I was about to upload my music to TuneCore who would then distribute it to iTunes, Spotify, etc. and noticed that they said to make sure my music was in 16 bit format. It was my understanding that 16 bit is just for burning CDs. You have to dither/add the noise to bring 24 bit recordings down to...
My first ever post, sorry if not the correct place or if already been addressed elsewhere;
Can I start giveing cleients 24bit Red Book standard CD's instead of 16bit? I've been giving both 16 and 24bit. They probably think I don't know what I'm doing but the tech side of it changes so...
I am currently looking to upgrade the way I mix music. Currently, I have a fast track ultra and I'm just using a pair of 50$ monitor headphones. I have done test recordings of 16 bit, 44.1 Khz Vs. 24 bit 96 khz recordings, and I cannot hear a shred of difference. (I know my fast track ultra is...
Currently running Sonar 6, Dell Pentium IV w/ motu 828 mkII firewire... and whatever stock sound card my computer has.
Whenever i try to set sonar to run 24 bit 48 khz it says my sound card is incompatible or something and i'm forced to work in 16 bit 44.1... anyone know why i cant go to 24...
I assume there have been ample discussions of this in the past, but I cannot find any applicable threads to read using the search feature of this forum. Can anyone point me to these discussions?
If for whatever reason the discussion gets restarted here, these are my thoughts/assumptions...
I've been lurking around here a lot, but now have a question of my own. With a recent project, I decided to mixdown to 24bit/44khz, instead of 16bit/44Khz which is what I have done in the past. After mastering the audio, I was puzzled by this sharp harsh sounding noise i'd get when...
i have some older sessions in 16-bit 44.1 kHz.
i am going to re-track the vocals for the
sessions using newer equipment which
is capable of 24-bit up to 96 kHz.
is there any benefit to converting the 16-bit
audio into 24-bit and work in a new
24-bit session (44.1) for...
I've always been somewhat skeptical on this topic, and I hope someone can inform me of any mistakes I may be making.
I'm currently engineering the sound effects for a small game project. They've been sent to me as 16 bit files, and I'm required to make gain changes to them (as the game...
when is it best to record in which bit depth? i understand that the bit depth is is relative to loudness in dB's (each bit = 3 dB i think?), but still don't quite grasp when to record in which. i'd assum 24 bit, then dither down to 16 bit to go to cd in the mastering process, but i am not sure...
If I'm exporting files from Cubase at 24 bit and they were recorded at 16 bit, am i doing damage to the file?
The reason being I have some files at 24 bit and some files at 16 bit and would prefer to master at 24 bit obviously.
As you can see I'm somewhat of a beginner so take it easy...
How is it possible?
I have an ensoniq sampler from 1993 (asr10) which sounds MUCH better than my RME multiface.
And it is not because coloration or distortion, it simply sounds more "in front", a little bit smoother and warmer and fatter.
I made some tests recording both simple sinus...
I have a question about converting from 24/96 down to 16/44.1:
I am currently working with a project that was recorded and mixed at 24bit/96khz. It sounded very good at that resolution, but then I used the ProTools "bounce to disk" function to save a 16bit/44.1khz copy of the master stereo...
dither on pro tools
So my question is this
i use either a roland 2480 or cubase as my main recording enviroment
SX 2 i should specify.
So should i set my projects up as 44.1/24bit? and then mix down or "dither" (still not sure how or when this works) to 16 bit so i can play on a CD?
the real question is...
I have some tracks that are originally 16 bit, wondering what the benefits or consequences would be to convert to 24 bit to mix and then reconvert & dither to 16 bit for CD burning? Thanks for all opinions!
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
b.) recording 30 tracks with...
I have a question consirning audioconverting.
Does anybody know if it is possible to convert a .WAV 44.1kHz. 16Bits Mono file into a A-law 8 kHz. 16Bits Mono file?
Normally I convert the WAV's into A-Law 8 Bits, but now I need to convert them to 16 bits files which seems not possible with the...
