Should we be exporting our stems in a 16 bit or 24 bit WAV format? I've noticed a little degradation in quality when playing my tracks in Prime when using 16 bit but not sure if I notice any difference on my headphones at least in 24. I'm using GB BTW. Thanks!

Hey Preston,

It is best to export stems to use in PRIME at 44.1 kwz / 16 bit. PRIME does convert files to .m4a due to Apple's rules for audio in their app, but the quality shouldn't be noticeable. We still recommend exporting in .wav.
Here is a video on how to export your stems to use in PRIME as well to make sure that everything aligns with what we do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3biB6GTnWk

Hope this helps! Thanks for being a part of the community!
