I couldn’t find anything about this by searching, here, or google. It’s probably a silly newbie question. But, maybe this will help someone else. My apologies if I got the category wrong.
First, I’m just goofing around, downloading karaoke tracks and recording over them. I’m using Ardour 6, for now, while I figure out how I like to do this.
It seems like it’s generally recommended to record in 48KHz. Why? I have no idea. Better quality, sure. But, it sounds like it makes things easier when finally getting to the mastering stage, which I haven’t yet.
Anyhoo, the mp3 files I’ve been getting are all in 44100 Hz. I use SoundConverter to turn them into 48KHz wav files.
My question is, is this the correct way to be doing all this? Maybe I ought to just record in 44100Hz?
Thanks for your time.
