Just upgraded my studio with a brand new Focurite liquid Saffire 56 and an Octopre MkII.
With every changes to my gear, I try to better myself. I band project is comming soon, they're gonna track in my studio and mix and master at another place. So, I need to export wave files at there best.
With my last setup (with m-audio delta cards) I used 24bit 44.1khz because it was hard to get a low latency tracking otherwise.
Option 1: Portable Recorder (Zoom H2n)
I need 16 IO and an interface. The Prism ADA-8RX or less expensive RME are in the running for me.
I mention mastering because I know you guys are the end result and could save me grief. You may have some for-warned advise that I should hear before I make the plunge.
Does anyone know why this happens: e.g. I record a note (D) on my flute at 24bit - 48KHz, it plays back as the same note in Cubase 4 LE then when I mix the track down to 16bit - 44KHz and play the new .wav file in windows media player or VLC the sound is much sharper in pitch nearly a F.
I dont know why this is happening..... I use a sm58 + Lexicon Alpha studio to record audio (as recommended here 'and I love it' ).
I have a knowledge problem.
I have been recording in a Boss BR900CD and it records in 24 bit. I've done 2 tracks for a friend of mine and she is going to put them on her forthcoming debut album. Obviously I'm relatively new to recording.
She recorded most of the album at a commercial studio here in Ireland. The studio wants to mix the tracks and needs them as 24bit. I'm not sure how to give them a cd of 24bit tracks.
all stuff producers will tell you that recording at 4872394879bit sampling rate is what you truly need to sleep well and have great success with girls...but...who really need high bitrate sampling?
Which is the REAL difference between recording at 16 or 24?
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 playing back the file and boosting around the 16khz area.
I have bought an M-Audio Delta44 to use with cubase to increase recording clarity/headroom etc. I assumed the best setting then was to record at 96k/24 bit as per the spec of the card.
To maximise quality in clean tracks and resolution of reverb plugins (which still sound muddy) should I be using 32bit float?
