2007/3/29, Dragan Noveski :

Well, I was assuming you are recording with ardour, timemachine or
some other jack-based app. These use float internally and at least the
first two also save to disk in float-format. Which means that 32bit
are 32bit regardless if you are near to 0 or using the whole -1..1
range.
And as float-format means x.xxxEyy you won't loose any quality if the
. moves forth and back...

But as I said, I prefer hot levels too. And float-format also helps
for this as you don't get overflows in the normal audio-range which
means you can save files where amplitude goes beyond -1..1-range. You
should limit/scale that on playback though...

Wenn man mit Raubkopien Bands wie Brosis oder Britney Spears wirklich
verhindern könnte, würde ich mir noch heute einen Stapel Brenner und
einen Sack Rohlinge kaufen.
