View Full Version : Sample Rate Question

2007-04-05, 12:32 AM
I'm editing some music in soundtrack Pro. I have five options of saving the Sample rates: 32000, 41100, 48000 (which is the default setting) , 88200 and 96000.

The end result is to have a CD-R of this music and if memory serves me right, I want to use a sample rate of 44100 - Right?

44.1kHz, 16bits, 2channels is the red book standard for CD encoding.

Thanks :thumbsup

But why would the program us 48 as the default setting? what's the benefit of using this setting over 44.1?

the standard for DVD is 48kHz, and 44.1kHz for CD...since Soundtrack Pro is designed for film/video audio editing, its default is set to 48kHz
