But if anyone adds to the "digital error syndrome," I predict that there will be mass suicide in the AE community. You'll read about it in the newspapers with headlines like: "Hundreds of Audio Engineers Jumped Out Of Windows Today." And of course, the cause will be that infernal disease called "Digititus."

ok...point taken

i wasn't taking the piss though...

i've just recorded a quartet for timpani and 16 fire extinguishers for a live contemporary dance piece.
the extinguishers hit with metal mallets have a response quite unlike anything i've heard.

Jim Johnston posted several years ago that it's very important to disable rounding when you are dithering an audio calculation. Additionally he feels all audio calculations must be dithered.

I get the impression that many people have not been taught to do this.
