Bit Depth Between DAWs
I want to mix a project down using various audio/midi Stems recorded in both Reason 5 & Cubase Studio 4.
During the export/import process in Reason/Cubase I am presented with dialogues which display Bit Depth & Sample Rate options.
When I export tracks from Reason I get a Bit Depth option (16or24bit)
When I import into Cubase I get a Bit Depth conversion option "Convert to project Sample Size 24Bit to 32Bit"
I'm am a bit confused about all this..
Is there a general rule to follow to get best audio quality when working with various stems created across a number of different DAWs?
Do any of these conversions deteriorate audio quality as compressing & decompressing audio files does?
Also, how does all this fit into exporting audio for mastering?
Many thanks for your help,
