From what I understand of Wilson, he's not exactly objective when it comes to digital audio. On the other hand he does use a Line 6 Pod.
I do go on the forums sometimes, and I see there are those people who say CDs are low-rez, which is pretty crazy to me since I think CDs still sound pretty good, generally speaking. There’s a snobbery toward 44.1-kHz/16-bit; nothing but 96/24 will do now. Which is an amazing kind of mindshift, but that suits me fine. All of my Blu-rays are 96/24, and I’m recording that way too. Neil Young records at 192, which is insane.
It is possible to do analog pitch shifting although I doubt any TT on the market does.
