    Hi, 1- Absolutely! 24 bits is the way to go. Just don't forget to dither your audio when you bounce to 16 bits. 2- In normal situation, I would choose AIFF because .CAF (Core Audio Format)is a new format and AIFF is more standard. CAF files is better in some situations. For example, CAF files don't have a maximum file size so you can record as long as you want. AIFF is limited to 4 GB.

    Re: Recording Audio
    Dithering is a very interesting and complex subject to discuss. Unwanted distortion is created when reducing bit depth of an audio recording. Dithering add low level white noise to the audio signal and will turn this distortion into a more pleasant sound. Dithering is also useful when reducing the bit depth of a digital image.
