tho, you may save some trees, and printing costs going the pdf route, then again, you may lose some paid subscriptions if the pdf's get pirated. if that is even an issue with a basically free mag..... it may seriously up the #of readers to go pdf, but tracking them will prob. be harder. really thoug...

well, it works. i get reverb through it. but my question is does it lower the quality of the sound to use a lower res IR. i can't always hear the differences in things this small, but it might be because i don't know exactly what to listen for.... or being a drummer, or having less than optimal moni...

48 kHz IR's in a 96 kHz project??

will using lower sampling frequency IRs be lower quality than hi res ones? do 24/96 irs even exist. all the free ones seem to be 48. is the difference even audible? can anyone suggest where to find some hi res ones?
thanks!
