The background to a DSP algorithm which will revolutionise digital audio storage and transmission is presented. The algorithm is for the k ring compression codec (k codec) which has been in development for a number of years. This kodec is unique among compression codecs as it performs data absorption into a fixed size digital memory. It works with all types of data including samples, effects algorithms, sequence data as well as digital audio data streams. The algorithm is not lossy and is suitable for compressing a complete sampler memory dump so as to fit on the floppy disk included as standard, and still have space for plenty more audio data. The kodec is not limited to audio storage, and so will find many applications in the multimedia market, video recorders, computers and communications. Further development is underway for distributing the Internet possibly using a piggyback signal on standard atomic clock time signals. Mass storage media connected via SCSI is set to become redundant, reducing the cost of sampler technology to the price of CD players when first released. The sampler is the ideal music source device for digital music. The interactivity of sampler technology will bring new possibilities to the home music scene for remixing in your living room
