If you check the Big Finish What’s New page regularly (even if there’s nothing expected) you might have noticed a few old titles appear recently. Only today I noticed Whispers of Terror and before that I spotted Project: Lazarus.
You might wonder what is going on; I’ll explain…
Re-sampling the downloads
When Big Finish first started downloads they were sampled at a 160 kbps. Now bandwidth and disc space are cheaper and people want higher quality. I used to sample CDs at 192 kbps and moved first to 256 and now 320 kbps (yes I should look at FLAC – that’s a different conversation). Big Finish has started to upgrade its downloads to a sample rate of 256 kbps and is slowly working through the back catalogue in a strange order.
I have decided to produce a page listing all titles that have been updated – please let me know of any I miss.
