Adobe Audition 3.0 - 16 vs 32-bit - Which to Use? 2017-04-21 12:19:11 Hi AllA novice here - I’m using Adobe Audition 3.0 to produce various things for a radio station that I volunteer at.My source files are WAV (44100Hz, 16-bit). The finished mixes also need to be the same due to the playout system that the station uses.There’s an option in the settings to “auto-convert all data to 32-bit upon opening”. Is there any real benefit in enabling this? Will doing this improve how Audition applies effects (like reverb, compression etc.) or will it make no difference? My understanding is that AA's audio engine works in 32-bit float anyway (regardless of what file you feed it) so there's no point.Also, what I tend to do with effects is apply them in the edit view first as I find it easier than using the effect rack in the multitrack area. Is there any benefit to applying them in the multitrack view instead...in terms of quality? The reason I ask is I believe multitrack does 32-bit mixing (at least it says that at the bottom of the screen).Last question – I read this online;QuoteDither Transform Results (increases dynamic range) - disable itThis feature is described like a good thing...really it means that anytime you make any editing there is a dithering applied, for example you edit/process only a small segment and you have that segment with dither too... or you edit/process something twice or more times and you have dither applied twice or more times too. Very nasty idea!Any truth in that?Thanks for any advice!
