writesf always uses 16bit and writes a 44.1khz (also if it's the wrong 
sample rate). i had once the impression that you can really hear the 
conversion from 32bit to 16bit and i also would like to record a 24bit 
or 32bit file, but nobody fixed writesf since i asked 2 month ago. seems 
that none of the developers is interested to get a decent audio quality 
when recording ;-).
