grow it.
