    Intel SST Audio Device (WDM), I want 32 bit (64 bit) 192 kHz


    .

    I do have this:

    NOTE BOOK
    T-bao

    Intel(R) Atom (TM) x5-Z8350 CPU @ 1.44 GHz, RAM 4 GB
    64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
    Windows 10


    Problem:

    Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Sound > Speakers > Intel SST Audio Device (WDM) > Properties > Advanced > 16 bit, 48 kHz

    Please, I am going to use a professional music production application. However: I've foud in my Note Book this specification: 16 bit, 48 kHz for Intel SST Audio Device (WDM). This is a very low level specification. Because I need: 32 bit (64 bit) and 192 KHz.

    Please, can I change this specification in my Note Book (if yes, how?) or, if not, can I exchange Intel SST Audio Device (WDM) for a better one with 32 bit (64 bit) and 192 KHz and what's the name of this new one?

    Intel SST Audio Device (WDM) is an audio driver (software) ? or hardware? I suppose it is a software (a driver)? So, I could exchange it, couldn't I?

    If yes, please, what's the name of this new one I should look for? Any idea where I could find it? Please a link.

    Many thanks.

    PC sound cards make poor recording interface units. Best to get an external USB connected "real" recording interface unit.
    I don't know why you want 32 bit 196Khz, do you realize how big the files will be and how much computing power it will take for this type of file. According to your PC spec's it will not handle or very poorly handle what you want. If at all, only very high priced recording interface units that MAY have this capability.

    I have a recording studio and record 24 bit, 44.1Khz. Occasionally I will record at 96Khz but that is only for some effect processing and then its converted to lower bitrate. The ultimate wav file (full fidelity) is 16 bit, 44.1Khz (redbook standard) so when you convert the mostly just zero's anyway will be truncated.

    Update. I located one recording interface that has the 32 bit/196Khz capability. It is $995.00 US.
    Here is another article on the 32 bit 196Khz "Myth". Consider a 32 bit 196Khz song file is 92.2 MB per minute! A typical song Is 3 to 3.5 minutes long, thus a 3 minute song file would be 276.6 MB!

    Intel SST Audio Device (WDM)


    Guys, thank you for your replies!


    I do not insist on 32 bit / 192 kHz. But on the other hand, 16 bit is tooo low. So, 24 bit could be OK.
    Also 192 kHz is not very necessary. But, at least 94 kHz would be nice.


    Why I want this one?

    Because, according to my experience, when I record my singing with 16 bit / 48 kHz, I cannot hear the details in my voice and everything is very quiet, not loud. But when I used 24 or 32 bit (94 or 192 kHz) the record is nicely loud and with the details in my voice. (My breathing is heard, even!)

    I cannot buy an external sound card and an external microphone, because I do not have any money for it. So, I have to use my built-in microphones and the built-in sound card.

    This is why I am looking for the best way how to resolve the problem with what I do have. And some ways to make the best settings, and if the settings is not possible, what software (audio drivers) I should look for to replace the one what I do have right now?

    You are fooling yourself with what you are doing or want to do. You can only have what the capabilities of the PC audio and nothing more. Even high end commercial recording studios do not do what you want to do.

    Intel SST Audio Device (WDM), I want 24 bit / 94 kHz


    .
    Are you saying the capabilities of the PC audio is not for at least 24 bit / 94 kHz in spite of the fact my PC is 64 bit?

    P.S. By the way, I do not know any professional music producers who would use 16 bit / 48 kHz.
    24 bit /192kHz is a standard for an external microphone preamp in music professional studios.

    Professionals use equipment that costs in the upwards of tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars. With your current low budget notebook, you are not going to get anything better. The sound is built into the motherboard/CPU, with software controlling it. If you want studio quality recordings, you are going to need to spend some money or get into a studio.

    Just to add to what was said above, whether the OS is 32 bit or 64 bit has zero to do with what audio capabilities it has.

    Intel ST Audio Device (WDM)


    .
    I know, I cannot change the built-in hardware. But if I can change a software, could I improve it?

    What is "Intel ST Audio Device (WDM)"? Is it hardware (built-in sound card) or software (driver)?

    I just cannot understand when my PC is 64 bit, why it could not work on 24 bit? It should work, shouldn't it?

    The problem is Intel ST Audio Device (WDM) is 16 bit/48 kHz. So, why not to replace this with something similar but with 24bit/94 kHz. This one just is a software (driver), isn't it?
