FAQ

Questions
What does 96kHz / 24-bit mean for audio?
Digital audio files are made in

  • Splitting the audio signal at regular points in time (96 000 splits per second means 96 KHz),
  • At each step, the sound is stored in data, as 16-bit or 24-bit, 96KHz / 24-bit is better than audio CDs, mastered at 44.1KHz / 16-bit.

What is the use of 96kHz / 24-bit in Djing?
With tracks mastered in 24-bit/96KHz, the mix will sound better on a 96 Khz/24-bit interface than on a 16-bit/44.1KHz interface (while tracks mastered in 44.1KHz/16-bit (audio CD) will not sound better on a 24-bit/96KHz hardware than on a 16-bit/44.1KHz).

iTunes offers sound tracks "Mastered for iTunes" at 96KHz/24-bit:

  • DeeJays mixing tracks "Mastered for iTunes" get a better audio quality on a 96Khz/24-bit audio interface as DJ Console Rmx2,
  • DeeJays who want to offer their mix as "Mastered for iTunes" need a 96KHz/24-bit resolution.
