Catapulting into Classical

New Guide: Intro to Digital Audio

Hello, Catapulting fans!  I haven’t posted much lately because I’ve been working on a special project.

You may recall that I did a post on digital music management software.  In the process of researching the various options, I realized that I wanted to know more about how digital music worked.  And now, I want to share what I have learned with you.

So I’m rolling out the Catapulting into Classical Intro to Digital Audio for folks who might be interested in the subject, but who might not be technically oriented.

I don’t want to bore those of you who might not be interested in tech stuff, so the guide can be found in a tab at the top of the page.  But if you don’t mind dipping a toe in the digital waters, I’ve tried to make it easy to read, with plenty of stick figure drawings to help explain some of the concepts.

Today, I’ve uploaded Part 1, Clash of the Titans: Analog versus Digital.  In the near future, this will be followed by an intro to audio formats, and an entry on giant music libraries at home and online.  I’ll let you know whenever I post new information.

Haiku Wednesday will be back tomorrow, and we’ll resume our weaving way as we wander through the history of classical music.

  1. I don’t know which is better, the stick figure drawings (especially helpful in the guide), or the clarity of your presentation. Very helpful *and* entertaining!
