Audio Editing?

Posted 20 August 2004 - 02:28 PM

Ok, I know next to nothing about audio files outside of which types and some of the benifits of each. I'm wondering what I need to edit audio files, and also how the file is set up. Is anyone up to answering this?

By setup, I mean how does the computer know what frequencies to play at what times? That might help.

the closest answer i have is that there are decoders that translate the audio file data, then your audio program takes this decoded data and tells your speakers what to do.

You want to know the details about encoding audio data in a digital format and then storing it in a file. Here's a starting point on MPEG:
