    Derkoli got a reaction from tikker in Is there actually a difference between 16bit 44.1kHz and 24bit 192kHz audio   
    You tend to master at 32 bit because of all the headroom you can have with it. You don't have to worry about clipping the hell out of something. 192kHz is just nice because you can oversample to help cut down phase distortion and help eliminate aliasing.

    God that's a can of worms.
     
    Like other's have said, the Nyquist theorem dictates the highest frequency that can be constructed by certain sampling rates. So 44.1kHz is absolutely fine.
     
    When put simply, Bit Depth just dictates the dynamic range. 16 bit is 96dB, but with noise shaping it can attain 120dB+ of Dynamic Range.
     
    IMO, 16 bit 44.1kHz/CD quality is just fine for home use. I do however use much higher sampling rates and bit depths to master, as it has been shown that working at higher sampling rates/bit depths when mastering then downsampling to 44.1kHz produces better subjective results over just working at 24bit/44.1kHz.
     
    When I listen, I prefer to either have 24 bit/44.1kHz files or higher, as my DAC's are capable of over 16 bits of resolution.
     
    Another thing: The Mastering of the audio will matter much more than the difference between 44.1kHz and 192kHz.

    Derkoli reacted to H713 in How Can I Bass Boost Like That Guy ?   
    Generally speaking, "bass boost" would come from some form of equalization. Most of the time, when applied to speech, it doesn't sound good- it's just extremely annoying.
     
    Use EQ sparingly. Sometimes I put a low-cut on speech, depending on the microphone used. In general, if you're making drastic boosts or cuts with an EQ, there's another problem that you need to solve. EQ is not a solution for an inappropriate microphone or poor placement. 
     
    I looked at the video very briefly and all I heard was extreme distortion. I don't see why anyone would want to do that for a speech track.

    You can also use cash to buy drugs. This means absolutely nothing.
     
    The majority of people who lost money (possibly even their life savings) arent miners, they are people who invested in cryptocurrency because they think it will raise in value the same as any other investor in the stock market. You are pretty much saying that you are glad that there are people who most if not lost everything they have which is just wrong.

    Tech youtubers need to stop perpetuating this.
    1. mining is not the problem, at least not most of it. In all likely hood, most caards are probably going to gamers (though id bet most gamers now after ltt talked about it are also miners), just so many people want cards from a very limited supply
    2. cryptoexchange =/= miners. Probably most of the people without their crypto dont know how mining works, much less do mine. This is akin to someone taking 2bil worth of stocks and selling them.
    3. anyone who think its a good thing that people got something stolen from them it has really big moral problems going on. Hell, even scalpers dont deserve to be robbed of billions.

    If John Deere should be legally allowed to break my stuff, then should I legally be allowed to break theirs?  They have a plant just a few blocks down the road from my house and I'm sure I could do a lot of damage.  That sounds like a pretty strong incentive to me.

    I'm not sure if you're trolling or being paid by some company opposing right to repair. Violence? What video were you watching?
    Laws that protect and help the consumer are necessary, and good luck with getting a phone with a replaceable battery.
    Look at companies like John Deere, if something breaks the equipment won't function correctly unless it's repaired by a technician with special tools,which means down time that isn't necessary and the farmer is loosing money when they can't get work done.
    Or Tesla, you have to go to a Tesla dealer, or one Tesla approves for any kind of repair.
    It doesn't take an engineer to figure out that planned obsolesce creates a significant amount of waste, also a product can be durable while being easily repairable by the user, look at any older laptop or phone.
    The same is happening with appliances, some company that makes a washing machine or refrigerator can either force you into paying an official technician to to fix your appliance, or even worse tell you they won't service it because they consider a 3 year old washing machine obsolete so you have to buy a new one. Planned obsolescence is happening to cars, you have to go to the dealer for repairs, and some new cars don't even have an oil or transmission dipstick, the owner can't check fluids, so the car of course isn't going to last as long if the car isn't getting basic maintenance.
    The average consumer doesn't know what they want, and for that reason the companies that oppose right to repair are spending billions to tell the consumer that right to repair is bad or dangerous.

    Crypto doesn't make illegal trading any easier than it already is. The only real problem is privacycoins whose aim is to be completely anonymous. Crypto in general is not anonymous and transactions are an open book, so if anything it makes it harder. You are only anonymous if the wallet can't be tied to you. The latest reports also show that criminal activity is lower than 1% for Bitcoin and that much more is happening with regular money. For example:
     
    This is a tricky argument. Having nothing to hide is very different from no privacy. Essentially with this you are saying that you are completely fine with any random person entering your house, going through all your possessions, reading all your emails and texts you've sent, listen to every phone call you made etc. Think about this:

    Derkoli reacted to H713 in Sharing my experience with audio on pc for playback performance   
    Short answer is it won't matter. The clock speeds of your microprocessor and your memory shouldn't affect an external DAC (which if you're using SPDIF coax to a pioneer receiver, that's an external DAC). In fact, they shouldn't affect an internal DAC. In a system with rather poor grounding, shielding and decoupling schemes, you may notice an increase in the noise floor when overclocking. 
     
    The first 15 minutes of this video are worth a watch. 
     
    As Ethan points out, most of us who do audio production know the experience of EQing a track *to absolute perfection*, then realizing the EQ was bypassed or that you were tweaking the EQ on the adjacent channel strip. Keep in mind that the sonic changes from an EQ are far, far more noticeable than those from swapping out reasonably competent equipment.

    Derkoli got a reaction from RoseLuck462 in Linus should buy $50k worth of Dogecoin!   
    Dogecoin is so flawed, it's actually fairly funny.
     
    10,000 Dogecoin has to be bought every single minute, or around 2600 USD as of right now, for it's price to hold steady. This doesn't sound like much, but most people in the cryptocurrency world are doing the tried and tested HODL method to make money. Which can only really be done by investing in a stable coin that has certain features coded into it. Such as BTC or ETH. It shouldn't be done on a coin that is so pump and dump, like DOGE is.
     
    Coins that aren't crazy inflationary, like ETH are the ones you want to sit with to make long term money. Ethereum was forcasted to have around 150,000,000 coins in circulation as of right now in its white paper. But it only has 113,000,000 in circulation. Ethereum is a good store of value IMO.
     
    Anyways, DOGE is already starting to lose value after a bull run.
     

     
    There's also alot of huge red flags with DOGE. Such as the fact that a single address owns 28% of all DOGE in circulation.
     

     
    Big in supply sure. But not market cap. Atleast I don't think so.
     
     
    As with anything, this ain't financial advice. Also please don't go around saying "Yeah you should put (insert amount of money here) into this thing"
