Hello fellow producers!
What I’m mostly using Cubase for at this time, is to do cover song recordings where I record vocals to a pre-recorded instrumental track.
These tracks are 16-bit files but I like to setup my projects as 32-bits because I can afford to. When importing these 16-bit tracks into my 32-bit sessions, should I have Cubase convert them to 32 bits, or keep them as they are? (if it makes any difference to the answer, most of these instrumentals are 320kbps MP3 files).
Also, some of the vocals were recorded a few years ago when I could have probably adjusted my input gains better before they reached the DAW - some may be a bit soft compared to recent sessions. How would you advise I turn them up without inducing more noise, so that they will sound more equal to he recent stuff?
