Terminology for Dummies

I have the Audacity basics down, but your podcast finally shed some light on terminology I hear sound guys throwing around all the time. I have it queued up for a re-listen tomorrow, and will probably hit it one more time. I look forward to the coming installments.

Thanks

Hey, thanks for this.
Maybe next time I make a podcast I'll take more notice of what you've said here to save everyone the 20Mb download!

If you have any more tips, specifically about using Ardour, then that would be fantastic.

Cheers!
