<<re: DSD
It is 1-bit coding at a high speed. Theoretically it produces lower
artifacts but these are already very low, especially if you use 24
bits at higher bit rates. I suspect a commercial motive or hype. In
practice DSD is very similar to high speed pulse width modulation

Apparently one can now edit DSD directly in Pyramix, but when DSD was intro=
duced it was necessary to convert to PCM (192k 24bit) in order to do any ed=
iting. So any supposed superiority of 1 bit over PCM recording was quickly =
lost when doing any actual production.
