A primer on digital audio from Engadget
Another very quick link-out post I’m afraid ladies and gentleman – all this damn pushing back of the boundaries of science I’ve been doing lately has left me absolutely no time at all, plus have you ever tried pushing back a boundary? It’s bloody exhausting.
Anyway, following on from my recent post about the auditory gorillas experiment, where I talked a little about audio editing, I spotted a fantastic little piece over on Engadget about the basics of digital audio, covering things like sampling rates, bit-rate, file-formats and loads of other useful/mildly-nerdy stuff. In fact their whole ‘primed’ series (where they dissect common bits of computer technology from first principles) is well worth checking out.
Have a good weekend!
