Is it possible to make 24bit recordings (with sfrecord~, for example)?

June 27, 2007 | 8:17 pm

hello,

this might be a really elementary question, but i can’t find it in
the documentation.
is it possible to make 24bit recordings (with sfrecord~, for example)?
mine always come out as 16 bit even though under audio midi set-up
(i’m on a mac), it is configured for 24 bit.
is there a way to configure settings so they are 24 bit recordings by
default?
is this something that needs to be done within max or elsewhere?

thank you!

thanks guys.
i didn’t realize this pertained to bit depth.
always figured it would be something to configure under DSP status menu

thanks again!

Other than using the "samptype" message, is there a way to set the sfrecord~ to default to 24-bit? I can’t find a preference for this.
