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

...At the core here is the fact that I would probably, always, need the same audio at 48kHz and 44.1kHz i.e. two seperate audio tracks but one for video and one for audio. .. That makes sense. I think that when converting the sampling rate, a converter first reconstructs the original audio, then 'r...

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

And the misconception, I guess, comes from those little diagrams that everybody puts out on the Internet.... Exactly right. The math involved in the downsampling may cause that reverb to not decay as smoothly from point A to point B but maybe by re-recording the audio as suggested it would sort of ...

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

So from my tests: working at the same sample rate as your intended final product (in my case CD at the moment) is "as good as it gets". Please believe me that there are differences even between 48kHz and 44.1kHz and they become more pronounced the further apart your sample rates are... Co...

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

...Yet there are many cases where we are told about something as a fact when it is really a theory... You are aware that a theory is fact? Your point seems to be: it doesn't matter what anyone says, even if they are a world leader on the topic, and regardless of the fact that the evidence is peer-r...

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...

...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.
