Porcupine Tree - clippingsThis is the second track from Porcupine Tree “Deadwing” called “Shallow”.

WYSIWYG… It sounds just like the graph in SND.  Especially if upsampled without decreasing the volume – like badly scratched disk. And yes, loud. Can it be any worse?

/usr/local/bin/sox effects: polyphase clipped 329755 samples; decrease volume?
