[LAD] Xiph.org - Video:Digital Show and Tell - No difference between analog and digitally processed sound.

Thought the list would find this valuable.


I was under the impression that there was some fundamental difference
between the sound of analog and digital audio. But Monty Montgomery of
Xiph.org completely annihilates this misconception with some clever use of
analog sound reference equipment fed through a digital process and then
out to an analog oscilloscope, vs. feeding direct from analog to the
oscilloscope. The results are identical. I think Xiph have done the open
source music community quite a service here because it completely trumps,
in my opinion, the perception that electronic music put through a digital
process is somehow "inferior" to analog music.
