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.
