    16 bit samples

    If my samples are 16 bits is there a benefit in exporting the waves I made with those samples in FL Studio in 32 bits. For instance I make a drum loop with a 16 bit snare sample and a 16 bit kick sample. When I export in 32 bit is that a better quality than exporting in 16 bit.

    Finally how would it work it the 32 bit loops is used in Acid when only renders in 24 bit. Thanks.

    Usually the final bit conversation is done in your mastering session. It really doesn't matter if the software allows multi-bit files. In the end, everything ends up being 16 bits.

    Peace.

    You can never get more quality by upping the sample rate - with a bit of common sense, it's easy to realize that you cannot just generate more data into a sample from nothing. Also, there isn't really such thing (yet) as 32-bit audio; there's 32-bit processing, but the audio quality will max out at 24 bits. What you record is what you have.
