5.3.3. Setting the Project's Sample Rate and Format

You can change the sample rate and sample format (see Section 1.3, “Sample, Sample Rate, Sample Format, and Bit Rate” for definitions). You should set the sample rate and sample format when you begin working on a project. You should not change the sample rate or sample format after you record audio. If you will use audio files that already exist, you should use the sample rate and sample format of the existing files.
  1. Choose FilePreferences to open the "Preferences" window.
  2. Click Quality in the list on the left of the window.
  3. Change the settings as you need. We recommend a sample rate of 44 100 Hz and a sample format of 16 bits for most projects.
