Replicating an experiment for faulty sound cards

Reading HPMOR, I am convinced that I should be able to replicate results. So, we’re in Beck again!

Notes to future self:
Virus, plus, classes, career fair, research, meal skip – for you? I hope not!
ALSO, make sure to save the noise source files BEFORE doing the recordings. Planning saves time.
ALSO++, be careful – you have a habit of looking and not finding mice that ARE RIGHT THERE.
And try not to starve.

Screenshots that might help pin-point things that don’t make any sense to me right now:

Uncheck tracks to avoid looping –> Convenience!

Changing 48000 to anything else cause weird breaks in the sound. Changing the 44100 apparently did nothing.

Max volume in iTunes that didn’t visibly go into the red zone. Changing the speaker volume directly (from “the box”) didn’t affect these bars though. So, that could still cause clipping. And wavwrite reported clipping. Edirol was PROBABLY NOT clipping (according to the DISP feauture)
