In essence, and after many tests as to what would yield the best quality, I did the following:
- record to my Mac using Quicktime
- transcode the resulting native AIFC files into Apple Lossless M4A using Finder
- edit in Adobe Premiere
- bulk-transcode to MP3 files with ACX specifications using Adobe Media Encoder
I’ve tried various other workflows, but the above seems to work great for me.
Let me share my reasoning and experiment with you here.
