Wiki

As we explore the world of music we run into words and phrases that need explanation. The purpose of this Wiki is to provide such explanations. Examples include:

  • some not so well known musical instruments;
  • esoteric phrases used in music engineering;
  • definitions of digital music formats.

There is no need to define everything, but we hope that this Wiki will grow to include many relevant topics. You can contribute to the Wiki by rating pages and/or providing comments.
