I’ve always believed that theoretical topics have very important practical applications, especially when it comes to recording sound. For many aspiring musicians and producers, having a functional DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) is enough to suffice, but for those who really want to take their recording to the next level, it is necessary to have at least a fundamental understanding of sound theory.
Sound On Sound Magazine offers a solid, in-depth introduction to modern recording in their six part series All About Digital Audio. Prepare to have you head blown and possibly suffer a little brain leakage. However, in the end, battling your way through concepts like sample rate, binary, dither, and interleaving will leave you a much stronger producer than much of your competition.
