wav 64bit problem? - Page 2

post #16 of 30

When someone says that 64 bit is used in the studio, it's meant in the way of 64 bit mixing. Pro tools is capable of 64 bit mixing. The actual recordings of the instruments are still 24 or 16 bit.

I think you're still referring to results got from some DR measurement software which does not measure DR value the way you might think - http://www.dynamicrange.de/en/our-aim

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.

 

If you want to try different resolutions try http://www.2l.no/hires/

 

 

Success

It's a file issue (if not purposely done that way).

 

After SRC to 16-bit/44.1kHz DR Meter 1.4 showed:

 

-----------------------------------------------
 Statistics for:    1_r8b_2.wav
 Number of Samples: 11573016
-----------------------------------------------

                             left              right

 Peak value:     -1.70 dB   ---    -2.27 dB
 Avg RMS:       -11.80 dB   ---   -12.32 dB
 DR channel:      8.05 dB   ---     8.27 dB
-----------------------------------------------

 Official DR value:  DR8
===============================================

 

If you're unsure of your setup for Hi-Res audio then play with those Hi-Res test bench files found from http://www.2l.no/hires/ as suggested by Roseval.

 

Just a note: If you don't use ASIO or WASAPI Exclusive Mode (or WDM/KS (Windows XP)) diriver for playback, remember to check that the system audio format (playback device->properties->advanced -tab) matches with the 'source file'/'playback software' requirements.

What I ment is that it's not your audio setup issue. The file itself looks OK (no errors).

 

Is this a native (24/192) studio recording, studio master digitalization or just CD to DVD-A conversion?

I don't think you can make it better.

 

Do you know if the CD version of this song sounds equal with this Hi-Res version?  If the issue is not present in CD version then try by downloading the Hi-Res format song again. If the issue is still present in the new download, just report this issue to the file distributor, etc...
