(musTh625) Reading Assignment: Sound and Digital Audio

Please read:

How Digital Audio Works, from the Max/MSP Tutorials and Topics manual.

The link is just the sections of the manual that I want you to read. Max/MSP is a graphical programming environment that allows you to create your own interactive MIDI and digital audio processing routines. The program itself is too advanced for this class, but it is something worth knowing about.

Also, search and read some information about the following sound file formats:

  • aiff
  • wav
  • sdII
  • mp3

Hint: all have entries in Wikipedia, but I would like you to find one other source as well. Try a Google search. Also note that some online electronic music stores have technical information as well. Make a note of where you found the information.
