Hi Consultation and advice needed! Im finishing my mixes and preparing them for pro mastering. My first album is on it's way! One issue arrived: The master engineer to whom I will send it requires 24 bit depth files. Now situation in all my project is this: Some tracks were recorded in 24/48 and others in different time and place were recorded in 16/41 and in the end all recordings ended mixed in projects with default 16/41 Now I wonder if that might be a problem... Question nr1: What Cakewalk does when its feeded with audio files of a different bit depth and sample rate? (knowing that default for all projects is 16/41) Does it automatically applies dithering when going down from 24 to 16? What about sample rate? Question nr2: What now, when sending for mastering (24 bit depth required) - render them in 16(project bit depth)and convert to 24, or render straight to 24? I have 2 weeks to sort it out before deadline. Thanks in advance for your time and help
