Hello. I’m setting up my recording rig for the first time in 4 years. I’ve forgotten a lot about settings. Here are the facts… My soundcard is an M-Audio Delta 1010 which is 24 bit, I’m using it’s native ASIO drivers, I’m using Windows 7 64 bit, and Wavelab Elements 8. I will need to do post recording processing such as normalization, compression, and conversion to MP3 and FLAC formats.
Can I use 32 bit float for recording even though my soundcard maxes out at 24 bit? Should I use 32 bit?
