A Recording Engineer's Guide to the Secrets of iTunes and the iPod

Every once in a while, this blog is worth the price of admission. That admission being zero dollars, you'd think it would happen more often.

Anywho, this article on iTunes and the iPod from an engineer's perspective is really great, and I think may prove useful for several of you.


  • A good read, recomended.

  • Definitely a great read and he brings up some great points. One small issue is when he talks about the error correction not taking anymore time with the possible exception of having to write a little bit more information to replace the absence of it during the importing process, but it is inevitable that the process of actually checking for errors will indeed require more CPU usage. This might not make the process of importing the songs slower if you have ample computing power left over (as he would with a quad 2.5 G5) but someone with a lesser computer could notice a time difference. In a way I guess all of that is a moot point since I feel the error checking needs to be done either way.

    I really liked his description of an audiophile though….so very true in many cases.
