Re: Recording vocals using 24-bit card, how to export from Live?

if you are recording with a single microphone then the raw recording (assuming you haven't applied any stereo effects to it) is a mono source. true stereo panning doesn't make any sense with a mono source, it only makes sense if you have some stereo information to play with. if you have a stereo so...

Re: Recording vocals using 24-bit card, how to export from Live?

I don't understand why you are panning a mono file before export in the first place, but it's also unclear what you mean with "the original" as what you compare with. You mean you compared to the original panned exactly the same way? Or how? I was recording a bunch of vocals and panned some tracks ...

Re: Recording vocals using 24-bit card, how to export from Live?

When I record with my mic I do get a mono file. When I then pan it hard left or right, export and import it back it, the new file has a lower gain than the original. I do not understand why exporting a panned mono file should affect its volume. Thanks for your time.

Re: Recording vocals using 24-bit card, how to export from Live?

I might be an idiot but please hear me out. I record a vocal track, and then pan it completely to the left in Ableton, i.e. at 50L. The peak of a section of this track is -19.77 and the RMS is -26.77. If I now export this as either 32bit or 24bit at 44100Hz and import it back in I get PEAK=-22.78 an...

Re: Recording vocals using 24-bit card, how to export from Live?

Thank you for replying.
Can't remember whether I had Warp turned on, will check after work and post my results.
I read somewhere that Ableton internally processes all audio as 32-bit and that I should use
dithering even if I record at 24-bit. Does this make any sense?

Thanks.

Recording vocals using 24-bit card, how to export from Live?

Hi, I'm recording vocals using an Apollo Twin card which is a 24-bit/192kHz card. Say I do some editing to the vocals in Live and want to export a single track to wav. If I pick 32-bit/44.1kHz in the export options and import the wav back into Live it sounds thinner and has a lower gain than the ori...
