Explanations why you should record and use 32bit floating wave files, x64bit floating instead of 24bit in Cubase.
Also the benefits with x64bit floating double precision audio engine. I have two videos that explain the benefits.32bit floating wave files, x64bit floating
Its faster for the computer to use floating-point instead 24bit file.
Todays computer both reads and write and work faster with 32bit and 64bit floating and calculations then example locked 24bit files. To record and work "true 24bit environment and recordings", 24bit will not cut it even if you AD/DA are only in 24bit. You will loose quality especially if you continue work with the recorded files inside the computer DAW doing other processing. You need at least 32bit wave or 64bit floating points wave to perform "true 24bit" recordings and mixing.
I hope Steinberg add support of x64bit floating wave-files format too. Today you can use only 32bit floating waves in Cubase. 64bit double precision audio engine
I hope Steinberg upgrade their old 32bit floating audio-engine that currently Cubase are using to a newer one in x64bit floating double precision engine. Yes, Steinberg's 32bit audio engine sounds great today already but if they upgrade it using 64bit double precision engine, it would sound even better.
You need 64bit double precision audio engine to mix true 24bit recordings.
Other internal softwares like plugins VSTI are already using 64bit double precision engine "internal" in Cubase and both SONAR, Reaper, Studio One, Bitwig, Reason, and new PRO TOOLS 11 has x64bit double precision floating audio engine already today. Its about time Steinberg upgrade theirs too!
So make a concrete example and understanding. All x64bit plugins use x64bit double precision floating, VSTI, EQs, filters, reverbs etc. 64bit double precision can be explain as it sounds warmer, more open musical "internal" but you can't hear it because Cubase 32bit audio engine cut the audio quality in half. The Cubase 32bit audio engine are the weak link here. Also 32bit audio engine make "mixing" levels etc errors.
