It's really not a huge deal...just read the tweakheadz article I referenced above (and other articles like this one
). And make up your mind from there.
Those are good articles
I'm a girl geek who actually buys CDs. And also listens to the odd vinyl record. And plays most of my music as FLAC even on my phone. And all the guys I work with insist "there's no difference between FLAC and mp3 320k".
Well, *I* can hear a difference. In the treble, high hats, the clarity of acoustic guitars.
And the interwebs is full of folks who say how "hi fi geeky" and ridiculous it is to want anything other than a 320 mp3.
I see the 24/96 thing as *similar*... in that if it yields a better 16/44 overall product...that's a good thing.
Although, I'm not really convinced about the trend towards "studio master" FLAC downloads (eg. hdtracks website).
I'm sticking with 16bit, 96kHz recording, mixing and mastering.
I *love* how Mixcraft makes it possible for me to learn all these things!
