  • 44khz files?

    Just was sent some audio files...turns out they are WAV files, but 44khz, not 48 khz. In the old days, these 44khz files would not be seen by EDIUS. Now, in 8.22, they load fine..Any reason I would need to change these to 48khz before using? They are all short clips...5-10 seconds or so.

    Edius will do a realtime sample rate conversion from 44 to 48, if your project is 48. Although the fractional resampling between the two used to be an issue back in the day, with aliasing etc. issues. These days most things handle it well.

    If it sounds OK I wouldn't worry about it. If you notice anything odd, then maybe try using an audio sample rate converter/tool, although I doubt there would be anything too serious that warrents going outside of Edius.

    To satisfy your curiosity. Export one of the audio files from Edius at 48 to a wav, so you've done a 44 to 48 conversion. Then compare the resampled Edius 48 file against the original 44 in an audio player. The player should play them back at their native sample rates, so you'll be able gauge any differences if they're there.

    If you don't know the difference between Azimuth and Asimov, then either your tapes sound bad and your Robot is very dangerous. Kill all humans...... Or your tape deck won't harm a human, and your Robot's tracking and stereo imagining is spot on.

    Is your Robot three laws safe?

      Thanks...confirms what I thought. Just for fun, later on today, I'll do a re-sample of a short file and do a comparison.
      Always relieved that I can "just edit " :-)
