Which WAV format?

Post by boringenormous » Fri Mar 13, 2009 8:32 pm

Hi there, I'm using Max to convert a bunch of material from Apple Lossless to WAV. Which is the recommended setting to use? Is "signed 16bit PCM" the same as the 44.1/16bit CD standard? It's important because I may burn CDs using the WAVS that will be played in a standalone CD player.

Cheers,

Mark

This may help:
See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WAV
It states: "...the most common WAV format contains uncompressed audio in the linear pulse code modulation (LPCM) format. The standard audio file format for CDs, for example, is LPCM-encoded, containing two channels of 44,100 samples per second, 16 bits per sample."
