Re: [ARSCLIST] Requiem for the DAT (redux, was Storage of audio CDs)
Have to admit that I haven't had to do any rate conversion, but (as they used
to say about HiFi recording up to 20 times what the average human ear could
hear) it's nice to know that it's there. It will also convert material recorded
at 32k and I do have some, from when blank DATs were a lot more expensive and
recording vintage material at half speed made no audible difference.
