I haven't been able to find much of a satisfactory answer anywhere regarding the great debate between 24 bit and 16 bit sound recordings. It seems to be that most people say recording in 24 bits is the way to go, because of a larger dynamic range, but I'm wondering if that really translates to better quality in a practical sense that most people will notice.
At any rate, I wanted to know whether there would be a noticeable difference in 24 bit midi samples as opposed to 16 bit midi samples. The midi orchestral plug ins that I use come in 16 bit and 24 bit. I'm wondering if it's worth shelling out the extra money to upgrade to the 24 bit and if I will really notice a huge difference in quality.
I'm using a UAD Apollo as my audio interface. An uno midi to usb cable to connect my keyboard, and I compose orchestral works that range from 4-16 individual midi tracks.
Will 24 bit midi samples and 24 bit recording create a perceptible difference, and is there anywhere that I can check for examples?
