Yamaha’s Latest Silent Brass
The DJ, by nature, is supposed to be a versatile individual. They need to understand various types of equipment as well as have a hold on the genres of music that they are going to play to. They also need to have some sort of business ethic as well as a responsibility to themselves and other DJs alike. On a literal level, the DJ can be both loud and soft. They can choose to blast music over a PA system, or they can choose to keep it quiet and confined inside of their headphones. Other musicians do not have the same luxury as the DJ, who can easily switch from analog noise to digital noise if they wish.
Take the drummer or the brass player for example. They will have a pretty tough time practicing in a small house without waking the neighbors. As a young child, I’m sure I annoyed a lot of people with my drum set before they were ever impressed with my skills. Some nifty new devices are now being put out on the market, like a digital mute for a trumpet that doesn’t actually mute the noise. What it does is let the player hear him or herself over the added noise.
