Resampler usage

Hi,

I would like to know what resamplers (if any) the people here use. I personally much prefer SSRC (now version 1.33) from Naoki Shibata, normal profile settings for most conversions (if they are required). You can specify further in replies and also e.g. specify the settings you use if the resampler is configurable (such as SoX - passband/aliasing/phase).

Thank you for answering!

I'm not really surprised that SoX is the winner in this poll, though I just don't understand why. I admit I also used it for a while, but it gets on my nerves after a while. I much prefer the foobar2000 included dBPoweramps/SSRC resampler. It is absolutely transparent, while SoX almost sounds like some exciter VST. Don't tell me that resamplers are transparent in generell. They are not. Use some good headphones (I use my +20 year old Stax) and make a A/B comparision of voices.

PS: I am aware this is old. I thought I'd still share my thoughts. DON'T USE SoX! :)

Show us ABX proof before you confidently spread BS.

I don't have to show you anything. If you want to use that inferior SoX resampler, then do it, because I don't give a damn how your music sounds. Just do a comparision yourself. If you can't hear the difference between them then your stereo is just crap. And now go and play with your SoX settings.

Oh, it doesn't work that way here. By making account here, you agreed to Terms Of Service, and TOS 8 is one of them:

TOS 8. All members that put forth a statement concerning subjective sound quality, must -- to the best of their ability -- provide objective support for their claims.  Acceptable means of support are double blind listening tests (ABX or ABC/HR) demonstrating that the member can discern a difference perceptually, together with a test sample to allow others to reproduce their findings.  Graphs, non-blind listening tests, waveform difference comparisons, and so on, are not acceptable means of providing support.

We are science-based forum, and price of equipment or hi-fi "age" doesn't matter here; if you put a claim like this one, you have to prove you are right by making scientific tests.

These days many resamplers simply work. Differences in sound are imaginary. Full stop.

It is like you say the Earth is flat, and if I ask for evidence, I have to prove it is not flat.

You should take your claims somewhere else. This tries to remain a sane forum.

Cool, and bumping a poll from 2016, whose creator was banned almost that long ago.

shhhh, don't disturb the genius at work ...

... whether "work" means stubbornly repeating ABXes until getting spurious significance or "work" means putting fingers in ears and singing aloud, remains to see. But I am sure it is hard work and I am sure it is genius.
