according to its specification, the DVD-Audio format is able to capture not only 24bit but also 16bit audio on one physical disk. However, when you create a DVD-Audio compilation in WaveLab 7.0.1, every DVD-Audio montage is always upscaled into 24 bit depth, regardless of the original content.
Is it a bug or intended behaviour? If it is not a bug then I have a feature request: please, allow me to burn a DVD-Audio consisting of Groups with various bit depths. I mean I would like to be able to set the bit depth (16/24bit) for each Group in a DVD-Audio compilation.
Of course, I know that 24 bit is the standard for DVD-Audio, however, sometimes it is convenient to burn large amount of audio from CDs into one DVD-Audio disk, therefore, I lack the possibility to leave the content in 16 bit and spare the space on the disk.
What do you think about it?
Thanks for reply and best regards
