    44.1 kHz/16-bit seems to be the norm at the moment, well thats what most labels are asking for anyway.

    Although I've noticed that 48 kHz/24-bit seems to be creeping in more these days, that will probably be the new standard in a few years I'm guessing.

    I work in 44 kHz 24 bit, and render out wavs in the same format.
    Note that MP3 doesn't have a bit depth in the same sense as PCM encoded audio (like WAV), so if that's your target just render in the same bit depth your project is using (higher is better).
