Hello,

I'm currently digitizing and archiving my old cassettes. I have already recorded everything in 16-bit 44.1 kHz.

I would like now to re-record everything in 24-bit 44.1 kHz and 24-bit 48 kHz

I was wondering if it made sense to play on tape and open two programs (in my case it would be Sound Forge Pro and Audacity), one recording 24-bit 44.1 kHz, the second one recording 24-bit 48 kHz.
(My sound card is an Asus Xonar Essence STX.)

It looks like it works, but can it have an impact on the recording quality ?

Thank you for informations.

Then I still have the impression that

Tape * is lossly (at lot) and resampling is lossy (a little bit), which gives LOSSY x lossy.
While not having to resample or resampling by multiplying by 2 gives LOSSY x lossless. Which is a little bit better.

* Though tape is the only source I have for theses recordings so from a relative point of view it's lossless since it's my only source.


Maybe I could then drop the idea of 16/48 and keep only the 24/48

Ain't the same lossy.

Tape lossy is at least 10 times more lossy than good resampling lossy.

In engineering, we consider any problem that is 10 times less than some other problem to be easy to ignore.
