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!


Denver for the Rocky Mountain Audio Show

Then 2 weeks later, it's off to Denver for the Rocky Mountain Audio Show. I'll share a table with Bob Cordell in the lobby. This is a great show for me as it combines technical presentations and discussions as well of great equipment auditions in company listening rooms.

131st Convention of the Audio Engineering Society in NY

The 3rd event is the 131st Convention of the Audio Engineering Society in NY. The AES conventions always have a great program of presentations and workshops on anything from perception to audio electronics and recording workshops to speaker design and more. I'll be there with Bob Cordell on the McGrawHill booth. Look us up for a chat!
