What sample rate are you using?
« on: June 02, 2018, 09:55:02 PM »
I've been recording at 24/96 since I had a deck that could. Now I use Audacity in my post workflow, and it converts to 32/96, leading to large files. Hard drives are cheap, and I use an SSD as a work drive, so it's not a big problem, but I'm wondering what I'd lose going to 24/48 for recording.

Thoughts?

What rate do you use?

Thanks,
Chris

24/48.

For concerts I can't tell the difference above that.

24/48 live. Storage used to be the reason, now its doing 4 or 6 tracks at a time with the space/storage that entails.
music IS love

When you get confused, listen to the music play!

24/48. For the stuff I record, there's no reason for anything higher than that.

What is the sense of older shows recorded in 16bit re master to 96. The music has been recorded your not adding music..noise is being added,no?

audacity defaults to 32bit floating but you can change that in the interface after the import. Also you have your raw master, then your edited exported audacity at ? 24/96 or 16/44.1 why do you need to keep the 32 ?


my workflow is 24/48 original > Audacity edit in 32 floating > export to 24/48 and export to 16/44.1 > CD WAV Editor for tracking > TLH FLAC. I flac the untouched master files, the 24/48 tracked version for sharing and the 16/44.1 for sharing as well. Master files get archived, the tracked versions as well.  No need to keep the project files really just my .02

I personally record at 24/96, thinking about moving up to 192. I don’t inherently hear a difference on the raw tapes, but many digital algorithms for things like EQs and saturation modeling plugins have significantly reduced filter error the higher the same rate; and that I do hear. Space is dirt cheap, I stash my shows on an external and have a 64-gig internal card in my mixpre-6.

What is the sense of older shows recorded in 16bit re master to 96. The music has been recorded your not adding music..noise is being added,no?

Assuming you mean 16 to 24 bit and/or 44.1k/48k/88.2k to 96k, correct. Depending on how the conversion is done there are ways to try and reduce noise but inherently it will add some level of noise. There are reasons why some may upsample, and some of them are valid (e.g. hardware is optimized for a certain bit depth/sample rate, or certain approximations in filter design improve drastically in phase response), but those are extreme special use cases, and far and few between.

24/48, and would do 44.1 except to head off complaints from video folks I send files to on occasion. I use Acustica plugins and processing is slow enough as it is at 48k; 96k rendering time is prohibitive.

I need 24 bit to do post process amplification without adding hiss. But 44.1 works fine for sound quality, IMO and makes the files smaller and easier to work with.

yep, but 24/48 if the video folks want some.

I guess I'll be the odd man out and say I only do 16/44 for 95% of what I record these days.
