    Hi again,

    I am about to embark on a recording project using the following equipment

    Fostex 16 bit 44.1khz hard disk recorder

    Feeding via adat to

    Yamaha 01v96 mixing desk

    Mixing to

    Philips hardware cd recorder

    Both the cd recorder and the hard disk recorder run at 16 bit 44.1khz but the desk has the ability to run much higher. For live work I run the desk at 24 bit 48 khz for example.

    What settings should I have the desk on for best recording results -keep it at 16 bit 44.1 khz or run it higher and dither back down - erm I guess dither doesnt really apply to khz is there a work around. Note wordclock matching is an issue. Please advise what best to do here?

    just leave it all at 16/44. Theres nothing to gained by altering it.
