Hi,

Ardour and jack will always communicate their audio via float (that is 32bi=
t=20
real numbers). As only very few devices implement that, most devices are=20
talked to in integer-numbers. The newer ones are capable of doing 24bit=20
integers, some older ones are fixed to 16bit integers. So forcing jack to t=

to the audio-device in 16bit might give you lower quality during playback a=

recording but it will not affect the internal quality of the sound processi=

done inside jack and ardour and all the apps. And files exported from ardou=
r=20
will also not be affected by that jack-setting.
