You have probably seen the term Digital Signal Processing before, but you may not know what it is. To add to the confusion, it is an often misused term, but Digital Grabber will set you straight on this process of making analog sound better on digital setups.
"It happens that many people have no idea what Digital Signal Processing means, although they
hear more and more often these words, today. Considering the name, Digital Signal Processing,
people are lead towards thinking that this procedure deals with digital signals. No; Digital
Signal Processing is a method of improving the quality of the analog signals, only. Indeed, the
naming used is rather improper, because it relates to all types of digital processing, only that
the methods, and the techniques used in DSP deal only with signals that are analog in nature. In
the digital signals case, we can only compress, encrypt, and translate them to other digital
formats; these (different) procedures do not require any DSP techniques. Using the DSP name when
referring to digital signals causes confusion."
