Since hearing is approximately logarithmic, it makes sense to represent
soundsamples in a logarithmic or semi-logarithmic numberformat. Floating-
point numbers in a computer are partially logarithmic (the exponent
part), and one can even use an entirely logarithmic fixed-point number
system. The µ-law amplitude-encoding format is linear at small ampli-
tudes and becomes logarithmic at large amplitudes. This section discusses
these formats.
