comment Is there any real-world difference between time signatures such as 4/4 and 8/8?
Apart from @NReilingh's comment, it should also be added to the answer that (at least theoretically) the time signature makes a difference for the conductor's stroke pattern.

comment How to properly tune drum heads?
@Stunner: Done... Unfortunately; I don't have a permanent, "official" link, but googling for "Drum Tuning Bible" should return something in case the link breaks again.

+1 for mentioning that in theory, it doesn't matter.

comment What are the advantages of point to point (PTP) wiring?
I'd say it's exactly the opposite. Theoretically, there's a small difference concerning the signal quality, coupling and so on. The amount and sign of the difference depends on the PCB and PTP designer, it's possible to deliver bad designs in both approaches. Practically however, there is no hearable difference in sound.

comment How to convert recorded Piano music to midi?
While I strongly encourage the "by-ear" method, it should be noted that there is indeed some software that is able to decompose audio tracks to single notes. It's called melodyne and seems to work quite well for single instrument tracks, judging from the press releases. I've never tried it myself, though...
