Experienced Mastering Engineer Ian Shepherd puts a few audio myths to bed with a practical demonstration.

Higher bit-depths sound better because they're higher resolution, right ? Well.... no. In fact they just have higher noise-floor - even at 8 bit ! This video demonstrates this, and explains how to make sure you never lose "resolution"

Damn I was sooo wrong! Just watched this one: https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/songwriting-ingredients/26/audio-myths-the-ultimate-myth-buster-video-monty-montgomery/5345/msg57812;topicseen#msg57812

and now watched the above vid. With dithering applied correctly the 24 bit and 8 bit track are exactly identical (except for the extra noise in the 8 bit version). I seriously didn't know that and wouldn't have expected that!

Now I'm getting curious how important sampling frequency is!  ;) ;)
