LOLs.. 3 of them are ok.. the other 2 sound distorted at some high note etc..
1, i do not want to know this 64bit quality good or not
2. why it is distorted
3. laptop prob or wav prob
4. able to fix?
THANKS by lee.
1 This is the format used in studio's during production. No current DAC is able to resolve this. The best are able to resolve 22/23 bits.
16 bits is a dynamic range of 96 dB, 24 bits is a dynamic range of 144
2 It might be distorted because they produced it to loud (Digital Clipping)
Maybe the software is struggling with the 64 float format.
3 See 2, can be both
4 Try down sampling to 24 bits, check if this helps maybe the sheer bulk of the bit stream occasionally chokes the system
Load track in an audio editor like Audacity and check the places where you hear distortion. Maybe they exceed 0 dbfs.
