#great and quick | #explained very well | #well constructed
Great, quick course! Taught me what I need to know. I decided to take it not too long after starting another Max's course, and I definitely feel like I now know the basic physics behind sound, acoustic, analog, and digital, and am prepared to continue on in my pursuit of learning to DJ. Thank you for this quick and comprehensive course!

Complete Course Description

Hello, and Welcome to Acoustic, Analog, and Digital Signals Explained.
What is an analog signal? 
How does the analog-to-digital conversion process work? 
What about digital fundamentals? 
And what is the digital-to-analog audio converter?  
And the quantization? 
With this course, you can answer all these questions and more! 

At the end of this course, you will be able to understand the following:  
  • the differences between acoustic, analog, and digital signals;
  • what is an analog signal;
  • the sampling process;
  • the quantization process;
  • bit depth and dithering;
  • the quantization noise;
  • the analog to digital conversion;
  • the digital-to-analog converter;
  • driver and buffer setup.

To achieve this goal, the course will start from the beginning: we will talk about what an acoustic signal is and how it can be appropriately transformed, recorded, and played back in a digital system through the analog-to-digital audio converter.

You will also be asked to do some quizzes to confirm what you have learned during the various sections of the course. And, if you want to go into more depth on some particular topics, a couple of external resources are also included in the course lectures.   
Starting as it does from scratch, this course is intended for everybody. No requirements are needed except your musical passion and curiosity. It aims to introduce all the fundamental theories to understand the sampling process, the playback or mixdown of digital audio material through your digital audio card.  

Whos' this course for?
If you are a Producer, a DJ, or a Musician, or if you use a so-called DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) like Cubase, Logic, Pro Tools, Fruity Loops, or DJ software like Traktor, Serato, or Virtual DJ, this course will explain how and why some setting could or should be applied to your audio card or software configuration. However, if you are already an advanced producer or already an audio engineer, this course is not for you.  
This course starts from the beginning, and you don't need to know anything about the topic. Basically, it introduces conscious management of audio signals through digital devices regardless of the brand or software used. Even your smartphone is based on the theory explained here. 

Generally speaking, it's good to know how an audio card works if it is used during the management of digital audio content. Whether you are an audio newbie or an enthusiast or want a conscious knowledge of your audio card, this course is for you.  

Also, remember Lifetime Free Access to the course and a full 7-Day Money-Back Guarantee.
