Jay summarized the series like this:
- What’s going on inside your head when you hear things
- How psychoacoustic compression algorithms work
- How lossless compression shrinks an audio file without any changes… but only if you’ve got a powerful computer
- A few non-intuitive tricks that can streamline how you and your clients exhange audio over QuickTime.
Note: SoundHack "is a soundfile processing program for the Macintosh. It performs many utility and esoteric sound processing functions available nowhere else. These functions make SoundHack invaluable to computer musicians, sound effects designers, multimedia artists, webmasters and anyone else who enjoys working with sound." At one point, SoundHack was the choice for resampling for many multimedia journeymen and audio geeks, and has branched into plug-ins for Windows and Mac.
