Hey dudes, I've been mastering tracks in Pro Tools at 24-bit, 48Khz. Sending the tracks out to a hardware L2 and dithering them to 16-bit, then bringing the tracks back into Protools digitally. I've then been exporting the recorded tracks/regions and bumping the sample rate down to 44.1Khz (in this session the tracks aren't peaking). If i import the exported tracks back into a 44.1 khz pro tools session, they are audibly clipping, the top end has gotten crunchy and the meters are peaking. If i import the same 16bit 44.1khz track into a 48Khz pro tools session, the track sounds better and the meters don't peak. Why is this so? Anybody have any ideas?
