Discussion • Re: how do I set file recording format?

Author: markw

I always start my recordings via Sound > ‘Record to New Document…’ with ‘Save While Recording’ selected.
Choices made within the ‘Record to New Document…’ window are “sticky” and remembered the next time round.

If you are using File > ‘New Sound Document’, then I believe it takes it’s defaults for; Sampling Rate, Sampling Depth and Channels (this is where you can set Mono or Stereo) from what has been set in AP’s; Preferences > Sound > ‘Default Format for New Files’.
Only on Saving files recorded with this option you can then specify a Format like mp3, etc… and any detailed settings applicable to the chosen format.
Again, from memory, these format specific choices are generally “sticky” too.

Personally I always record to Amadeus Pro’s own format which is loss less. And do any required clean up and editing still in said format.
Only when entirely finished working on a file will I then export it at the required compression to a lossy format, like mp3, etc… and make any format specific export choices then.
