C.D.'s are 44.1khz @16bit. Period!
I track, process and mix at 48khz sample rate @24bit, but no matter what you use----44.1khz/48khz/88.1khz/96khz/192khz...If you going to put it on a C.D.(that'll play in all C.D. players) it all gets dithered down to 16bit@ 44.1khz. Hope that clears it up some! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Right on, I gotcha. I tried importing my bounced wav file into pro tools under a brand new session to master it, and it said unable to import file due to something with quicktime,anyone know anything about that?

Default mastering question

When mastering a song through pt do I need to bounce to disk and then impoort the bounced file back into pro tools and then master,or do I master before I bounce to disk in the first place?

I record at 24 Bits and 48 Khz. I understand that at some point it will be downgraded to 16/44.1
I mainly use 48K cuz when Im doing really anal editing its more acurate and I can cut waveforms more precisely.
Beyond that what benefit does 24 Bits hold over 16 Bits,
[img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] besides wasting Hard drive space. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
What benefit does 48K have over 44.1K, besides being more accurate when its initially recorded.

I heard about DVD Audio thats 24 Bits and 96K and has 6 channels (surroundsound) instead of 2 (left+right). I Hope this format takes over soon cuz CD's Suck. CD Format is like 22 years old.

We deserve better. God Damn It!!!
