    Garritan-Kontakt prefered Bit Depth

    Anyone know what Kontakt Player 2 - JABB wants your soundcard (and host) to be on? 24-48 or 16-44.1 or doesnt matter?

    I am using 16-44.1.


    thanks,

    josh

    Hi Josh,
    The samples in JABB are recorded at 44.1, 16-bit.
    KP2 should be impartial to your soundcard settings, however I would recommend using a project bit depth of 24-bit to give your mixes extra headroom. The sample rate is far less important. 48 or 44.1 is fine.

    Reegs,

    thanks much - some hard to find details here - only asked because i had to call Sony support (Acid Pro 6 acts up with JABB) and they blamed it on this, which is typical .


    I am using 16/44 because when i was using 24bit, i was getting INTERMITTENT, STRANGE out of phase artifacts - which were impossible to trace (on Renders) - could be Soundcard, or could be DX-VST FX mismatching, or dither inside effects - anyway, when using 16bit, it seems to not do it....nightmare !!!

    I LOVE 24bit, but i can NOT stand tinny, out of phase anomalies !!




    cheers,
    Josh
