DAT Transfers R500->722
« on: September 25, 2022, 04:46:09 PM »
 I am running a coax out of the R500 into the 722 but unless I change bit depth to 16 on the 722 it shows up on the 722 at 24. How can this be if I am coming in digital via the co-ax. Am I missing something? Thanks!

its just 8 empty bits at the bottom (all numbers zero)

in a digital transfer recorders dont lock on bit depth, only sample rate.

easier to switch the recorder to a 16 bit file before recording, but if you have 16-bit data dumped into a 24 bit files, use bit depth reduction in a wave editor to knock it down to 16

do not use any sort of dither, this will create distortion. you want to simply truncate the data and chop off the empty 8 bits.

if your wave editor does not offer bit depth reduction with simple truncation, you can probably do it on the command line with something like ffmpeg

Ok, thanks I just switched to 16 on the 722. Rolling along error free on a KAO Gold brand DAT which is surprising to me. Thanks!
