Aurgghhhh, minus 1 cool point for that one. Let's just pretend those never existed.

One of the best examples of this is when the MPC came out, all the Sp1200 users noticed their drums had more grit. I "lo fi" my drums to 12 bit and lower all the time for this same effect. I still use my 4 track Akai hard disk recorder as a converter for the 16 bitness of it.

The more I think about it, the more it parallels the jump to 30 IPS from 15ips... Some people missed the grit on the drums back then too and went back.
