Here for the gear
Thanks a lot Lagerfeld ! I've been struggling with this for a long time.... Like mastervargas said you saved me the trouble.

I'm still wondering about 24 vs 16 bits for Youtube?

With -100 dBFS noisefloor it seems that we are closer to 16 than 24 bits dynamic. To my mind it's still useful to upload 24 bit master to avoid the dither noise from the 24-> 16 conversion.

What do you think ?
