    Glossary Available?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I'd like to see a page that clearly describes the prevailing terms for various pieces of hardware and their functions.

    For example, I know what a soundcard is and does, and I know what a breakout box is and does, and I know what an A/D converter does...but what is the term of art for an integrated device (like, say, a SeaSound) that incorporates these various functions into a rackmount or other outboard unit which in turn connects to the DAW by a PCI interface card?

    Thank you for any help.

    Cool

    I'm afraid I can't help you with the specific word you're looking for.

    However, regarding the glossary, Prism, another member on this BBS has shared an extensive one with us the other day. It's still on his website.

    Other glossaries were also provided by other members:

    Thank you knidly; I'll have a look.

    Funny there isn't a name for those do-it-all units, though...

    Yeah, "that thing with the knobs over there in the rack...no the one above that."

    Doesn't really have that ring of expertise, y'know?

    spinsta1 does not rest upon "it" an essential condition of the subject, a condition that has been detached from the 'they'; "it" is rather an existentiell modification of the 'they', of the 'they' as an essential existentiale.
