Bit meter

Why is the bit meter showing a full 24 range while the file is effectively 16 ? What am I not getting ? (The file is 100% 16bits encoded)

Somehow you must have some effects or at least gain.

And 24 bit dither in path (?)

And 24 bit dither in path

Yes, or a plugin that quantizes to 24 bit for whatever reason.

Thanks that sorted it, I did not have any gain change nor plugin but I did not notice the dither in the master bus as I’m not 100% familiar with the new layout of W9 (coming from W7 myself).

Thanks for the tips!
