Practical tips for recording, editing, and mastering.
yes, it makes sense to mix in 24 or 32 bit because you lose dynamic range through processing, but for export and playback, 16 bit is plenty.

Even if it is multiple it's lossy. Because for downsampling you have to apply low-pass filter first before doing resampling.

These are tiny details, but theoretically its only lossy if there is content above the nyquist frequency of the new rate and only that higher content gets lost (which is inaudible if downsampling from 96k). In practice though it also depends on the quality of your low pass filter a perfect "brickwall" filter takes an infinite amount of time to apply, so you tradeoff computation speed with quality.
I think I'm preaching to the choir though.

Know it now. I will remain with flac or wave now i know that.
You need to know also that flac didn't store values above -1/1, so, when you've run into clipping and recorded in flac, you cant restore the sound by simply reduce the volume or normalize.
