    When you save a tune as wav and you can select the depth anyone know the best one to choose 16 bt/ 32 bt/ etc

    I always just use 16 bit for tracks, 32 bit for samples.

    If I remember right there's some technical reason why 16 bit is the best option

    Are you referring to audio bit depth resolution? In which case 16 bits is the usual for CD based audio, but as a digital only format, it shouldn't matter as much. Most people tend to work a track in 24bits and bounce to 16 at the end or keep it in 24 depending on the situation. I tend to bounce down MP3's into 16, but then there's dithering which is usually needed due to noise being created by aliasing, which actually adds noise to get rid of perceived noise in low levels.
