I know that the last question wasn't directed at me, I had to chime in. I have never been able to hear the benefits of mixing as high as 96kHz. The only reason I can rationalize isn't what I hear, but because most of my favorite Nebula libraries are 96kHz! But I do hear an improvement, even slight, going up to 48kHz from 44.1. All of that aside, I have again been working mostly in 44.1 as I have been working with pre-recorded tracks more and more. I have to admit, I have really been enjoying the lighter CPU load......
96 to me rivals tape fidelity. It's a no go for me due to converters, file management and system load. It's a very clear difference in sound improvement to my ears anyway. But I'm no pro, and I do not release for broadcast..
441 to 48 I hear a difference as well. (I do videos and upsample from 441) I'm currently remixing an archived catalogue of 60 songs mostly 44/24, so no need to move it up. I think once I start writing and tracking again, I may move up to 48 as home turf.
I wonder if running neb at 44 on a 48k track will be wonky? I'm guessing running neb at 96-> to 48 will be best. I remain unsure and don't need to solve this for another month or so.
I just wanted to hear opinions and motive. Leading the witness if you will..
