Some useful perspective on the digital vs analog divide

There is, of course, Robert Moog saying in an interview that due to sampling rates you get digital aliasing, which you can hear. The thought goes like this: sound is a gradual change of an amplitude over time. In analog circuits this continuous change is preserved and this retains the natural sound, as opposed to a stepped digital curve. However, here is some useful perspective:


What you see in the digital domain as a stepped curve is not what you actually hear.

If you're curious how a DAC works, this is helpful:


Just like your instrument for how it sounds, not how it generates it (GUI/knobs aside).

Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.
