Welcome!

HI, MY NAME IS...

Welcome to Kai's new and improved Sound Handbook. I'm Kai, and I wrote most of the dreck on this site. This handbook has been on-line since 1995, and hopefully this improved version will help even more people than the first edition. I'm still finishing some sections (those are the non-links below), but I hope to have those finished relatively soon. Enjoy!

Well, enough niceties; on to business!
