Episode 22 is up and being delivered to all the podcast platforms right now.
In this episode I interview Accurate Sound's Mitch Barnett. Mitch has been involved in digital signal processing for many years, including writing a book, contributing several articles to Audiophile Style (@mitchco) on the topic, and recently starting his own company called Accurate Sound. I talked to Mitch about digital signal processing, some of the myths and reasons people may have dismissed it in the past, and what we can look forward to in the future. Mitch also discusses his room calibration service, his new software convolution engine called Hang Loose Convolver, and something new he is working on. Enjoy

As much as I'd love to deliver this show to everyone in lossless high resolution audio, the podcast platforms only accept MP3. So, I record everything as lossless WAV files using a Neumann TLM 103 transformerless cardioid condenser microphone, then convert to 320 Kbps MP3 to give everyone the best quality currently possible. Given that I'm using a Merging Technologies Anubis analog to digital converter to record, I technically could do everything at DXD (384 kHz) or DSD256, but that's a bit over the top, even for me.
A big thanks to David Chesky for allowing me to use the track East Harlem, from the album The Body Acoustic. The album can be purchased and downloaded at 24/96 from the Chesky Records site here.
