Thanks for the advice but once more for the dummies as they say!
So, with a 20bit audio card like the Layla you can infact get 24/96 into the computer bypassing the layla pci but if you wish to send your final mix song out to a dat at 24 bit, you would need a second Rosetta, right?
But, if you wish to mix in 24/96 and then mix down to 16/44.1 to burn a CD, all within the computer, one Rosetta would suffice, correct?
Sorry, one more question. I have been told that although you can dither down to 16 bits for CD within a software program like Wavelab that you get poor quality, something to do with alaising??
If this is true, is this another reason for getting two Rosettas?
Thanks so much for your info.
