Cubase

Hi

I have one stupid question :

In project settings on cubase i can set the files to be recorded as "wave files 24 bit" or "Radio wave files 24 bit" what should i choose ? i was always using radio wave files 24 bit ....
besides that i am always using 0 db Pan low as i feel comfortable with mixing like that , any thoughts ?
Please help me i have a session tomorrow

You mean "broadcast" wave files, right?

I'd leave them as regular wave files for recording and mixing, but when you want to export mixed songs in order to burn them to a cd, you should use the broadcast wave format.

If you feel comfortable with the 0 dB pan law, stick with it.

I think broadcast waves just have more metadata, there's really no reason to use them.

As for pan law, it's whatever you like.

The difference between broadcast wav and regular wav is the BWF format has timestamping info in the header.

You shoudl always use boradcast by default. The reason is that if you ever have a problem tossing a file out of your session, you can reimport the BWF and it will go back to the exact location you recorded it at. There is absolutely no advantage to using regular wav files over BWF, but as mentioned, there can be an advantage when using BWF.

As for Pan Law, use whatever you are comfortable with.
