Sounding out analog and digital conversion

Subject: General Tech | November 12, 2007 - 03:59 PM |

Drop by Ars Technica for all the details of getting started with analog to digtal audio conversion. Sure there is a lot that you need to learn to get it just right, but it is better than paying an audio shop to do it for you.  They also include links to previous articles in the AudioFile series to get you well aquainted with all the terms and processes you should get to know.

"Thanks to cheap and powerful computing, opportunities for non-professionals to get involved in digital audio are

widespread. The medium has become democratized, to some extent—what used to require an entire studio can now be done on the

family PC, with a surprising level of quality. Yet, while the technology has become more accessible, the analog-digital

converter remains a beginner's stumbling block, for both financial and intellectual reasons. Sadly, we can't buy you new

recording equipment. But in the next couple of pages, we can help to explain the workings of analog-to-digital (A/D) and

digital-to-analog (D/A) converters, and hopefully cut through some of the confusion."
