Hi, Mike,

In looking at the free R8brain SRC, the filter is down 6 dB at 20 kHz. 
The pro versions do better. But it does look great, overall. The overall 
phase response and the impulse is 180 degrees out of polarity, so one 
needs to do a polarity reversal after running it through the free one.

Just sayin' if you're using this in an archive/professional situation 
things to be aware of. It certainly looks better than some of the 
commercial products tested.

Cheers,

Richard
