Question: is it possible to incorporate a floating point bit depth less than 32 fp? like 24bit fp? i like the flexibility of floating point but its really expensive storage wise when working multichannel

    storage is cheap!

    You could use WavPack in one of the FP modes with a raised noise floor, e.g. 32 bit FP -120dB floor. This has a lot of the benefits of FP but also will compress well
