DJM 2000 USB recording quality

Hi,

when I'm using USB recording, I can get 16 bit, but what sample rate? Is it the same Rate chosen in the club setup menu? Or is this just for the digital out?

The Sound Card frequency is 44.1kHz or 48kHz depending on the mode. In 16bit, it's 44.1kHz.

Hm, bad...

But for what is are the 96 kHz @ the club menu? What can I adjust with it?

Sorry, I don't understand. Sampling rate for what? For USB recording or for digital out?

The Sound Card Sampling Rate is 16bit or 24bit at 44.1kHz or 48kHz respectively. If you use the sound card to record, it will be 16bit at 44.1kHz.

The Mixer Sampling Rate is 96kHz. Yes, this would be your digital out.

First, thank you!

But 2 more questions: ;-)

1) why does Ableton give me the opportunity to record from the DJM 2000 with 48 kHz?

2) If I understand it right, I would get a better soundquality if I'm using my digital in (SPDFI or what ever) than using the USB connection?!?

Ableton gives the opportunity to record at different sample rates because it's a software program. The same thing with Audacity. However, if you have different sample rates coming from your source and your software, you will receive a funky slowed down or sped up recording because they are not in sync. When using a sound card, you need to make sure both of the sample rates are the same to ensure an accurate recording.

The sample rate isn't as important as the bit depth. You can record something at 44.1, 48, 88.2, or 96 kHz, but if you're going to be putting it on a CD, then it's going to go back down to 44.1 anyways. The bit depth is more important in my opinion. So yes, you would receive a higher quality recording by using the digital out, but then it also depends on the sound card or device quality you are running that signal into.

Hmmm, that's weird... 

"This unit supports 48 kHz 16 bit, 48 kHz 24 bit and 44.1 kHz 16 bit USB audio signals."

Perhaps it is only necessary to select 96kHz in the software because it's what the mixer is set to within the settings.

What do you mean by you "cannot choose it on your PC"?

Does Ableton recognize the DJM-2000 as an interface and you're able to select it?

Yes, exactly, Ableton recognize the DJM 2000 as an audio interface with the only optin 16 bit, but you can choose between 44.1 and 48 kHz!

So again, @ someone from Pioneer:

What is the actual sample rate you can get via USB? Because as I said, in the club menu you can choose to 96 kHz, but most software (not only Ableton, I saw this on another software (I do not remeber the name) in a club) shows only the option of 44.1 or 48 kHz!

@Xador > As I mentioned before... the USB only supports 48 kHz at 16bit and 44.1 kHz at 16bit.

Therefore those are the only options within Ableton because it's communicating with the DJM-2000's sound card.

The 96 kHz option in the Club Setup Menu is for the Digital Out.
