The square of the hypotenuse is the sum of the square of the other two sides.
M=y2-y1
-------
x2-x1

For graphs and such, it's hardly a formula but it would be used tonnes

Or f(x) = X^n f'(x) = n.X^n-1

^ Also knows as the chuck norris equation

Anyways... you mind elaborating on it, TS?

Gradient = Change in X divided by change in Y

Wavespeed = Velocity multiplied by wavelength

... I am intrigued.

What school is this? Over-Simplification school?

ΔMi−1 = −αΣn=1NDi[n][Σj∈C{i}Fji[n − 1][n−1]

I hear Warp Records likes this one a lot.

If anyone knows what I am talking about, they get an E-cookie.

Basic algebra for licenses and royalties. Slightly more advanced algebra for accounting.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I doubt they'd be clumsy enough to leave one whole sentence of an equation.

e=mc2 for working out energy

You see now, the mass of this Audio Workstation is about three kilograms. Yes, technology today has brought us to the point where we can recreate machinery and furniture with marshmallows you see! Anyways, multiply that by the speed of light (the speed limit of the universe *chuckles malevolently*) and you get energy needed to lift your lazy ass out of bed and go to work like the rest of us!

...Jeepers that is a lot of energy there kiddo - anyways, I'm out for a night on the town in my new knee-high socks. Wish me luck!

Can you tell me what's special about said song?

If you view it through a spectogram you can see Rich James' face.

Either you're awesome or you're versed in the ways of Google. I'll assume it's the first.

Either way, I still don't have a clue what TS wants.
Eh, what for?

For actual recording, signal analysis is important as is classical control theory. Fourier series and integral transforms probably play a big role in the software behind recording equipment. Of course, computers can't actually do calculus like that, so they'd have to use numerical methods of solving ordinary and partial differential equations, and decomposing/recomposing the signals.

I'd say as a basic rule, many physical equations to do with waves and damping are kinda important.

But if you mean accounting and stuff like that, not a great deal of advanced maths is needed. Some basic stats will cover it.

Your OP is kinda ambiguous though.

It's worth mentioning that we are talking about Richard D. James, and not Rick James.

They actually made shoes with this on them, lemme find a link.
