Re: Resampling bounced audio after audio interface upgrade

Quote rdavila: I have previously
recorded audio, which was accomplished through average AD converters and now want to
resample through better ones. Will this increase the fidelity or the audio file?
EW has hit the nail on the head. The
sound quality is set by the first A-D conversion and nothing you can do (easily) will
improve on that. At best passing through another converter won't make any audible changes,
but it's more likely that further degradation will take place.
However, it is
possible that that 'technical degradation' -- which might involve benign distortion
products -- might be perceived as musically beneficial. In other words it might sound
nicer, even if it measures worse.
