Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Audio Electronics (But Were Afraid to Ask)
Peterson Goodwyn over at diyrecordingequipment is preparing a podcast with seasoned EE Duncan Gray. He writes:
One of the biggest obstacles for entry into the DIY community is that most of us arrive here from a music, not electronics background. We’ve all been there: you’re planning your next DIY project and the documentation casually tells you to “bias the transistor.” In that moment, very few of us want to be the one to ask, “umm…. what’s biasing?”
Well, now is your chance to ask all of those audio electronics questions you never found the right moment to ask! On Saturday, 6/9/2012 I’m recording a podcast with a real live EE who has volunteered to answer your questions. Please post your questions in the comments section by Friday, 6/8 and we’ll try to answer as many of them as we can. No question is too “dumb,” or too complex to ask.
Duncan Gray is an EE with over 30 years experience in the field, including a stint as a Senior Hardware Design Engineer for Digidesign. His areas of expertise include both analog and digital hardware design, audio transformers, power systems, and scientific programming. Many thanks in advance to Duncan for volunteering his time and expertise!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
