    The problem I've always had with mega combo burrito filter name is it implies there are two lesser products, the burrito filter and the combo burrito filter, with the mega version being the "biggest." On the positive side though it leaves open the possibility of a super burrito filter or even enchilada-style, and all the subsidiary versions such as the bean-and-cheese, the carne asada and the breakfast burrito filters. But I suppose this puts us into yet another area of mythology....

    Ahhhccctuallllyyy...there is technically both a MegaComboBurrito filter and a ComboBurrito filter.

    The "Mega" was what Mike came up with for the very long, 8X filter used in Yggdrasil and Gungnir, to differentiate it from a shorter implementation in less capable DSPs in past products from his previous companies, and then the "plain-ol Combo" he used for the shorter 4X filter in Bifrost and Modi Multibit.

    All in all, yeah, messy and confusing, and I'll be talking to Mike about what to call it going forward (one name, thanks, we're not going to do "regular, mega, and lite" versions, oh hell no, sorry, life is too friggin short). Mike probably has ideas of his own, some of which may be much better than mine.

    Hmmm. Right now you support up to 192 kHz, but here you chose 768 kHz as the cutoff point... pair that with the unused x8 LED on the Yggy and you have me curious. :wink:

    I vote MultiSchiit because it rhymes.

    Yeah! True multibit sound nice, Janus too, but why mix norse and roman mythology,, i think i still prefer Mega combo burrito in that case :D


    - A Vegvísir (filter) (Icelandic 'sign post') is an Icelandic magical stave intended to help the bearer find their way through rough weather. It is said that "if this sign is carried, one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known".

    True Multibit sounds good, or how about Multibit M.D. , due to the relationship of using medical device dacs, and could also mean "Murders Delta/Sigma"

    For the filter, I like Berkeley Filter, George Berkeley is the first known mathmetician to write about the division by zero formula. He was also the namesake for University of California Berkeley.

    Or Heimdall Filter, just because the character of Heimdall in Thor universe is awesome, and so is the filter.

    Bragi filter...
  12. JohnnyCanuck
    The Bragi company may have something to say about that.

    I’ll be happy as long as you don’t use Tall, Grande, or Venti....

    If we can offer filter names i'd recommend sticking to Norse mythology...say the Norse god of Beauty. Baldr.

    This is really quite brilliant, since Mike uses the handle "Baldr" here on Head-fi, and he invented the filter. +1
