Oh I see. So whats this Pro tools 48bit mixer talk about that goes on in the
industry?
Why would it be better or more precise than the Ardour mixer (which i prefer
over Protools).
Is it another one of these?

some people pay $3000 for a piece of cable and two connectors, or makes
them spend money on machines to replace old and tired electrons by fresh
young ones which sound better.
- The same wave of nonsense now hits also the software world.<=
