I am planning out a Horror Short Film for youtube. Since youtube will compress the audio and video quality. Is it better to record the audio and sound effects at 48k/24bit or 96k/24bit?


This is probably going to be opinion-based, but I only use 24 bit 48kHz for broadcast, let alone YouTube.

If, heaven forfend, Hans Zimmer or Skywalker Ranch rang me to engineer their next multi-million-dollar movie soundtrack, then obviously I'd reconsider.
Until then… 24/48k is good enough.

  • Thank you for your opinion. I think i'll stick with 48kHz/24 bit then.
