Welcome to my place!

Audio Resource Jan Didden

It's great to have you here!

This place is where I talk about my personal projects, interests and whatnot. Not necessarily related to audio, although it often is. Under the Musings button you'll find things related to perception and conciousness which of course are very much applicable to audio!

My library lists lots of (historic) audio papers and studies that I personally find important to understand many different issues in audio.

I also have collected the interviews I've done with audio luminaries. Take some time to read and digest them - there are very interesting and worthwhile gems in each of them! My projects however is audio stuff - things I designed, wrote articles about, and my personal system. Comments and remarks are always welcome!

Last but surely not least, let me mention my publication Linear Audio. Published twice per year, over 200 pages of technical audio related articles from international authors. Article abstracts and author bio's can be read at the website, and some articles are available for free online.

So, take a look around, explore the various areas and let me know what you think!

Currently on my table


I have a habit of reading several books in parallel, sort off. The reason is that after reading a section in a book, I often need some time (unconciously, mostly) to digest the material. That takes some time, which I spend reading another book. So I go back and forth between two, three or sometimes more books.

Here I list what's on my table currently, and one by one, when I finish reading them, they will have a review in this section.

Hope you look in once in a while!

Spring 2015 and I'm  again preparing for some trips:...

It's that time of year again: Oct always sees me in the US to meet lost of old friends, authors and make new ones! And it's audio that binds us. First, on 6 October, will be Burning Amp in...
