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!

A motorized remote vol/bal controller


In the Good Old Days (Feb. 1991!) I wrote an article for Audio Amateur on a remote control volume and balance control I designed. The design was based on a set of potmeters driven by stepper motors. The actual control commands were provided by a standard IR remote control and the receiving circuit commanded the stepper motors to rotate as required, setting each potmeter to a setting for the commanded volume and balance setting. 

I finally got around to scanning the article. Enjoy!
