Electronics in audio

What’s an electronics page doing in a music website, well very easy answer, without electronics we would not have modern music, so as you will appreciate the two are totally linked together

How do we hear an electric guitar. Normally we patch a phono cable from the guitar to the highz input of an amplifier to hear it?. So what does an amplifier consist of.

The electronics to boost a very tiny signal of Millivolts from the guitar, up to something big enough to drive an amplifier, and finally a loud speaker, which is powered by 240 volts AC, now that really shows you I am Australian. but now you get my drift, just how important Electronics is in music.

I will not go into the subject deeply, as that area alone is massive, but I will talk basic electronics as in cables and plugs at this point, and give you links to a course you can do on basic electronics practical and theory.

Now please understand, I am not saying you need to know the circuitry of an electronic keyboard, that’s likely impossible, but just an understanding of basic electronics, even to know the difference in the plugs, what job are they intended for, as you don’t mix them around.
