Lyra 1 seems spot on for this kind of sampling. Interesting indeed.
Couldn't find a danish retailer for it, but a german one had it, so could be an option, thanks

the best result you'll get, when you sample the gear at the exact rate you want to use it with. if it matches, the result is most perfect.
you need to take into account the quality of your converter. high quality converters sound good at any rate starting from 44,1 khz up to 96khz.
for higher sr, many electrotechnicians say, that you get other problems up there, so higher numbers do not equal "better".
so direct answer: programs at 44,1 khz do absolutely have a future for people working at 44,1 khz in their daw.
i am working mainly at 48 khz, so i do sample at that rate, when doing free programs.
Yes, that makes sense
(sampling at the rate you want to use, so you avoid unnecessary conversions as much as possible)
With my own music I work at 44.1kHz through the entire digital chain (except for plugins that oversample internally), but I'm not sure that commercial programs at that rate is really possible anymore (with Henry Olonga and others giving away their 44.1kHz programs for free)
I'm test-sampling different things through a prosumer-card at the moment (at 44.1kHz) and I'm getting quite good results with this already.
My first tests used 2 sound-cards (one for input and another for output), but for some reason I got severe phasing-issues that way (I assume it was jitter-related). So I think I'm learning some good lessons already

I looked that one up too, but couldn't find any dealers for it (I found a few forum-links where people were selling their used models, so I assume it's an older card)
Seemed to be similar to the Lyra though, so at least I now have an idea of what type of card to look for
