What is a signal?
They orginally are changes in air pressure that then become equivilant changes in voltage.
What happens when we choose to store our signal with an analog recording system?
A series of magentic patterns are stored on the tape that directly correspond to the audio signal.
How are our positive and negative voltages that represent compression and rarefraction stored?
Postive and Negative magnetic charges.
What is analog recording?
The tape is analogous to the compression and rarefraction in the atmosphere and the positive and negative voltages in our signal.
What does digital recording take a step further?
They convert the signals into a series of binary numbers.
How does the digital recording convert signals into a series of binary numbers?
Through analog to digital conversion.
After the A to D converter translate our fluctuating signal and assigns them numeric values, where are the numeric values then stored?
They are stored on the media.
