    Abstract

    This paper offers an approach to the implications of digitising a radio station's audio archive, based on a case study of the public broadcaster Catalunya Ràdio. Beyond the unquestionable importance of factors such as technical equipment, software or standards of compression, and storage and indexing, the conversion of an audio file into binary code has other implications that are briefly reviewed. The essential parts of this process can be summarised as follows: changes in professional profiles and production routines, the integration of languages, and the possible universality of documentary resources.
