my Sample rate 88,200 and a Bit Depth 32 or higher
and you need to make sure you use this all the time when you are cutting up things or just playing around.
use quality samples form the start or upsample and EQ before you use it a lower quality sample

i use 3 EQs on each channel one 2 for cutting frequencies(because its stronger) and one for boosting
volume is all so important just as EQ-ing
i just learn how to mix on youtube
