Guide to Digital Audio

When I was researching digital music management software, 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 here you will find the Catapulting into Classical Intro to Digital Audio, specially designed for folks who are not technically oriented.

I’ve tried to make it easy to read, with plenty of stick figure drawings to explain some of the concepts.

I hope you will find it helpful!
