In the early days of audio
when the audio technology was being invented
the fundamental techniques of working with audio
were critical in producing the best possible results with the available technology.
Has this changed since technology has now become so powerful?
We started working in an ACOUSTIC world
MECHANICAL technology was used to make sounds.
We could then convert it and bring it into the ELECTRICAL realm.
We are now in the data age in the realm of DIGITAL!
Each of these realms has its own set of laws determined by science, physics and math.
Each time the signal passes from one realm to another it is effected in different ways in each different realm.
We think we are working with sound but in fact we are working with acoustics, electricity and data.
By understanding these realms a little better we can make better choices with the technology we choice to work with.
