New updated Hardware not software bumps for the motion picture industry. 384k/64.

Ugh.. 384 voices is the upgrade they want, not 384 kilohertz

The voice count (of current HDX1) already halves to 128 at 96k, and 64 at 192k, so at 384k it would be 32 voices or only four 7.1 tracks.. I bet it isn't quite acceptable if they are now struggling with voices with HDX3

The motion picture industry does not operate at these sample rates.
The highest you'll find is 96kHz in use (and rarely.)

What kind of hardware ‘upgrade’ do you want? More DSP? More voices? Different I/O? Please be more specific.

He just said, apparently 384kHz sampling is now "it" and we cannot produce high-quality mp3's without

Personally I am waiting for the 772 kHz MP3 before I re-rip my CD-collection.
