    Hi folks,

    I have an orig Motu 2408 with 20 bit A/D.
    I would like to record into Cubase with 24bit
    recording switched on.

    Is it ok to use 20 bit A/D with 24 bit recording?
    For ex, will I get any unwanted artifacts?

    Any comments greatly appreciated - thanks

    You should be fine AFAIK. You will just be writing the 20 bit resolution into a 24 bit file. No biggie...
