Ive just tried to render a project at 32bit, sample rate 192.It will render but when i try to burn to a c.d windows says that it doesnt recognize the codec used.Any one know where i can get the proper codec, and just out of curiosity what programs are other people on this forum using to burn their music to c.d

Do you want the CD to be playable in any CD player, or do you want the high quality file for backup or to give it to someone?

For CD playback, you need to render it as either wav or aiff, 16 bits/44.1 kHz. That's the standard for CD playback. If your project was recorded at 24 bits, you'll need to add a dither to your master chain at the very end. The mda vsts include a dither:

If I'm not mistaken, you don't need to do so if you recorded it all at 32 bits.


If you need to burn it for backup or something similar, You should compress it to zip format it and burn it using Nero or a similar app.
