we recently ported the buzzhost to linux ( = aldrin). a default
convention in this program is to mix into float buffers in the -32768 to
32767 range. only recently we changed all the code to keep to -1 .. 1.
it has been claimed numerous times that buzz' sound quality was worse
than what you are used to. i couldn't hear that and i blame it on lack
of talent and mastering skills on the artists side, but i'm still
curious whether an implementation such as above can significantly impact
on the dynamic quality of digital music.
what do you say?
