Re: Why no 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz Sample Rates available for Mix Down

Can you explain please Simply that he's selling people on the idea that less is good enough, bucking the trend toward higher res music. If more people thought there was a benefit to higher res music, there might be less interest in lossy codecs. Tell people that hi res music is snake oil or a falla...

Re: Why no 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz Sample Rates available for Mix Down

...However, one thing I know is true and that there is a conflict of interest since this fella is plugging his lossy codec to the world. Can you explain please? Certainly he created the ogg/vorbis format and codec but since they are free and open source I fail to see how he could be 'plugging' them...

Re: Why no 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz Sample Rates available for Mix Down

...I personally hear the difference when I’m working at 48/24 and on some projects 96/24 definitely sounds better to me. I don’t hear a huge difference at 192, but there are plenty of engineers who have much better ears than me and who’s opinion I respect immensely who absolutely swear by 192/24......

Re: Why no 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz Sample Rates available for Mix Down

... so record your sources at 24 bit, but work in a DAW with floating point mixers and processing (I think they all do now) and print your final mixes at 32 bit float.. That is bizarre to say the least. What, in the world, is going to play back those 32bits, other than high-spec studio software and...

Re: Why no 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz Sample Rates available for Mix Down

...I must say that this topic of sample rates and bit depths sure does seem to polarize people does it not i.e. I've yet to find another topic where both sides of the argument are so vigorously defended!!! LOL!!!... It does indeed, yet there is no need need for it. If people stuck with the facts th...

Re: Why no 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz Sample Rates available for Mix Down

It's a huge topic, and you get mad props for delving so deep. You also get mad props for making a u-turn afer being confronted with the evidence. Most people would stick to their initial guns in order to save face, regardless of the facts. Ultimately I would say: if you (i.e. anyone) think you can g...

Re: Why no 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz Sample Rates available for Mix Down

...Whatever the case I guess what I'm saying is that from these findings and for me anyway: it's not even optional to work at a different sample rate (let alone a very high sample rate that is even further away from your intended distribution format) from the one that your'e going to finally mix do...

Re: Why no 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz Sample Rates available for Mix Down

...The result was noise i.e. you could very faintly hear a sort of "scratch" that was in time with the beat of the original drum track.... Tecnically that should not happen. I'm guessing it is some glitch to do with converting from 32 bit floating point. It's definitely not anything to do...

Re: Why no 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz Sample Rates available for Mix Down

You've converted the sample rate. What you are hearing is artifacts created by the conversion process, not the actual difference between the quality of the individual files.

BTW you didn't invert the phase, you reversed the polarity.

Re: Why no 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz Sample Rates available for Mix Down

Looks like it could be useful but of course there is nothing to stop you from simply reversing the polarity on one of two files in MC and listening to the difference. In fact I recommend it if you want to prove to yourself that 4 bits is indistinguishable from 24 bits.

Re: Why no 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz Sample Rates available for Mix Down

It's certainly important to have enough knowledge and understanding to know the difference between what works and wha...

Re: Why no 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz Sample Rates available for Mix Down

Nice post! Bit depth, at least so far as I've been able to ascertain, can and does make a difference. Not really. Bit depth is simply the level of the noise floor. At 16 bits the noise floor is inaudible, so anything higher is literally superfluous. Each bit has 6db of dynamic range; since most rock...

So instead of simply not posting you used some of your precious time to perform a hand-waving exercise. Don't worry, I'm sure everybody on this forum is aware of your presence.

Re: Why no 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz Sample Rates available for Mix Down

...88.2kHz-96kHz "is not that far from the optimum (of 50kHz-60kHz)". It would seem, based on the information, that 176.4kHz and 192kHz are problematic (from what I gather for the same reasons as you, and aj113, pointed out in the first place I guess)... Higher sample rates are a potentia...
