Thanks, RBJ, for your thoughts. Today, the majority of DSPs and DAWs use floating point. I’m using an incredible digital monitor controller, the Grace M908, which is one of the few DSP-based devices out there still using fixed point (with the death of Motorola). Grace is using a 32 bit FIXED POINT DSP. Which gives us an amazing 192 dB of fixed point coding between full scale and the LSB. Notice that I didn’t say “dynamic range”, but coding as I don’t want to get into that argument.
