Happy weekend everyone. As you may have noticed, over the last couple of posts there have been some changes. I decided to bring BTG to the next level and start offering 24 bit/96 kHz high resolution files. I already record everything in 32 Bit float. I decided since I already have high resolution, why not make it available to you as well. Not many blogs are doing this or even offering lossless. We are one of the first to do this, and other blogs have followed in BTG’s lead. The 24 bit files are much larger than the standard 16 bit FLAC and MP3 files, but the resolution is much better. Think of 24 bit audio as you would think of HD resolution on your TV; 24 bit is HD for your stereo. The larger files and longer download time should be worth waiting for if you are an audio geek like me. I have been toying with this idea for a long time. I have gotten many people asking for 24 bit/96 kHz resolution. So, I decided to go ahead and do it. I was originally going to wait until the start of the new year, but I am impatient. Also included in the 24 bit download is the lossless artwork @600 dpi png format. I did resize the images to 1250 pixels. The original image sizes are huge and would make the files even larger. As for past posts, I may go back over time and re-visit some of the older posts to add 24/96 links. Have a great weekend.
