Ok, I've just started a new job, managaging an audio project. I have never done any audio work before, so my questions are probably basic.


I need to convert a bunch of wav files to mp3 files. But my wav files are all different bit rates, some 16, some 32 float. Will there be a difference between the files converted from 16, and those converted from 32? Should I make them all the same bit rate before I convert them?


Also, I am supposed to be producing content that can be downloaded from the internet in mp3's. What mp3 rate should I use?


Thank you!
