You can choose the bit depth of newly-recorded files in Cakewalk, and you can change this value at any time. The Transport module in the Control Bar shows the project sampling rate and the current record bit depth setting.The choices for the recording bit depth setting are 16, 24, 32, and 64. At present, no devices can record at 32-bit or 64-bit resolution, so you don’t need to choose these options yet. 24-bit files give greater dynamic range than 16-bit files, so 24 is a good choice for music that gets very soft, as well as loud. 16-bit recording is efficient for many recording projects, especially louder projects.
1. Go to Edit > Preferences > File - Audio Data.
2. Under File Bit Depths, change the Record Bit Depth field to the desired number.
3. Click OK.
