When I render AAC files from a 96k montage, the AAC files have a sample rate of 96k
When I convert 96k WAV files to AAC using Sonnox Pro-Codec Manager, the files are a sample rate of 44.1k, I see no option for sample rate.
Is there a way for Wavelab to render 44.1k AAC files from a 96 montage without using the Crystal Resampler? I wasn’t aware that AAC files could have a sample rate of 96k so I was expecting my rendered AAC files from Wavelab to be 44.1k.
Does this mean that the Sonnox Pro-Codec Manager is doing some sample rate conversion when making the AAC files?
I’m trying to render files that will be exactly like the AAC files that would be distributed by the iTunes Store which appear to be 44.1k VBR AAC files. I was thinking that the sample rate conversion would be part of the AAC conversion process.
Which is more true. the Sonnox Pro-Codec Manager, or Wavelab when it comes to making AAC files?
