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!

On SPICE simulation

For many yeares I have been ussing a paid-for circuit simulator, part of the Proteus package from Labcenter in the UK. In 2017 I decided to give the free LTspice from (then still) Linear Technology a run, liked it and switched over.

Fast-forward to mid-2019: Spectrum Software's MicroCap (uC) simulator is now distributed free of charge! Accordoing to online sources this would be the best circuit- simulator ever, so I will give that a try soon. I do see a potential disavantage to free software, that it will no longer be kept up-to-date. But we'll see.

Anyway, here is the first resource for uC, courtesy Edmond Verrijn-Stuart: http://www.spectrum-soft.com/usernotes.shtm
