CD audio and Hi Res AudioWhy do my audio files need to be hi-res when CD’s are 44.1/16bit?

When you get your tracks mastered, the mastering studio will need the highest resolution files to get the most out of your mixes. If you get your tracks mastered at this hi res rate (usually 96k/24bit), the mastering engineer will then dither down the tracks and resample them to whichever sample rate you need, most likely 44.1/16bit, which is C.D. quality.
