Music Therapy: 28th October 2020

Wednesday, October 28th, 2020

Many of us have seen recently how music can be used as great therapy with many medical conditions.

Through Lockdown we have seen music bring much joy and consolation to people who are living remotely or housebound; indeed it brings joy to all of us and can raise the spirits at any time.

A fine example of this has come into the spotlight this week.

A piece of music composed from just 4  notes by Paul Harvey aged 80 years who is suffering with dementia, has now been recorded by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

And most importantly given him a new lease of life.

Gracenote CD Database & CD Text: August 27th 2020

Thursday, August 27th, 2020

Gracenote CD Database and CD-TEXT

We live in an age where all things exist on the cloud, but this is only partly true for the text information’s we see when playing CD-Audio disc.

There are in fact two ways to add track text info to a disc:

In the beginning, not long after CDs were released in the 80s, an update was made so small amounts of text could be added to a CD. This text lives in sub channels of the disc so it won’t effect playback, but a CD-TEXT enabled player can read and display the information. Nowadays these players are less common, but still used in most car stereos unless you’re driving one of a few higher end vehicles.

A common assumption is that most computers read CD text, however this is not the case; iTunes, Windows Media Player etc. do not use CD-Text at all. They use a more modern system, the GraceNote – Compact Disc Data Base (CDDB). With this system none of the text used is actually stored on the disc, but all saved on the internet.

When you insert a CD and view through iTunes for example, the computer identifies the disc and then looks it up on the web. If it cannot find a match it will not display the text information, or may display a close match (from another artist!). So even if you have a CD which has CD text, but is not registered with the CDDB, its unlikely the text will show up on a computer at all.

We have customers who have experienced this problem and fortunately its very easy to correct.

We recommend using iTunes as it’s one of the easiest ways to upload your CD information.

The below link will show you how to do this in just a few minutes:

Once submitted it can take a couple of days to update but that’s all you need to do.
