    What does clock jitter sound like?

    Why I started this thread! Recently there have been several threads where the "sound" of clock jitter has been mentioned. These discussions seem to get "lost" in the diversity of the forum and points are often repeated. Hence I thought it would be worthwhile starting this thread to collate...

    When to use LDC vs SDC?

    I couldn't find this specific topic covered. If you choose to mention brand names, that's okay, but I'm not here to ask what kind of mic I should buy. 1-What does one typically use an LDC for? What about an SDC? And why? 2-I'm a guy on a budget, don't make my living in a studio, and I have...

    Newbie RAM questions

    Sorry to have to ask these but I see slightly varying opinions on #1. 1. With a ddr4 2133mhz stock ram, would I see any improvement in performance with say 2400, 3000, Ect? Is this determined by the motherboard? what about when overclocking, even if the max the computer can handle is 2133mhz...

    Hi Like many others, I want to achieve the least amount of latency etc., using a USB sound interface. My computer has various USB ports/controllers. 2 x USB2 - 2 x USB3 - 2 x USB3 front. I believe someone said it is best to keep the sound interface on it's own separate USB controller/channel...

    Lifespan of surge protectors?

    How do I know when a surge protection device has outlived its usefulness? I have 2 Furman M-8LX units that I used in a small concert hall 3 or 4 times a week for about 4 years. I also have an Aris 614 unit that I've used in my home studio for at least 20 years (!). They still distribute power...
