I learned some new things about recording

Postby watertore » Tue Nov 08, 2005 4:10 am

I have been recording at 16 bit rate since I started recording myself a couple of years. I learned the other day about 24 bit, and it sounds a lot better to my ears. Can you hear a difference from my other songs on the site? I recorded these two at 24 bit:

Slumin

These blues got me way lowdown

I am using the Electro Harmonix preamps (3 of them) for the vocal/harp, guitar amp, and snare drum. For the other 3 mics, I used ART TPSII preamps (bass drum, high hat, room mic). I am going to buy some more of these EH, and sell off the ART's.

Well Walter, to my not entirely knowledgeable ears, the news ones do maybe sound a bit clearer/cleaner. But they all sound good to me.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Nov-11-05 AT 08:10 PM (EST)]thanks for listening! The soundclick MP3's don't do the songs justice. They tend to thin the sound out, vs. the wave files that are used for a cd. The depth, or "air" as they call it, is much more noticable in the wave files. I wish I could post them, but they are way too big. Walter
