Art DI/O digital conversion

Post by Vince » Tue Aug 17, 2004 7:24 am

How important is digital conversion, is there a big difference in sound quality? Right now I'm guessing I have a mediocre sound card, it's the card that came with my G4 computer. I'm using an all right mixer as a mic preamp and mixing in ProTools. I’ve read good things about the Art DI/O as an inexpensive way to make junk sound cards sound decent. Has anyone used these or other converters? <BR> <BR>Vince

the importance of conversion quality: <BR> <BR>The first time I used MP3 files &#40;128k&#41; I listened to them using a good headphone &#40;~200 Euro/$&#41; connected to a cheapo terratec soundcard &#40;~20 Euro/$&#41;. I couldn't tell the difference between the MP3 and the original 16bit 48kHz audio file! <BR> <BR>If I listen to MP3s on my current setup I can clearly hear the difference. So for me it's no question that conversion quality DOES matter. <BR> <BR>I don't know about the ART converter you mention though.. <BR><IMG SRC="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... laster.gif">
