So here we are. What a journey. The plucked string has taken us through physics, electronics, computers, music, digital signal processing, acoustics, biology and psychology!
This is probably why audio is so fascinating: I would never have guessed the richness of the information I would find when I decided to write this book. I tried as hard as possible to give you correct information, or information that I could at least cross-check through a variety of sources. People in forums and even some of the books I have read give incorrect information, not because it is easy, but because it is hard: the underlying science is quite complex and not trivial at all; difficult mathematics get involved quickly so people take shortcuts or hearsay for the truth. This is especially apparent in electronics and acoustics. I do not pretend my book to be the ultimate answer; I did however make a conscious effort to seek out correct information.
I hope you enjoyed the ride as much as I did.
So now that we know all this, let us go make some music, shall we?
