    Is the 192kHz upgrade worth it? I know its not that expensive but I am really not sold on the need for 192kHz. Thoughts?

    It is worth it if you need or want that sampling rate. Keep in mind that 192K requires and chews up a lot of resoruces as far as computing, disk space.

    Thanks AudioGraff, thats my thinking exactly, and I don't really need 192Khz, but I was should spend the 60USD just in case I want to play.

    If you think you will need 192k in the near future or for some specific client, $60 sure seems more than resonable to have that capability even if it is nothing more than to brag about or advertise to future clients that you have Crane Song 192k capability.

    I sure wish I had the HEDD to brag about...

    Update I made a mistake its $400 USD to upgrade, anyone still think its worth it?

    Gaff's comment is still valid regardless of the price
    if your curiosity is worth $400 ... then do
    if you can wait ... then don't

    if crane song never release a better upgrade deal then you may regret not

    not much help am I ?

    do it do it do it
    then tell me how good it is

    brag brag brag

    I hope that some time in the second half of the year, I'll have some time and the DIY desk might be clear of all the crap ... I may get to do some gear building again

    which THAT chips have your interest at the moment ?

    Well I have a rail of 4301's (DIP) which I don't need all of. And I wanted to buy their pre amp chip 1512. I am not partial to any package, although SMT is easier. DIP is fine too.

    yes DIP is fine
    THAT 4301 Dynamics Processor

    yes an interesting chip
    Prod Pro have a couple of references to this one and it's brothers
    The Picco Compressor is one
    I'm sure there are more thread there

    side note

    and I think Gearslutz may also have a thread

    Get a Demo Board from THAT and start experimenting
    obviously the app notes have lots of info

    I have some 1510 chips
    but just haven't had a chance to try a new circuit
    or put them into the KDMP Kev Dual Mic Pre

    interesting THAT connection

    cool thanks Kev, rather than buy the eval board I will just spin a few PCB's.
