a couple of things:
- how does AP deal with bit depth? e.g. does it truncate or dither when going from say 24 to 16 bit?
- also, I had to search for how to change the bit depth - I think putting this in the 'Characteristics...' selection under the 'Sound' menu is unintuitive and confusing.
- better to incorporate things like 'Sample Rate' and 'Bit Depth' under Effects or in the 'Save As' dialog box.

I can't answer the question -- but the positioning seems perfectly
rational to me (of course I am used to it). It is the characteristics
of the sound that I am changing.

It uses Apple's CoreAudio routines. I believe that they dither rather
truncate, but only Apple can confirm that.

'Characteristics' implies more of a perceptual aspect of a sound (something that identifies it) not a mathematical one

anyway, too many mouse clicks to change the SR and Res of a soundfile
a pull down for each the bit depth and SR in the main window would be an even better idea

Just click on the bottom left corner of the sound window (where it
displays the bit depth and SR), this is probably faster than accessing
the menu item. Regards,
