Input/Output Formats

Which format to use with 24 bit N-track

I am currently using the latest version of N-track (24 bit version). I am using Windows XP and an RME Hammerfall 9632 soundcard (with card’s ASIO driver selected). After clicking on the settings button on the N-track output VU meter window, I get another window which gives me 3 choices of input/output formats ( all 24 bit).

1. 24 bit packed format

2. 24 bit format in which the 24 bit of data are memorized as the rightmost bits of a 32 bit block.

3. 24 bit format in which the 24 bit of data are memorized as the leftmost bits of a 32 bit block.

Which format should I use ?

Thanks

Someone Please?!?!?

Try one and see what works. You won’t see a difference in SQ, iirc.

The person to ask would be Elwood Blues over at the Audiominds forum, he uses an RME cards with a Berry digital desk last I recall.

Use whatever works. You won’t HEAR a difference IF they all work. Just pick one. :)
