Hi All,

I have been prepping a project for duplication, and the other night I 
started wondering (probably because it was REALLY late) whether there's 
any discernable difference in sound quality between AIFF and Sound 
Designer II files. I realize that they end up as AIFF on the CD, but 
Digital Performer allows me to export them in either format, and I 
believe Toast will load and burn either type of file. Kind of makes me 
wonder if there's a compelling reason to use SDII. I did try it once, 
and got some weird clicks on the CD when using SDII files - almost 
sounded like some digital clock issue.

Any help would be appreciated.
