Memory is not the issue cause my OS and DAW is 64bit.
P.S. Can I pay via PayPal?
that's a hard one. I think that 44.1 sounds very good.I personally work with 88.2 or 48 because I think those sample rates sound best.
Now in your case you might be better to buy 44.1 for now. I made the option to buy all sample rates at a cheap price. For the amount of work that goes into the library it is a very good deal. To my ears 96 loses subtlety's in through src going down to 44.1, I notice you lose the tightness and perception of space a little. This I'm guessing is due to ringing artifacts.
the only thing I can suggest is to make your mind up from the demos and see what you prefer.
The silk is going to be updated named v3, This is due to the release of acqua plugin coming. silk's low end and mid band has been improved for v3 and aqua. Feedback has been wonderful. Lows i feel are a incredible feat for digital. On update for regular version, the price will be increased. Watch this space!
Updates and price increase,will not occur until after release of silk acqua.

having been lucky enough to test the Silk Aqua EQ I can attest to the fact that the lows have real WEIGHT. The other bands are great also. I could prob do a whole mix just with Silk...and its just 2 Nebula instances and very light.
Yes - I'm really looking forward to the Silk Aqua, I'm already got the Neb3 Silk version and it's very nice, looking forward to the improved workflow, optimization and sound that Aqua-Nebula4 is going to give it! Yummy
