I woke up this morning thinking about re-sampling on the DT, and how I’ve avoided it because you theoretically lose audio fidelity. Obviously you lose stereo, but what if mono is fine (or even preferable)?
The first thing I did was sample 33s of Pat Metheny from a YouTube video , and yes I could have started with something more pristine, but as I was testing re-sampling degrading fidelity, I felt it was a good sound source.
After I had the sample, I set up track 1 to play it, and re-sampled it internally, assigning that sample to track 2. I repeated this pattern, being careful to mute previous track until I got the last sample on track 8. The sample on track 8 had been re-sampled internally 7 times.
Here is the result as an A:B test - use your ears to guess which one is the 8th gen sample, and which one is the original:
I won’t reveal which is which until a few of you have had a chance to guess.
