Digital
DelayAn outboard unit used to create time dependent effects where a source signal is sampled/recorded and replayed later by a adjustable amount, either singly or in multiples. The amount of delay results in a range of effects from chorus and slap back to rhythmic echo. Also used for time correction in large PA systems.

pedals tend to give the user much more control and stability than their solid state analogue cousins. However, their sound can differ greatly - analogue

CapacitorAn electrical component that stores charge, also known as a condenser. A capacitor/condenser microphone uses two conducting plates, one fixed and one in the form of a moving diaphragm. When a polarising voltage is applied the electrical signal produced by the vibrating diaphragm (in response to sound) is very faithful to its movement, resulting in accurate reproduction.

Commonly found in hard drives and also in relation to soundcard drivers and the speed of audio data through a system.

KeyAn additional input on a dynamics processor such as a compressor or noise gate, enabling the dynamics of one signal to control the level of another. This can be used for many functions, including ducking (compressing a music signal when a DJ or announcer speaks), synchronised gating, and (in conjunction with an equaliser) de-essing.

Sample1) In digital audio, a sample is numerical representation of amplitude at a single point in time. Thousands of samples are taken every second, corresponding to the sample rate, and stored as binary numbers. The analogue waveform is recreated by passing the samples back through a digital-to-analogue (D/A) converter. 2) A digital recording of an instrument sound, percussive hit, loop or sound effect, used in music production.
