I searched in this forum but found no answer to my questions.
I have to digitize media (“cassette”, " that contain voices, they are conference recordings.
I use Audacity but my problem is this:
it is better to digitize at 32 bit float and then export/save the file WAV 16 bit PCM;
Or is better to digitize directly at 16 bit PCM and save at 16 bit PCM?
If I digitize 32 bit float but save the file 16 bit PCM, do i have a loss of information?
I chose the sampling rate of 44100 Hz because it is more than enough since they are recordings of conference (voices of people)
