The bluffers guide is aimed at anyone who would like to better understand sound and audio. It will demystify the myths and jargon by explaining the fundamentals in a simple and pragmatic way. Whether you are a technician or a researcher, a manager or administrator ....within an audio visual archive you will contribute to the processing of audio as we move from legacy to modern digital archive. Make sure you understand the decisions you are making. 

Part 2 of 2 complimentary training workshops. In Part 2, we will demonstrate how we turn analogue sounds into digital signals. We will look at the importance of sampling, quantisation, data rates, and the importance of error management. Finally we will look at choosing a compression algorithm and what happens if we reduce the size of a file.
