Converting from 44.1 to 48khz:What's the best way?

Member for

Hello there guys...(and girls)

I have to convert tracks from 44.1khz to 48khz:
What's the best way to do it?

Would it be wise to just re-record the whole song with 48khz?

Or should I use a converter, the Pro Tools-Converter for example?

Any advice would be very nice...

Hi Putte! Try Barabatch, it does a better job, than the prot@@ls converter...
Ich mach mal auf Deutsch weiter.
Du solltes die Files auf keinen Fall re-recorden, da Du exakten sync brauchst. Beim Aufnehmen können leichte Timingverschiebungen auftreten. Du solltest in Deinem Fall Deine Mixdowns auf vollen Sekunden anfangen lassen und dann konvertieren.
Jetzt hast Du's ja bald geschafft ;)

tschüß, Niko

Thanks for the tips everybody... :)

The reason for converting is that the songs are for a film, and this film will go cinema.
And those film-guys then need the tracks in 48khz....

Hey Nico - bist ein guter Beistand.... ;)

From my experience the McGill audio tools "resample audio" commandline utility seems to be the best way to do samplerate conversion. It is the defacto standard in the land of audio software development. It supports 24/96kHz.

On an adside, upsampling is never as difficult to do transparently as downsampling because you are not throwing any audio away, so going to 48kHz from 44.1 will be no problem for most software solutions.
