Re: Sample Rate for professionals

It's worth mentioning that the purpose of making a recording is to advance the artist's career. A bunch of reviewers, broadcasters and promoters will be making decisions about the artist's future...

Re: Sample Rate for professionals

It wasn't even the size of the disk. The CD was a marriage between Philips' video disk that could be replicated in a vinyl plant and Sony's digital recording system that employed video recorders....

Re: Sample Rate for professionals

Certainly 44.1k is a pretty adequate release format but a lot of common signal processing used for mixing simply sounds better at 48k or double that after being converted to 44.1k for release. The...

Re: Mac Pro - higher Single Core Speed or more Cores

All things being equal, faster core speed trumps the number of cores.

That said for audio, it's really about floating point calculations per second so you always want the latest CPU generation....

Re: number of Protools users in the U.S.

I haven't seen an 8 channel pop song in 50 years! Modern pop songs are 50-100 plus. The time required is entirely dependent on how well it was performed and recorded.

Re: AVID swinging from MAC to PC??

His job requires a PC.

That said, Apple's new OS of the month might not be such a great idea until after Apple settles down again.

Re: Migrating to Mac from windows
