    Julf,
    another aspect to consider from a business point is this;
    Studios like the one Bruce works at are paid (contracted) to do a specific job, if there is scope creep and checking every file for quality in terms of upsampling/filter affects/bits real and not a spoof 24-bits as an example/etc add additional time.
    So is it fair that Bruce and the studio lose out on revenue because the source contracts on a specific job without paying for the extra service?
    That said I appreciate the ones who lose out is us.
    Cheers
    Orb

    I was being very careful not to get into the 'what is fair and what is not" argument, I was just trying to make sure I understood what Bruce was saying.

    I agree with you that people like Bruce have to do what the customer specifies, and I also understand that the customer relationship and contractual details can not be discussed publicly.

    That said I appreciate the ones who lose out is us.
    As well as the studio engineers who are forced to do a sub-standard job because of cost issues.

    Cheers,

    Julf

    Appreciate that Julf and I hope mine did not seem critical of your post.
    Just was an aspect that I felt also fitted well with your comments, that possibly a few here may not had considered.

    Thanks

    Appreciated, Orb, didn't take it as critical. And you definitely have a point.

    Hi Julf.... yes, that is correct. We do not check every single track on an album. This would be cost prohibitive for the client. We were instructed to spot check, taking a couple files from each.

    I guess this rears it's ugly head every week.

    Over at SA-CD.net, the Audacity Cowboys are doing FFT on Chandos recordings. So to do an FFT on DSD material, you need to convert to PCM with NO filters. Teresa goes as far as to capture the analog signal from her SACD player???? Every SACD player has a filter to attenuate the UHF content.

    Then I see FFT plots with Blackman, Hamming, Hann, Blackman-Harris, Kaiser-Bessel and everything inbetween! I also see samples as little as 2-3 seconds and ranges that stop at -96dB

    What sayeth ye??

    Bruce,

    It's human nature, especially on the internet, to find fault with others. The anonymity provided by screen names and distance tempts people to behave in a manner that they would never consider when addressing you in person. In this case, there is virtually no penalty to them for failing to follow good scientific rigor (except for a little loss-of-face for their screen name).

    That, in itself, might be a good reason for WBF to have all members have their real name on their profiles...... It would increase the credibility of member suggestions, postings, etc. You wouldn't put something here that you don't believe and would stand behind in real life.

    Well, Gary, both our names are out there, as well as Bruce and many others here. It would be nice if others were to follow suit.
