Pro Tools 8 401 Mastering in Pro Tools.

Hi. ThereÂ´s something I canÂ´t understand. When Phil Magniotti master in Pro Tools, he records in realtime the results of plug-ins in the Mix Track and the Master Fader track to another track. That's great! But the last plug-in in the master fader track has a dither process, in the tutorial case, a 16 bit dither. You are working in a 24 bit session so whatever audio you record in that session is going to be 24 bit, despite of the 16 bit dither. After that, Phil just export the files at 16 bit 44.1 Khz with the best conversion, but that conversion is only for sample rate, not bit depth. I think we are truncating 8 bit here. I think you have to bounce for bit conversion in Pro Tools o record the master using external gear. Thanks.Reply
