  • digital vs. analog    
  • sample rates vs. bit rate    
  • human frequency domain (20hz-20Khz)
  • nyquist-shannon theorem
  • compression: lossy vs. lossless
  • conversion do’s & dont’s

  • DJ & live performance: learning how to use these tools to make or alter music in a live setting.
  • Frameworks to organize production workflow. Ex: Max/MSP, PureData, Bidule
  • Working with film/video/new media. This will allow you to combine your well-made audio tracks with other types of media to create a final product.
