oh that’s a lovely thing to say.
• All sample speeds from 4kHz to 48kHz are accepted and handled by the Machinedrum UserWave. Higher rates are accepted but the samples are downsampled to half the sampling speed."
but that is referring to what happens if a sampling rate is above 48000hz.
as relates to lower sampling rates of 22050 and 44100, all it says are that they are “accepted and handled”. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Machinedrum manual. Currently making an illuminated/illustrated version of it like a bohemian Book of Kells or something glitter glue for the win.
actually i was referring to the information about there being two internal tiers of resampling, 22.05kHz and 44.1kHz.
if a sample has a sampling rate of 5000 hz (lol, low quality but it is possible), it would seem the Machinedrum will not convert it to 44100hz but rather 22050hz instead.
and likewise, if a sample is 48000hz, the information i found stated that the Machinedrum would autoconvert it to 44100hz.
so i find that fascinating, that there are two tiers of sampling rate conversion, and it happens automatically within the Machinedrum according to certain parameters.
I am still not quite sure if it is true, but if it is, that means it is possible to theoretically put twice as many samples in the Machinedrum if targeting the 22050hz sampling rate ‘option’.
edit: or should i say, twice as much allowable sample time, within the allowable amount of samples (32 for mkI or 48 for mkII).
