analog audio signal that goes anywhere from -3.3V to + 3.3 V. You can also make
this conversion oppositely. To perform these functions, you need DAC’s and
ADC’s. Most of the models of the audio interface include both of these chips. It

speakers and records the audio signals with minimal noise. If the audio interface

out of the studio monitors. Depending on the environment, it bounces back the
walls, floor, ceilings and other objects that get it way. The acoustic foam, bass
trap, and diffusers prevent these sonic reflections to become inaccurate. Just
remember that if you have windows in your room, its best to buy a thick acoustic
theater curtain so that it does not filter any of the sounds.
