Gain staging when bouncing to audio

So when gain staging vocals I try and achieve a -18 db to -12 db range and never move off the ch fader keeping it at zero as to allow the cleanest sound possible. But as far as my drums and bass and other instruments are concerned, should all the tracks be at around -10 db as in turning the master v...

Re: Sample rate question

nah i won't be working or planning on using cd as my final format but i do remember those days where everybody made sure to mention how you had to stick to that specific sample rate if you wanted to be able to put it on cd and it kind of stuck with me not to move off of it. I just recorded some voca...

Re: Sample rate question

thanks StormKraft you've always been a big help on here. I guess i remember the days where you couldn't put anything on to cd that was over 44k or something like that. So as long as i intend for my end sample rate to be at 96k, and bit depth 24 and my buffer at 512 this should mesh ok? and the final...

Sample rate question

Recently i was watching a tutorial and someone said you should always have bit depth either 24 or 32, and he had his sett to no dither, so then i started thinking ...

Re: freezing midi tracks then copy to audio question

does having the left and right even matter?if centered does it make a difference? For the sound, this makes no difference whatsoever, unless the two channels make the producer treat the tracks as a stereo track and add stereo effects to it. That could muddy up the bass region.
