So you are transferring a digital 48 kHz signal direct from the Sony
TCD-D10, via a USB connection, to a computer sound application?  Do you then
convert the signal to 44.1 kHz for processing, within the computer?  I am
presently transferring sound from a TCD-D10 into an iMac using analogue
connections but I must say it works brilliantly well.  This also overcomes
the 48-44 conversion problem, and means that I can process sounds to a high
standard, on a budget.  But have I missed something with this USB digital
connection method?
