Hello everybody. I think, 24 bit is in anyway better than 16, and i think you would hear a difference betwen a.) recording 30 tracks with 16 bit, mixing it in 16 bit mode with protools, bounce the whole mix again 16bit and than master the 16bit bounce and b.) recording 30 tracks with 24 bit and mixing it with 24 bit per channel in protools, bouncing it in 24bit, and master the 24bit bounce, and than bounce with dither to 16bit audio-cd. I think b.) in any case is better and worth it. I always work in 24 bit, after mastering i do the convertion with dithering for cd-audio. I think everybody will hear the difference betwen the resultat on the audio-cd of a.) and b.). So does anyone agree with me?
