I'm not very good at electronics or digital but a doubt came to my head when i was going over some material right now. In analog gear, whenever you use an eq etc, you change the phase, backwards or forward, of the voltage or of the current because of what inductors etc do to the signal running through it. however, if you use the same device in digital domain, does the 'plug-in' also work on changing the phase of the voltage and current separately, like a set of inductors and capacitors would? The AD process, as far as i know of it now, samples only the voltage changes to convert to bits of digital audio. how does a voltage lag or current lag affect the process of AD and does it make a difference to the sound? i've also learnt that the way the phase of the voltage and current components are changed determines how good the device is. since these changes in phase are inevitable, it just matters how it is done. that's why a neve eq sounds better than a mackie eq. am i on the right track? also, the digital and AD doubt is bothering me.
