Does LAME make use of 32-bit input? 2012-01-19 04:08:53 I know MP3s don't capture the bit depth of their input, so I'm wondering if anything is gained by feeding an encoder high bit depth material. LAME accepts it, but I'm wondering if it just truncates this to 16-bit or if it uses this for anything. More accurate calculations? Higher dynamic range?I ask because I'm filtering some tracks through SoX and am curious if I'd get better results by piping its 32-bit output into LAME or if I should first dither to 16-bit.
