I tested recording an audio track’s output in 24 Bit (internally in Nuendo not through converters) onto another audio track without any plugins, eqs, comps etc. on the source track. The resulting audio does not sound the same on the destination track being recorded to. It sounds like the audio engine is in 32 Bit and the audio is being dithered back to 24 Bit during the recording. If I do the test with the project in 32 Bit float the resulting audio track being recorded is identical to the source track. If I take the 32 Bit wave from the 32 Bit float test into Wavelab and dither it to 24 Bit,the result sounds the same as the 24 Bit recording I had done internally in Nuendo. I discovered this flaw when a customer of mine using Pro Tools asked me to do some vocal tuning on 24 Bit vocal tracks. He pointed out that the resulting vocal track had lost some of its character and asked me whether I was using Pro Tools. I told him I was using Nuendo. Initially I thought it was AutoTune, but after testing the recording with no plugins the altered character of the recorded audio sounded the same as with AutoTune on the source track. I eventually had to rent Pro Tools and do the tuning with that as it didn’t alter the character of the audio. It would be great if this could be addressed in up and coming versions.
