Legal Lineage

Can someone please confirm if this is a legal lineage.

Pre-fm> md > wav

I am guessing the answer is probably no, because the pre-fm to md would be considered lossy. But i'm a little unsure as the hopes of a pre-fm>wav are non-existent.

Thanks.

Re: Legal Lineage

Analog FM (uses amplitude compression) > Hi-MD (wav format=uncompressed) is allowed

Analog FM (uses amplitude compression) > ATRAC MD (a lossy codec) is not allowed

Pre FM > Hi-MD (uncompressed) is allowed

Pre FM > ATRAC MD (lossy codec) is allowed

All new ATRAC MD recordings made after 1/1/2008 will not be allowed, as The Traders' Den is improving its standards. This gives people time to upgrade their gear to Hi-MD or WAV recorders, whose prices are coming down.

Re: Legal Lineage

thanks !!

I'm pretty sure it will be Analog Fm > atrac, so the answers no. Which is a shame but understandable.

Re: Legal Lineage

In your first post you said it would be pre fm > md, which would be allowed whether it is ATRAC or Hi-MD (wav)
