    Default DDi Codec (software Dolby-C and Dolby-B compander)

    A very interesting looking piece of software but I am not sure what we could use it for?

    Interesting and not that expensive either.

    I think the benefits of this would depend on how tweakable it was to handle the generational and hardware deviations from a perfectly recorded signal in the analogue domain. They do address this in the notes. How successfully would be something for experimentation, though I suspect that you would have to spend a lot of time with it to fully understand how to set it up optimally for a particular recording.

    My final thought is that this probably wouldn't result in appreciably better sound than careful EQ, other than on a pristine tape. If a tape is already exhibiting generational loss, the accuracy of proper Dolby decoding would probably be lost. Obviously just my opinion...

    This sounds a little complicated for my brain to comprehend, but interesting. If anyone can understand and put it to good use I can think of one person, who looks to be on hiatus again, perhaps.
