CHAPTER 15
Audio Electronics
Audio electronics, in part, deals with converting sound signals into electrical signals. This conversion process typically is accomplished by means of a microphone. Once the sound is converted, what is done with the corresponding electrical signal is up to you. For example, you can amplify the signal, filter out certain frequencies from the signal, combine (mix) the signal with other signals, transform the signal into a digitally encoded signal that can be stored in memory, modulate the signal for the purpose of radiowave transmission, use the signal to trigger a switch (e.g., transistor or relay), etc.
Another aspect of audio electronics deals with generating sound signals from electrical signals. To convert electrical ...
