From the Blog: Technology, Creativity, and Tone
Optical pickups - why, you ask? Is it technology for the sake of technology? Clearly you could ask that about any advance in the evolution of musical instruments. Technology has been closely linked to creativity since music began. Each step in the evolution of musical instruments has expanded the possibilities for new ideas, new sounds, and new tonal possibilities. Imagine the inspiration felt by the first violinists who played Stradivarius violins! Was that not a technological breakthrough? Or, in a more recent development, who could deny the impact on music that the first FM digital synthesizer, the Yamaha DX7, had when it arrived on the scene in the early 80's?
