Apparently, you're supposed to listen to music in 44.1hz.
Computers are default to 48hz (standard for film and such) and without some research there's no obvious indication that this is how it's supposed to be.
With how much people listen to music, I feel I should have come across this knowledge sooner as it should be more common parlance. It's not hard at all to change either.
my guess is jewish conspiracy
Higher 'hz' doesn't mean better quality, when it comes to audio processing; it's more about matching the 'hz', to process it at the same...whatever it is.
I guess it's like getting a image that fills half your screen, in its original form, and stretching it to fill your entire screen.
I guess I'm lucky then but it was in 44.1hz by default.
Most likely. I'm usually really sensitive to minute changes in tone, pitch, etc, but I didn't notice any difference at all when changing it.
It's still interesting information, though.
I noticed it heaps. In fact, in the beginning, I wasn't sure what I was hearing was good or not because it was so different to what I was used to.
It's less dense, in 44.1, in that the sound is more spread out so you can hear more of each instrument.
And I don't mean spread out as in pulling it thin but spread out as in to lay perfectly flat as before it was squished.
I think it may be more pronounced at higher volumes. I tested it first on speakers which I turn to a moderate-loud volume.
I think I noticed a slight increase in clarity for songs with a very high pitch, but I wasn't 100% certain if it was legitimate or only seemed that way because I was listening for it.
Then again, it could boil down to a difference in our sound systems. I'm running some fairly old speakers.
My sound system on computer is basic stuff as well.
I also don't hear too much of a difference on my computer and, actually, the first time I tried it and heard the amazing difference was when I changed it on my PS3.
My computer is stock from an office so the sound card is pretty trash, I learnt recently, but the PS3 actually has a very good sound card and so that's why I noticed such an improvement on that.
