Just trying to get my head around something.
When I sample through Inputs 1/2 or Phono 1/2, my material is sampled at 26KHz/12 bit, yes?
What does the Audio Engine setting (HiFi/Classic) affect?
When I transfer samples to my SD card from my computer (let’s say 48KHz/16 Bit),
and then I assign them to a pad, are they still 48KHz/16 Bit, or can they be 26KHz/12 bit,
or is that where the audio engine setting comes into play?
Thank you in advance for helping me understand this.
When sampling, the source setting sets both the input jacks and the sample rate. The options are Line1&2 26K, Line1&2 48K, Line3&4 48K, Phono1 26K, Phono1 48K, Phono2 48K.
Samples recorded at 26K sample rate are 12-bit, and samples recorded at 48K are 16-bit.
When a new sample is saved, it is saved at the selected sample rate and bit depth.
The Audio Engine setting is for playback, not sampling.
It sets the pitch shifting method: either the Classic drop sample method, or HiFi.
The Classic setting also sets the playback to 12-bits, zeroing out the lower four bits of 16-bit files.
Neither setting changes the sample rate.
OK, thanks Mickey. I get it now
Then along the same lines, Is there a way to have the Audio Engine retain its setting each time I turn the machine on, or do I need to choose what I want each time I power up?
Audio Engine is a per-track setting. It is saved in the KIT file.
