I'm pretty new to this hi-res digital audio thing so please bear with me: A guy wants to send me a song to have me master it for him. He says that he will send it to me on a CD-R as a 32-bit float .wav file. I will be using Sonic Foundry Vegas 3.0 to master - it supports 24/96 as well as does my soundcard (DAL CardDeluxe). OK. I know that within the PC, certain DXplug-insprocess the material in that format (or higher) before converting back to 24-bit, 16-bit or whatever it is stored at on the HD. (Am I correct so far?) As far as I know, the highest bit depth for storing audio on a PC is 24-bit (?). Do either of us know what we're talking about? Sorry if this sounds confusing, but I'm still learning about all the little 1's & 0's (I cut my teeth on 2" tape). Thanks for any input.
