LESSON 3: Fundamentals II: Analog vs Digital

In this lesson, we move forward on our journey through sound, examining the underlying principles of audio and signal flow in the electrical realm (analog) as well as inside the computer (digital). In today’s age, new tools and ideologies to music making are introduced every five minutes. Understanding the manipulation of audio as the tools evolve over time is a trait shared by the most successful in this industry. With theses guiding principles in mind, paired with the unique insight your mentor has to offer, you’ll be prepared to walk into any recording session, having greater command over the technology, thus more headroom for creativity.
