can you export 32 bit wav file from logic?

i currently work with GB but am considering upgrading to Logic. I will record in one of these and then send to my producer friend to mix in ProTools. Previously I've hit the 16 bit limit with GB wav exports - annoying my perfectionist friend. My question is can you export a wav file at a higher bit rate (than GB's 16 bit) within LogicPro? And are this extra bits really going to make a difference music fidelity wise? What would be an industry standard to retain quality in your stems?

thanks in advance. clearly my audio knowledge is limited...

Depends on what industry. Film cats usually like to see 48K delivery, but I don't think they'll run you out of town if it wasn't. 44.1 is the music industry standard. i read 32 bit was overkill unless you planned on doing a whole bunch of internal processing on the files or something like that. Folks usually record at 24bits nowadays. A CD plays back at 44.1K 16bits.

If you need 32bits for some reason, Logic can definitely output at this rate.
