Re: [ARSCLIST] Fred Layn's post on the Studer list re: Quantegy
Detection would depend on the sample rate used and bit-depth. 44.1/16? I
think quite a few people could detect the difference in blind testing. 20
and 24 bit depths at higher samplerates would be harder to detect and I'd
wager that 88/24 would be all but undetectable.
I agree that analog master sources should be preserved, if only because
the next generation of digital hardware may regard terabytes as small
quantities...however, I tend to doubt that, if an existing analog
sound source is converted to a digital file without any further
processing, there exists anyone who can notice a difference?
