Lightbulb 32 bit, 192khz export wav files

the benefit of 32 bit in the realm of audio clipping and mastering is important enough to consider

cyclic - The last time you posted, I asked that whatever it was that you were consuming at that moment for you to please send me some. Your post was an interesting concept. This time, whatever it is that you're consuming at the moment, please don't send me any.

*New levels of disappointment reached.*

Well done.


(Read up on articles about audio bit depth. Please, I BEG of you.)

Cool 32 bit (dissapointment)

i was under the impression that 32 bit was useful in the mastering process

if adobe Audition can load and save 32 bit floating point files at 192 khz then it seems like rendering off the soft synths and processor chains at that depth may offer a degree of flexibility in the mastering process.

You probably have a valid point because Sonar allows you to export 64 bit double precision WAVs.

That said though, I doubt you will hear a difference between 24 bit or 32 bit.

Matter of fact true pure unalterred 24 bit audio isn't even achieveable because there are no analog components in 2012 that can get a noise levels low enough to acheive 144 db of dynamic range (If there are nobody built a DAC yet for this purpose).

Also consider even if you could have 144 db of dynamic range, you probably wouldn't like it because we start getting into the threshold of pain.


32 bit and 64 bit are more for summing and plug-in processing to reduce truncation errors and keeping ample headroom in large mixes.


I don't think any mastering engineer will get mad at you for sending them a 24 bit WAV file. They might get mad for you sending a 32 or 64 bit file because they even might not have the system to read it.
