I tried recording a cassette tape to Cabase, using the CI2+. I did a quick test recording and ran a “statistics” check, both channels were 24 bit. So I recorded the whole tape, but then when finished one channel was 24b, and the other 32b.
So I open the hood and look inside, wiggle some stuff, unplug and plugin some stuff, checked the oil, did another test recording. This time both channels are 32b. Hmmmm ok. Checked everything again, can’t find anything wrong, so I record the whole tape again. Same thing, left channel is 24b right channel is 32b.
How can that even happen?
I ended up using Wavelab to record, and both channels came out 24 bit, so it must be a Cubase problem? There isn’t even a setting for changing the bit rate separately for L and R of a stereo file is there?
