While several major Indian pharmaceutical manufacturers have been cited by the FDA this year, Cipla appears to be the latest to receive a Form 483 following an inspection by the US regulator.

According to the FDA, which inspected the manufacturing site outside the city of Indore, India, between June 27 and July 7 this year, the facility was not cleaned and maintained to correct intervals to avoid contamination that could affect the safety of pharmaceutical products. .

The FDA Form 483 also notes that the site’s quality assurance manager stated that there was no raw data available for calculating the area of ​​the site’s manufacturing equipment. With no raw data available, there was no evidence that swab samples were examined.

The document also notes that the samples of the pharmaceuticals taken to ensure quality were not correctly identified and were placed in incorrect test chambers.

This isn’t the first time the site has been on the FDA’s radar. During an inspection in April 2018, the site had several observations, including inadequate testing programs, inadequate written procedures, and a lack of scientifically sound laboratory controls.

Terminal news inquired with Cipla about the inspection and what is being done to remedy the situation, but did not receive a response by press time. In total, Cipla’s manufacturing sites have accumulated seven Form 483s since 2016.

Meanwhile, other Indian pharmaceutical companies like Sun Pharma, Aurobindo and Cadila have also received Form 483s so far this year.

IRCAMRenault’s sounds were, indeed, surprisingly gentle, though perhaps less like birdsong than a washing machine set to the delicate cycle. The Paris soundscape will surely benefit. But would anyone hear these elegant French alerts to New York, especially about the hustle and bustle of all the gas-powered vehicles on its congested streets?

An automobile powered by internal combustion makes noise. The induction of air, its compression inside the piston liners, the explosion of vaporized gasoline and the expulsion of CO2 the exhaust (“suck, squeeze, thump, and puff,” in car parlance) produce loud, low-frequency gears, rumbles, and vibrations.

At General Motors, engineers from the Noise and Vibration Center are responsible for fine-tuning this din. Douglas Moore, GM’s senior exterior noise expert, started working for the company in 1984 while still a student at Michigan State. He spent nearly eight years of his career at GM, where his job, and that of his noise and vibration colleagues, was to silence, attenuate and modulate the sounds emitted by internal combustion, according to the brand. Traditionally, when tuning a Cadillac, Moore and his colleagues tried to make the engine as quiet as possible, because quietness equates to luxury for the classic Cadillac buyer. In tuning a Corvette, Chevrolet’s “muscle car,” engineers want some of the bang-bang-bang of internal combustion to pass through, as this transmits power to the driver.

Engine sound isn’t the only thing the engineers are working on. The first experience of many potential buyers of a car or truck is the CLICK on ker-CHUNK what the driver’s side door does when you close it, followed by a slight harmonic shudder emitted by the metallic skin of the vehicle. The door’s weight, latches, and seals are carefully calibrated to create a psychoacoustic experience that conveys comfort, security, and craftsmanship.

When designing electric versions of popular brands, US automakers must decide whether to make electric vehicles mimic their gas-powered counterparts or, like Renault, to stray from the familiar sound. The Passenger Safety Enhancement Act guidelines allow automakers to create their own brand alerts, as long as they meet certain specifications.

Moore’s first EV project was the 2012 Chevy Volt, which issued a pedestrian alert years before the law mandated one – a vacuum-like hum that increased in frequency as the car was accelerating. “I have new colors to paint with,” Moore said. “Instead of a palette of internal combustion sounds, I have a palette of AVA sounds. But it’s the same approach. Now, instead of generating them with the physical components of the car, which has its pros and cons, we generate them electronically.

Moore is also the longtime chair of a group within the Society of Automotive Engineers called the Light Vehicle Exterior Sound Level Standards Committee, which helps develop tests that regulators use to measure safety on the road. in the USA. His group led the investigation into the development of minimum noise standards for electric and hybrid vehicles, and the establishment of parameters to govern the decibel level, pitch and morphology of warning signals. Moore once came to NFB headquarters and tried to navigate traffic while blindfolded. His ONF instructor was impressed that the engineer could identify a 2005 Chevrolet Camaro and a 2009 Cadillac Escalade by their distinctive engine sounds.

Moore explained the SAE’s relationship with federal traffic safety regulators, saying, “We figure out how to measure things. NHTSA says how much. I asked Moore why regulations didn’t require electric vehicles to sound more like ICE vehicles, since, as John Paré of the NFB had pointed out to me, we’re already used to those noises. Moore replied, “The purpose of that sound is to provide information about what the vehicle is doing. And there’s more than one way to deliver that. He stopped himself. “Yes, we learned internal combustion sounds in a hundred years,” he continued. “But before the carriages were there, we knew the clip-clop of the horses meant the carriage was coming. So there’s nothing inherent in those engine sounds.

“But I’m one of the coolest!”

Cartoon by Suerynn Lee

A well-designed alert reaches the people who need to hear it, without annoying those who don’t. To thread this sonic needle, engineers can vary the decibel level of a particular sound, which indicates the amount of air pressure the sound waves are moving, and they can also adjust the pitch or frequency of the sound. The decibel level and pitch determine how intrusive that sound is. The danger is that you create a sound that sort of cries wolf: it works at first, but after a while people turn off, so you have to turn up the volume.

Although humans are able to hear frequencies between twenty and twenty thousand hertz, we hear in “octave bands”, in which the highest frequency is twice the lowest. (In a musical octave in C, high C is twice the frequency of low C.) The rules state that AVA the sounds must span four distinct, non-adjacent octave bands. A so-called broadband sound of this type, such as the static screech that Amazon delivery vans have recently begun to emit when backing up, is less shrill, more robust, and easier for the listener to localize directionally. than an alert that occupies a narrow frequency range, like the backup beeps on Con Ed trucks. Not coincidentally, the non-adjacent octave band rule prevents using a musical phrase as an alert – the height would sound horribly – as well as any voice, human or animal alert. How would blind people tell the street from the sidewalk if electric cars were talking or barking?

By giving automakers latitude to mark their alerts, NHTSA rules created a new form of design: acoustic automotive styling. Pedestrians and cyclists will not only hear the vehicle coming; they will know what type of car it is. For acoustic designers, electric vehicle pedestrian alerts and their rich in-cab sound information menus represent the dawn of a new era. “I feel lucky to be able to work on features that will influence how the world will sound,” General Motors creative sound director Jigar Kapadia told me.

Kapadia, who studied electronics and telecommunications engineering at the University of Mumbai and has a master’s degree in music technology from NYU, collaborates with Moore and others at GM’s sound lab in Milford, Michigan. . For each sound, the team comes up with around two hundred variations and then tests them on their colleagues in the jury room, until they’ve come up with a few finalists they can test on vehicles.

Kapadia compares the sound of an alert system to a scent. “Just like a perfume, it unfolds,” he told me. “The alert has a base note, a middle note, and a top note.” He added, “These layers are fused together to bring out a cohesive organic sound, or a futuristic sound, based on the type of branding we’re focusing on.” He noted that the pedestrian alert on the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, the first electric version of GM’s longtime luxury car, was made with a didgeridoo, an ancient Australian wind instrument based on the known musical interval. as the perfect fifth. However, for GM’s nine-thousand-pound electric Hummer, which recently went on sale, Kapadia said, “we wanted a more distorted sound.” He paused, then added, “Bold Hummer sound.” The Hummer’s forward motion alert made me think of church, when the organist launches into the next hymn. The backup sound resembles its dystopian twin.

At Ford Motor Company, to find out what car buyers thought electric vehicles should look like, engineers and consultants held “customer clinics” and launched a Facebook campaign. Judging by the number of responses, Ford fans were keen to make their opinions known. My own investigation, based largely on reading comments under YouTube videos of various branded EV sounds, is that most people think EVs should not look like ICE cars. Higher frequencies are thought to mean clean energy and software-driven intelligence; EVs should whiz and zoom like flying personal vehicles from sci-fi movies like “The Fifth Element,” “Gattaca,” “Blade Runner” and, of course, “Star Wars.” In many cases, in fact, Foley artists created the sound effects of these futuristic vehicles from recorded ICE noise. In Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner 2049,” the twist is that Ryan Gosling’s flying vehicle looks like a broken down ICE clunker.

Re-Tales #23: Urgent Matter https://dssoundlabs.com/re-tales-23-urgent-matter/ Thu, 28 Jul 2022 16:56:22 +0000 https://dssoundlabs.com/re-tales-23-urgent-matter/ Like many fans of vinyl music, I’ve gotten used to waiting for pre-order records.

Like many fans of vinyl music, I’ve gotten used to waiting for pre-order records. For several years now, record pressing factories have been oversubscribed; there simply aren’t enough presses to keep up with demand. When vinyl declined in the 1980s – replaced first by cassettes and then CDs – the old presses were abandoned, rusting and in disrepair before the vinyl revival, leaving the industry with limited capacity . Then a fire in February 2020 destroyed the Apollo/Transco factory, one of the two main suppliers of the lacquers used to make most new records. The impact of lacquer shortages may have been overstated, but it was another factor that record manufacturing companies had to deal with (footnote 1).

The long wait for vinyl pressing capability appears to be over. In response to huge demand, new vinyl presses are coming online in the United States as new businesses are formed and established factories expand.

Tennessee is becoming a center for vinyl pressing in the United States. Memphis Record Pressing was founded in 2014; last year the company pressed over 7 million LPs. Since June 2016, MRP has had a strategic partnership with GZ Media in the Czech Republic, which is said to be the largest record press operation in the world. This arrangement gave MRP access to vinyl pads, “as well as technical and engineering supplies to include new vinyl pressing equipment,” wrote MRP CEO/co-founder Brandon Seavers. , in an email response to questions.

MRP invests $30 million in its pressing plant and packaging operations. The expansion includes the construction of a 33,000ft2 building adjacent to its current facility, which will house 36 new presses. MRP plans to double its workforce and run its presses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with a capacity of approximately 125,000 discs per day. MRP expects the facility to be operational by the end of September, about a month after this magazine appeared. The company’s packaging operations will also expand, moving into a refurbished 100,000-foot building2 warehouse.

MRP isn’t Tennessee’s only new record-breaking action. GZ Media recently opened a US headquarters in Music City for its subsidiary, Nashville Record Pressing. NRP did not respond to questions, but reports indicate that their LP pressing and packaging operations are expected to start as I write this in early June.

Also in Nashville, United Record Pressing (formerly Southern Plastics), another major supplier, would add an additional 48 presses, although stereophilic was unable to confirm this.

Finally, Nashville is home to a boutique pressing facility, VinyLab. VinyLab, which manages small vinyl runs starting at 250 copies, is preparing to open B-sides at VinyLab, a bar/restaurant/concert venue adjacent to the factory, with views of the skyline and record presses in action – a trend also seen at Jack White’s Third Man Records in Detroit.

In Denver, Colorado, Vinyl Me Please is taking a similar on-sight approach to their upcoming 14,000ft show.2 record pressing facility, called Vinyl Media Pressing – another VMP. The new factory is under construction and is expected to open in January. (So ​​far, GZ Media has pressed most of VMP’s releases; a smaller number have been pressed at RTI.) VMP, which primarily focuses on audiophile-grade recordings, has hired Gary Salstrom as general manager; Salstrom previously worked at Quality Record Pressings’ highly regarded factory, Analogue Productions in Salina, Kansas. Like Analogue Productions, the new VMP “seeks higher quality, lower volume pressing,” Salstrom told me over the phone. “We’re reaching out to a smaller group of people so we can guarantee turnaround times.”

The building that will house VMP’s pressing plant was a winery in the 1920s. Soon it will house not only the pressing plant, but also a listening room with a wall of records and several turntable stations where visitors will be able to listen to music. Across the street, a retail space will sell records, drinks and snacks. Another room will house a high-end system for critical listening. “We want to make it very visitor friendly,” Salstrom said. Views of the pressing and plating areas are part of the plan.

VMP will mostly press from hairsprays, but Salstrom can make DMM a snap. “Back when I was at Wakefield Manufacturing in Phoenix, I was one of the first people in the United States trained in DMM plating,” he said. “Since most audiophiles don’t like the sound produced by DMM slicing, we probably won’t see many projects on DMM.”

Meanwhile, the new VMP facility might itself be doing something to address the hairspray shortage. “We’ll start with plating and pressing and plan to master lacquers and eventually print labels and the like on the road,” he said. “One bite at a time.”

In Minneapolis, Minnesota, optical media maker ADS Group (using its “CopyCats Media Division” name) is building a new “modern” pressing plant with five presses to start; a 65,000 feet2 space leaves room for expansion.

Another newcomer: Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MoFi) – or rather Jim Davis, its owner. In response to a question from stereophilic, MoFi Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Jonathan Derda, issued a statement via email: “Jim Davis, owner of Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MoFi) and Music Direct, will open a new pressing plant of discs which should start operating next year.” Details to come.

There’s a risk that all that capacity will flood the market, which could make drives cheaper, but could also lead to lower costs and, therefore, lower quality in an industry that currently perhaps offers its best quality. For the moment, however, everyone is happy, excited about the future. “There is such a shortage of pressing plants that there is enough business for everyone,” Michael Fremer said in an interview, echoing a widespread sentiment. “The pressure was just crazy to get things done. Everyone is happy, everyone is sharing information. I didn’t expect this to happen. It’s amazing.”


Footnote 1: Wondering why so many recent records seem to be “Direct Metal Mastered”? The DMM process was once fairly rare, and many audiophiles once dismissed DMM recordings, finding them edgy and harsh despite their apparent technical superiority. Yet today there seem to be more DMM records. Why? Because the DMM process does not use lacquers, which are lacquered aluminum discs. Instead, it uses copper plates. Most of the DMM records we see are cut by GZ Media in the Czech Republic, although Germany’s Optimal and Record Industry in the Netherlands has also cut DMM. “Hairspray supply continues to be a concern for the industry,” MRP’s Seavers told Stereophile.

Italy’s record industry has won an interim injunction against internet services company Cloudflare ordering it to block users from accessing three copyright-infringing BitTorrent sites through its DNS resolver.

Although Cloudflare is a completely legitimate company, it has been regularly criticized by the music industry for facilitating piracy operations. This generally relates to Cloudflare providing services to individuals or companies accused of widespread copyright infringement, including services that allow infringers to hide their location or identity.

For its part, Cloudflare has always resisted calls to more proactively identify and block copyright infringers among its customer base, generally arguing that – while it is happy to comply with court orders – it cannot not just cut customers based on copyright complaints. owners.

In Italy, the dispute with Cloudflare was slightly different. The company also offers Internet users a so-called DNS resolver. Most people don’t even realize they’re using a DNS resolver when accessing the web because it’s a process handled by their ISP. However, you can choose another DNS resolver if you wish.

There are various reasons for doing so. But one of the reasons is that – if your ISP has blocked you from accessing a website due to hacking, probably due to a music industries secure web blocking injunction or cinema – switching to an alternative DNS resolver often allows you to circumvent the blockade.

With web blocking now a favorite anti-piracy tactic of the music and film industries in every country where web blocking court orders are available, the underhanded tactics people employ to get around the blocks are a source of concern for music and film companies.

The question is which internet companies beyond conventional ISPs should be obligated to help ensure that web blocks are as effective as possible. For example, what about alternative DNS resolver providers?

In Germany, Sony Music sought to force a non-profit DNS resolver called Quad9 to launch some of its own web blocks, an obligation Quad9 tried to fight.

Meanwhile, in Italy, the majors – coordinated by national and global trade groups FIMI and IFPI – have sought to force DNS resolver Cloudflare to block access to three hacking sites that are already subject to web blocks in the country.

The first blocking orders concerning these three sites were launched by the Italian regulator AGCOM. But do these commands also apply to Cloudflare? Well, yes, because the court in Milan has now issued an interim injunction to that effect. And the Internet company has 30 days to comply with this order, otherwise it will face daily fines.

Welcoming the move, IFPI boss Frances Moore said, “Cloudflare’s services allowed users to access copyright-infringing websites that had been ordered blocked by the regulator. Italian AGCOM. These sites divert revenue from licensed music services and ultimately those who invest in and create music.”

“By ordering CloudFlare to cease providing access to these sites,” she continues, “the Milan court has issued an important decision which we believe sends a clear message to other online intermediaries that they too can be prosecuted if their services are used for music piracy”.

Meanwhile, Enzo Mazza, CEO of FIMI, adds: “We welcome the court’s decision which will further strengthen the ongoing infringing site blocking program executed by AGCOM in Italy, while increasing the effectiveness of rights holders to protect their content online”.

Julian Arky ’25 has a passion for music. He started piano lessons at age 7 and guitar lessons at age 9. Towards the end of high school, he began writing his own songs in earnest, and for his senior project, he recorded and produced his first EP. But as he enters his second year at Hamilton, he has no plans to turn that passion into a college degree. Instead, he pursues music in other ways, such as his current internship at Kingsize Soundlabs, a small recording studio in Los Angeles.

“I wanted to get some experience and see if that’s the kind of path I want to go down,” Arky said. “I feel like I would develop the skills better by having experience on the ground rather than through academics.”

Arky learns how studio recording works and the different equipment and processes involved. Some days he even helps set up recording and music equipment for clients. This work puts him at the heart of the action: surrounded by talented musicians and with a unique opportunity to listen to them play. As he works, he sees how small changes in mic placement alter the sound or how a certain effect can alter the way sound travels through the console. It’s a creative process, he says, and it influences how he views his own music.

“I’m exposed to a lot of new stuff – music that I wouldn’t listen to on my own and a lot of gear that I didn’t even know about,” he said. “I think it definitely impacts how I want to write and the creative building process in general.”

When he’s not learning through his job, Arky learns from the people around him, all of whom are as interested in music as he is. One of his favorite parts was seeing the different paths taken by his colleagues. Many didn’t go to school for the music, and others didn’t realize until later in life that they wanted to be involved in the industry.

Major: Undecided
Hometown: Los Angeles, California.
High School: Waverly High School

“It’s crazy to find people who are so knowledgeable and I can learn so much from,” Arky said. “And a lot of those people just started working in a studio and got better and better. I think that’s probably the most inspiring thing.

Arky looks forward to continuing to spend his summer immersed in the music and all the processes involved in its production.
