Can You Isolate Clips on MP3 Tracks?

Recommended Posts

Just now, Richard Strickland said:

The sender was concerned about audio degradation using .wav files as opposed to MP3

Really?

WAV files are "lossless."

The next question is, of course, 16 bit or 24 bit.

And after that it is 44.1kHz or 48kHz

If size is a problem then I would still recommend 24 bit rather than 16 bit. I'll let the experts explain why but, generally, it's all to do with "headroom."

I ain't a pro, so 44.1kHz sampling frequency suits me fine, but others may even go up to 92kHz and beyond.

MP3s are only 16 bit.  There is no reason to place them into a 24 or 32 bit wav file. If you expect to process them as wav files 24 or 32 bit is fine, though.

Hi John :)

I think the question here is, though, why even use MP3 files in the first place?

As Richard has confirmed in an earlier post, the guy who sent the files was worried about audio degradation, but hopefully we have helped to clear that misconception now.
