96k programs with 48k audio (recommended conversion)

Postby MrLove » Tue Feb 01, 2011 11:14 pm

Which conversion gives the best result?

1) Convert the audio files to a 96k project... or
2) Let nebula convert the programs to 48k

I work at 48kHz with audio files at this very same sample rate and 32-bits FP so based on my experiences and listening tests:

2) Let Nebula convert programs to 48kHz

Nebula's SRC is VERY good, I don't hear ANY problem with it. There are users who claim they can hear it so maybe you should do your own listening tests and decide for yourself. If you hear a difference think "is this difference a justifiable reason to tax your CPU at 96kHz and work with less Nebula instances and cripple your workflow when you're in fact achieving better results than before at 48kHz?" Even after conversion, Nebula sounds better than most plug-ins.

I second that. I work at 48khz so I let Nebula SRC from 96 or 44.1 to my session rate of 48.

Small voice in the back of my head says "work at 96" but the RADAR II goes to 48khz only and I'm not wanting to upgrade to a different set of converters at this time.

I do wonder if Nebula's high quality mode still works on a realtime export using cubase 6 though because I use it so frequently alongside outboard gear.

Resample your audio up to 96k,with a program like r8brain.
