In considering the development of the personal computer as a musical tool, attention has so far focused primarily on applications that make relatively modest demands on the underlying technology, for example the development of software for editing and regulating control data within the MIDI environment. Tasks such as audio synthesis and signal processing were to prove a far more challenging prospect, in many instances requiring the services of additional hardware. The evolution of audio processing systems based on the personal computer is discussed, taking into account some interesting institutional research programs dating from the pre-MIDI era that directly influenced these developments.

Keywords:   personal computer, signal processing, control data, MIDI, audio processing
