Glossary definition of 'Split96'

Split96 is a mode of digital interfacing (usually of AES3) whereby a two channel interface carries a single audio channel sampled at twice the frame rate of the interface. Each frame contains the data for two successive samples of the same channel, rather than a sample from the left channel and a sample from the right channel. Also known as 'two-wire' interfacing as two wires become necessary to transmit a stereo signal in this format.
