    You surely were already from the start of your promotional trip. So many posts, so many brainfu** but no time to do even a small valid test...

    FWIW, SoX uses 32 bit integer internally when passing data between each process step you specify.

    Each process step can internally use a higher resolution, some calculations use 64 bit float.

    SoX can also finally output 32 bit PCM as WAV, if you want.
    Check it, add to it! http://www.dr.loudness-war.info/

    Sure, and most DSP chips also use 32 bit (or more) internally.

    Hi again Wombat!

    I notice that you haven't explained your modded Transporter yet for our edification...

    That's more SNR than I'm going to get out of my room.

    Your point about available recordings is accepted.

    P.S. Sorry for delay, I hammerited my nose! How I laffed...

    There is no need and i don't start threads about imaginary things i daydream to be heard just because i wasted 2000$ on something that adds no improvement.
    I sometimes mod things for fun because i can. How was your latest SMD soldering going?

    I'm all for a bit of fun.

    What does "SMD" stand for, please? I'm having trouble understanding your banter, old chap!

    Surface Mount Device - a newer way to solder parts to circuit cards while avoiding soldering and bending wires and drilling holes in the circuit cards for those wires. The parts are glued to the board with high temperature epoxy and soldered in an oven that melts solder on the boards to solder on the parts. The parts can be very tiny, so magnifyling glasses are often used. Requires re-equipping and re-training people who assemble and repair the new style boards.

    Thanks for the heads-up Arny!

    I get the idea but don't think it's my idea of fun.

    My oven's strictly for cooking...
