Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding bit depth, part of Audition CS6 Essential Training.
Okay. So, when you're creating a new recording in Audition--again I'll choose File > New > Audio file.…In addition to the sample rate--which we previously covered--you also need to…select the bit depth of your recording.…Notice we can choose from 8, 16, 24, or 32 float.…The bit depth determines the dynamic range of your audio file.…The more bits, the wider the range of volume you can have within each sample…of your recording.…Think back to the previous movie on sample rate.…We likened the sample rate to a camera that takes thousands of images of…a sound per second.…For example, a sample rate of 44.1 Kilohertz takes 44,100 samples per second.…
The amount of information stored in each one of those samples is determined…by the bit depth.…So, for example, a low bit depth like 8-bit resolution only allows for a dynamic…range of 48 dB within a sample.…That's not enough to accurately capture the dynamic range of most sounds.…A 16-bit resolution, which is how most music CDs are encoded, allows for 96 dBs…
