I don't think it is a good idea to just "save as" for downsampling your 24 bit files. I am guessing that just saving it with different sampling rate and bit depth does not resample or dither, it just cuts off the extra information.

In wavelab you can add in the resampler and dither to the processing chain then "render" the file to obtain a correctly resampled and dithered file.

If you using Wavlab, just do a "save as" on your 24/96 file and there is a option to save it as 16/44.1.

Ok heres what I ended up doing to get my 24/96 YMSB show down to 16/44.1.

1- Resampled to 44.1 using wavelabs resample function.

2- Dithered using the UVH22 algorithm in wavelabs.

3- I clicked Render in the masters section of wavelabs to create a new file that has the above changes.

4- Then I joined the "split" files using the add wave to end function...this was seamless.

5- I put in the track marks.

6- Used the create new cd menu to export each track as a separate file.

7- Used Nero to add faders and burn cds.  


Something I discovered that I will throw out to hopefully save someone else time is TRACK AFTER YOU RESAMPLE/DITHER.  After resampling the track marks were not in the right place in wavelabs, so do everything else first.

Also I can clearly hear the difference between 16 and 24 bit (blind test) on my SHITTY stereo.   Was it worth the effort/frustration of switching from DAT to Laptop?  HELL YA! ;D

One of these days I'll get around to going 24-bit, but I just won't do it on a laptop.  C'monnnnnnn hard-drive recorders!  I figure I'm about a year away from making the jump.  Great post, Becky!

No way!  That is a positive attitude.  If I was hell bent on everything being absolutly perfect I would be a depressed, pissed off, and generally dissatisfied person.  

FWIW-I was attempting to say that no system is perfect.  There is always a chance for something to go wrong and ruin the recording.  DATs misload, can have dirty heads, or eat your tape.  My laptop can decide it dosen't want to record for a zillion different reasons....so ya  there are plenty of imperfections.
