Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
 
Jesus - Matthew V, 9
 
Prohibition will work great injury... for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.
 
Abraham Lincoln - Dec 18, 1840

Audio Workroom

Raw audio files can take up a tremendous amount of disc space. To get around this we try to reduce the space that they occupy by using various 'compression' methods. The aim is to reduce the size of the audio file without affecting the 'quality' of the audio signal on playback.

I look at various methods for compressing audio for archive, through to streaming, for the delivery of audio over an IP network. As part of this process I will also examine the tools used.

Throughout this discussion I will assume you are working with source material that is yours, and wish to either archive that material, or transcribe it for playback on a different medium/device. This different medium/device could be say an Internet stream in one instance, or a portable media player in another.
