    Just a bit of history ...

    The noise made when stepping the "volume" too fast is called
    "zipper noise" dating from VoltageControlledAmp days.

    Why 16bit in Win3.x ?
    16bit/44.1k was the resolution/sample-rate used by the Sony F1/501
    codecs that recorded on U-matic tape and were then transferred to CD.
    Later, the infamous Sony 3324 multitrack perpetuated this evil <g>

    Thanks for a great series of interviews,
