Analog-to-digital conversion is a critical operation in the digital recording of audio. Whether the task at hand is the preservation of historical analog materials or the recording of new digitally-born material, the accuracy and transparency of the A/D converter should be of utmost concern to the audio engineer. This workshop features a panel of experts in the design of digital audio converters. Topics to be covered include sampling and filtering methodologies, sample clock issues, and the performance compromises that must be considered in the design of digital audio converters.
