How do you mix a project which is clipping in 24 bit but not in 32 bit?
Your ar not able to listen to 32 bit, your DA is still 24 bit.
DAWs work in 32 bit float. That's why even when the meters are in the red you won't hear distortion.
Hang on a second - the meters being in the red in Reason has nothing to do with distortion. If you clip the output in Reason, you will hear distortion (you may not be bothered by it if it is brief enough and on percussive material).
I agree with drloop - if you clip you will hear it, even if you can lower it later if you export at 32 bit.
The whole “meters in red but not distorting” is a Reason thing, and has to do with two things in Reason. One, that channel meters read in RMS, which always reads below peak levels., and two, that the RMS meters default to showing “red” at -12dBFS. You can change this is the “red meters” bug you, fwiw. But RMS meters are pretty useless for showing clipping since the acutual peak level can be as much as 10-20dB or more higher that what is shown on the meters. Hope that made sense…
