Re: I'm needing help on converting cassette masters to digital

The complaints I've heard about normalization is the further truncation of sample values, unless of course the factor by which the sample are multiplied is an integer. In other words, if the sample values are multiplied by, say, 1.896 any product that is not an integer is truncated, and many folk prefer to leave it alone unless the levels are so low that the sample values can be multiplied by an integer without clipping. Frankly my ears are too far gone to hear a difference, but the math speaks for itself.
