The NLE AudioPedia series, our video-based audio encyclopedia, is a comprehensive dictionary of audio terminology. It's an invaluable resource for sound engineers, musicians, students, educators and all audio enthusiasts. This first installment is about Sound Waves and Hearing.
AudioPedia - noun | Au·di·o·Pe·di·a | [aw-dee-oh-pee-dee-uh] An animated, short format video informational resource explaining in plain English all aspects of audio: acoustics, mixing, mastering, recording, digital audio terms, microphones, recording, and more.
Created by our audio expert Joe Albano, AudioPedia is the ultimate audio reference tool. Here are the topics covered and defined in the first installment of this authoritative series:
The perfect topic to begin the "AudioPedia". Connecting hearing with basic audio concepts (frequency = pitch for example) helps ground their meanings in experience. Also showing the relationships between the different sound level measuring systems was very interesting. Whatever your role, if you work with sound, this video provides an excellent foundation of basic concepts.

Joe is great! I watched his course on SoundToys plug-ins and I felt like I got so much useful insight, in addition to how to use the plug-ins, that I made a mental note, and am now going through all of his tutorials that apply to me and my work.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experiences with us Joe! You're the best at these tutorials that I've found :)

Great course for understanding sound and how it relates. Joe Albano has a great way of explaining complex subjects in a clear, understandable fashion that makes these courses enjoyable.

I watched a couple of the videos and there is good info there but it's all pretty much covered in detail in Joe Albano's Audio Concepts series. Since I already have downloaded that one, I'll pass on this other than to check out individual videos if I'm looking for info on a particular subject. Otherwise, it's well done as Joe's tutorials usually are.
