However, I was very disappointed to read their latest blog on ‘mastering for iTunes’.
While the 16-bit 44.1 kHz file may be best for CD duplication, it won’t sound as good in the digital domain.
This is blatantly untrue and ignorant. There is enough nonsense and misunderstand about digital audio on the internet as it is, and a respected pro audio company should know better than to spread more of it.
Firstly, a 16/44.1kHz WAV file is in the digital domain, and secondly, it will be superior to an AAC or MP3.
I understand the blogs may well be a platform for one individual’s opinion, but I think they should still be checked for factual accuracy.
