The electron tube in the recording studio
Regardless of whether it is spoken factually, sung enthusiastically or performed in a virtuoso manner on instruments, every reproduction of sound events requires a recording or its preservation beforehand. For a long time, it was considered a dream of mankind to capture acoustic perceptions to be able to play them back at any time and any location. It was not until the late 19th century that the foundations were laid by Thomas Edison's phonograph and Alexander Graham Bell's telephone. The first working magnetic recording device called the "Telegraphone" was introduced by Valdemar Poulsen, a Danish inventor, during the 1900 World's Fair in Paris. As a result of Alexander Graham Bell's long-distance strategy, the tube amplifier was invented in the early 20th century for the rapidly growing telephone industry. Not only telephone technology but also radio ensured constant developments and innovations in the field of electroacoustics. With the components microphone, tape machine, mixer, tube amplifier and loudspeaker, the establishment of the analog recording studio (broadcasting) in Germany in the famous VOX building on Potsdamer Platz in Berlin was born as early as 1923. At the beginning of this era, the transistor had not yet been developed and so numerous electron tubes were used in the electro-acoustic equipment of the recording studio technology of the time.Read More
