DQ reader Zy Ho let me know after last week's Friday Links post that I was incorrect in referring to the Pioneer's PDSP-1 Digital Sound Projector as the "first digital sound processor."

I was way, way off.

DSPs have been around for over three decades, with AT&T (courtesy of Bell Labs), NEC, and Texas Instruments releasing units before 1981. Here's the Wikipedia entry if you're interested, and thanks to Zy for the correction.
