A wide-ranging discussion of digital audio performance problems and solutions will take place. Topics will include jitter, sample and hold, quantization, and essential differences between analog and digital signal processing. What are the limitations of DSP and what can be done about it? There will be some concentration on semiconductors and the problems associated with mixed signals—digital next to sensitive analog. Focus will also be on digital audio computer interfaces and archiving of digital audio formats. The session will be as interactive as possible with lively Q&A encouraged.
