Anyone here compose movie soundtracks? What sample/bitrate?

Postby Drumstruck » Wed Dec 27, 2017 9:49 pm

Wondering what sample rate / bitrate you're using?

fwiw I'm using Finale 25 but when I export it only does 16 bit so it's losing the 24 bit sample quality..... I could rewire it into Reaper and mix it there.....

Just wondering if there's a smarter process?

48k/24 bit

But I wouldn't stress, that's the post-guy's job.

24 bit is obviously best but the chances of anyone ever being able to hear the difference... go with the best/most creative work flow that works for you.

It's likely changed since, but when I did the music mixing at AFTRS several years ago, it was important to deliver the correct format, which at the time was "industry standard" 16 bit / 48KHz.
