Chapter 5. Editing Sound > Changing Bit Depths

Changing Bit Depths

As we saw in Chapter 2, you'll get better-sounding audio if you record and edit at a high bit depth like 32-bit. However, when it comes time to use your audio in a practical application like transferring it to CD, for instance, you'll find you may need to change the bit depth first (a CD can only accommodate 16-bit audio). Thankfully, Audition makes this process a snap.

To change a waveform's bit depth

1.
Choose Edit > Convert Sample Type, press the F11 key on your keyboard, or click the Convert Sample Type button on the toolbar.

2.
In the Convert Sample Type window, specify a bit depth in the Resolution list or enter a value of your own in the Bit field (Figure 5.38).

3.
If you're converting to a lower bit depth, configure the settings in the Dither field as desired. (See Chapter 2 for a discussion of the dithering choices available here.)

4.
Click OK.

Audition changes the bit depth based on your selection and returns you to Edit view.
