Digital Audio Explained

04-03-2013


We see a lot of confusion on our forums and in the social media about digital audio, particularly the artifacts created during Analog to Digital (recording) and Digital to Analog (playback) conversion. So it is with some excitement we re-upload the 'Digital Show & Tell' video by Monty of Xiph.org, the developers of the open-source Ogg Vorbis codec supported by FL Studio. 

 

 Watch to learn more about A/D, D/A, sample-rates, bit-depth, dither & more 

 

Monty presents a series of well thought out, real-rime, demonstrations of sampling and sample payback including the effects of - sample-rate, bit-depth and dither. Monty uses both digital analysis tools and vintage analog bench equipment to walk us through the principles of Digital to Analog and Analog to Digital conversion. 

More videos: You can see more videos in this series at Xiph.org/video and download any of the software used in the demonstrations at Digital Show & Tell.

Enjoy!

22-02-2013


We are happy to announce that the FL Studio 64 Bit beta is now available from Looptalk for testing. While FL Studio can already host 64 Bit plugins, this beta moves the core FL Studio application and associated components to native 64 Bit operation.

The beta includes 64 Bit releases of most FL Studio 'native format' plugins & components such as Edison, Newtone, Sytrus, Slicex, Harmor, Gross Beat, Vocodex etc. Click on the image above to read up on the full details of the 64 Bit beta release and start testing.

 

We also have 64 Bit VST versions of most plugins available for testing here and here.
