    Default Your understanding of digital audio is probably wrong

    Just finished watching this video and certainly learned more than a few things. Even when I went to school for audio engineering was taught that a digital signal is represented as a staircase.

    Note: this might be a little more advanced for the average person to understand

    YOUR understanding of apostrophes is wrong.

    But this is a good video.

    Some old digital hardware, like the SID chip, along with simple soft synths will manage to exhibit the stairstepping even on analog... the first synth I ever wrote suffered from this, but it can actually sound pretty cool if you do it on purpose.

    This guy is great at explaining this without excessive jargon. Here is Episode 1 of the video and the original article that inspired the videos. I highly recommend anyone who cares about music (which should be you, if you're reading DJ Tech Tools) to watch/read those.
