Resampling has negligible effects on sound quality in that scenario (res. to a higher sampling rate) and you don't really have a choice.

Your dac may support 24/96, but not 24/88.2 which is why it's complaining. DirectSound wouldn't complain because it just resamples automatically (to whatever is configured as playback format in Windows, the default is 24/48, iirc).


Resampling may have harmful effects on the sound quality, depending on the implementation of the resampling algorithm.  We've seen some pretty lousy resampling implementations that can add TONS of strange artifacts and spurious tones into the audio.

 

Just givin you a heads up!

 

Best,

Elias

I know, I was referring to fb2k's resampler which is not lousy.

And there are other great options besides the built-in one, like SoX (available as fb2k plugin on hydrogenaudio forums).

I think, personally, that Benchmark were thinking too short-term with this. Putting up some tracks isn't going to instantly translate to gear sales. I believe if they thought more long-term and established a reputation with a few good albums of recordings (maybe even one would get the ball rolling) then they'd attract a lot of interest. They might even sell the completed album as an audiophile download ala Chesky and others do.

I so agree with what you just said!

Thanks for these ideas...we'd love to hear any/all ideas you have for us! 

 

When we were developing this project, we had some ideas very similar to what you wrote above, but after talking through all the various plans of attack that we conceived - as well as the logistics involved with each - we decided that the scope and direction that we settled on is the best for everyone involved.

 

Thanks again...

-Elias

No one wants to say anything about the new release?

I think it's a fine recording. Well done, again!

Didn't even know about it! Unfortunately I have no decent computer source at the moment, I'll have to wait until I get back to college (or burn a cd) to test it out.

Yey fourth video came out. Sounds good. Though I´m not with my own setup now.

Thanks.



MDR 7506 FTW. (My first decent headphone)

BTW Very catchy tune.
