    I recently started recording in 48k/24b for higher resolution. I am pleased with the sound, it's slightly clearer than 44.1k/16b.
    Now I have come to try and put some 48k 24b PCM wav files onto an audio cd.
    I use Audition and Sonar LE. And when I export a 44.1k 16b wav it sounds horrible, worse than when I recorded at those settings.
    How can I unsample from 48k/24b to 44.1k/16b so I can put it on a cd without it sounding craptastic?
    I currently use Nero to burn.

    I know I'm probably doing something stupid.
    How should it be done?

    Thanks in advance, cheers, best wishes and many happy returns.

    No worries!

    "Unsampling" isn't the correct terminology by the way: "downsampling" would be more usual, or "upsampling" to go the other way. Or just "samplerate conversion".

    Cheers. That makes sense.
    It can be hard to find info when you don't know the proper name for things.
