Waveform Wednesday: The 24 Bit Advantage

Along with sample rate, the other typical decision one has to make when beginning a recording is to chose the proper bit depth. Although 16 bits is the standard for CD quality audio, many engineers record at 24 bits, yielding increased dynamic range (the difference in volume between loud and soft signals). Here is one engineer's argument for recording and mixing in 24 bit.
