Some audio devices, especially USB devices that use WDM drivers, can not operate in 24-bit mode unless a variable in Cakewalk’s Aud.ini file is set to 1. The variable is Use24BitExtensible=<0 or 1>, which goes in the [name of your audio device (‘n’ in, ‘n’ out)] section of the Aud.ini file.
1.
Use the Utilities > Change Audio Format command to open the Change Audio Format dialog box.
2.
Choose a new bit depth in the New Bit Depth field.

If you’re changing to 16 bits, you can select or clear the Apply Dither check box. Dithering means to add a certain audio signal to 16 bit audio to make it sound more like it did as a higher-bit signal.
