Doesn't downsampling it to 16bit defeat the purpose? Might as well just buy a CD.
Ahhhh, but if it's level matched, would it be an audible difference? Just think, you'd have two presentations, essentially the same regarding the way they were mixed.
It's not a very discriptive piece. I'm confused. Is it or is it not a 6 track recorder?
Agreed Rachel. I'm drafting an inquiry to the students for any additional information I can get. Regardless, I'll post the responses. Interesting though, don't you think? Damned college kids. Now if only high schoolers had gotten at it, we'd already have a means!
Me thinks a 6 track recorder would be purr-dy popular. Just wait till the R.I.A.A. hears about this!
Could it be a 6 channel PCM? Is there such a standard? Perhaps there is, somewhere, but one would also require a player. I'm thinking all this does is convert a 6 channel SACD into a 2 channel PCM. What's the point? Well, for starters, you can buy the SACD for your home system, and then burn a stereo PCM copy for your car system. Sounds like a great idea to me (until of course SACD becomes standard on all car-audio decks)! - Mike
6-channel PCM is definitely a standard. Not only does the DVD-A format include 6-channel PCM, but surround SACDs are typically mixed this way!
Well I got a reply, presumably from the person heading that investigation which follows. So....it was mixed down to two channels. I'd imagine that would ruin it for just about all of us. Although, I'd think there must be a way of getting it on DVD. Anyways, I hope some found it of interest.
