Recording Vinyl 96/24 export to 41/16 CD wav workflow

Hello!

I am using Audacity for some time now for recording vinyl records professional and I try to switch over to Logic Pro X as the audacity crashes to often and creates project folders with too many small files. I am using a high quality DAC from Prism (lyra 2) and some hifi gear (no explanation needed about hardware here)

 

Workflow in Audacity was:

1. Creat a project with 96khz/24bit

2. Put needle on Record

3. press record (if leveling/gain feels right/not going into red)

4. wait forever until the track is recorded

5. press pause

6. cut beginning and end

7. save audacity project in a folder and name everything

8. export as .wav in 41k/16 bit to burn on CD (DJing)

9. put everything on my external 2TB NAS drive for archiving and later use

 

So I want to apply this method to Logic now. First problem: 44.1 project is standard so I have to use my own templete every time I start?

 

How can I export a .wav in 44.1k when my project is 96k? Do I have to use bounce for exporting?

 

that is it for the moment :wink: Thank you in advance! :)

1. Yes but then I have to set it every time to 96 or 192.. sets standard 44.1, no idea where I can change it.

 

2. This feature is also not saved and I cannot set 41 a standard bounce sample rate to export :(

 

Next questions : why does the track time start at one hour?!

 

How can I change the "timeline" from beats to time in seconds

 

How can I narrow down a track to only the part where I have music. I mean it includes silent parts after the recorded wav. Difficult to google this^^
