a technical question: what internal bit resolution is Cantabile working with? 24 bit integer of 32 bit float?
For me it is relevant for my gain staging: if all connections and gain sliders work at 32 bit float, there shouldn’t be problems with either clipping or leaving headroom before the final output. This means that I can
- on on side leave ample headroom in my individual racks without losing bit resolution and simply adjust the overall output level before D/A conversion
- on the other hand increase an audio input’s gain to a very hot level in order to drive a guitar amp plugin really hard without risking digital clipping (unless the amp itself is working at 24 bits fixed internal resolution)
if, OTOH, somewhere in Cantabile’s routing, the signal path or processing were 24 bit fixed, I’d have to watch gain staging at every step in my setup (of course, I still need to do look at levels so that my plugins perform within reasonable parameters - that’s clear!)
So: is there a 24 bit fixed risk somewhere in Cantabile’s signal path?
