what is this ?
am i completely misled, or is the only difference between the discussed
waveforms a scaling factor plus a bias ?
(good signals (-1..+1) * 0.5 + 0.5)
if so, what do you wnat to hear apart from the amplitude-difference ?
maybe the soundcard will playback the 2 waveforms differently, because
normally they can't do well with biases, but as long as you do not hear
0Hz i do not see a chance to make any differences...
