I've been listening to this youtube channel for a few weeks and it's been twice that this subject as been discussed.
In the video he clearly demonstrate a reason why you'd want record at higher sample rates or carefully use plugins that has oversampling..
I hope to get your opinion on this.. ;)
I have a group of Cubase projects in 44.100/24 bit.
They consist of mainly midi tracks of strings, drums, bass ( mostly VST Kontakt libraries) and a a few wav tracks of looped material.
This projects should function as basic tracks for a recording session when vocals, guitar and piano will be recorded.
Let's say I wish to record the vocals and live instruments at 96KHz or higher, what path do you suggest?
I'm thinking of exporting each midi tracks into 96KHz stereo wav files.
Feel free to post comments explaining your answer.
I was under an assumption that the sample sets in vsti were done at each sample rate supported by the plugin , as opposed to re calculated in realtime. Is this the common way in most vsti?
Please don't include mix projects which come to you where the SR is set by the client's project/files...
I'm talking about when you begin recording a new project.
along with your vote, comments -like bit resolution choices - are also more than welcome.
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 coming 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.
