The AS folder and the User Home Folder host all the components required to use AudioSculpt.
The User Home Folder contains storage directories where the persistent files used and produced at a session can be organized. The AudioSculpt folder, which is created at the application's installation is the default User Home folder. Additionnaly to the storage folders, it contains the application, a kernel, utilities, a documentation. Files can then be open subsequently in AudioSculpt, or other applications.
In computing, the kernel is the central component of most computer operating systems; it is a bridge between applications and the actual data processing done at the hardware level.
