I thought they fixed that with win7?

So are you guys going to be recording a lot of your own material for the sake of the research? It seems like the best way to be sure of what you're working with. ...

I heard they've already put the mike in Ian's shower.

A program in Windows 7 can request not to be messed with "exclusive mode", but the majority don't bother.
ASIO drivers completely side step the issue, by not using the Windows mixer at all. But ASIO is usually limited to professional interfaces, and audio production software.

Apple software uses CoreAudio -- which is billed as professional grade. Here are a few quotes from the doc I linked below:

Most Core Audio constructs manipulate audio data in linear pulse-code-modulated (linear PCM) format.... Core Audio generally expects audio data to be in native-endian 32-bit floating-point linear PCM format.

Supported file and data formats

Here are the developer docs.

So, Neil Young is still at it, plugging his high-res audio player at SXSW this week. I found this old thread and bumped it.

The return of Pono!

I hear that ClubNeon was an eager contributor to the Kickstarter campaign for this. Good on ya, Chris!!!

Sometimes I wish there was a Kickstopper. A way to pay to keep things from happening.

I wonder if Neil Young is as wrong & biased with his views on this product as he is with the oil industry in Alberta. Like the drivel from Gore & Suzuki, I don't believe a thing that he says.

As for a pilgrimage to Axiom, I did it a couple of summers ago & it was a highlight for me in my generally boring, retirement life. If there is a gathering in Dwight in the future, I will certainly attempt to attend & meet some of the reprobates who hang out here, ha!

Yeah, J.P.; advice from a possibly hearing-damaged guy who's one of those who "likes it loud". Grossly exaggerated MP3 condemnation.
