The 720p webcam is all my computerís graphics card can push anyway. I think the bottom line is that the analog compressor is WAY more valuable than I thought for my style of singing and playing.
Tying the compressor to 96k/24-bit seems like a "curious" (being generous here) design choice. I mean, why 96k, and for that matter, if you're compressing, do you really even need 24-bit at that point? (It's certainly been reduced to 16-bit equivalent by the time it's streamed.)
