    Can someone explain why there’s not 24bit or even 32bit mp3? we are not limited by cds anymore..

      You can actually feed higher than 16 bit to some MP3-encoders. If you’ve got a decent MP3-decoder you may even get higher quality than 16-bit. E.g. 24 bit. You might want to check out LAME for encoding and a player supporting MAD (MPEG Audio Decoder) for the decode

    Mp3’s are widely accepted as they are because they capture what they need to without being too big of a file, with more bits obviously comes more audio samples overall thus increasing the size of the file. Not really an expert on files and what not but from what i understand .wav files are the go to for greater bit depths because they represent the sound about as accurate as a file can get. hope i helped.

    Lol this was extreamly helpful ive seen dither plugins before and was like [what is this… its not doing anything!] Ive been making music for a good few years, I use compressors i know how to get the results i want but i still dont know how the ratio and threshold work. Could landr explain? This was easy to understand. If you could help me understand compression id be very greatful!
