I always run 24/48 have only recorded at 96 a few times don’t think it’s worth the extra space. But 16/44?

I think it depends on how you listen as well. I listen to DVD-A format at home and 24/44.1 isn't going to work. For anything I record running analog line in to a handheld recorder I record at 24/48. If I'm going to lug around a stand alone ADC > Bit bucket then I'm inclined to go 24/96 - again just so I can listen to 24/48 or 24/96 with DVD-A format.

It has to do with video capture. Back in the beginning of digital video, 24 frames per second became a standard. 48k syncs much easier than 44.1k to 24 FPS.

This is discussed many times, but I’ll *always* be a proponent of over sampling past what we need. Storage is cheap and easily available today, and YOU may not hve a need for more than 16-bit/44.1k, but in the future someone doing post will thank you. Digital filters and compression/saturation plugins benefit MASSIVELY from increased bit depth and sample rate as this results in less error, which is noticeable and appreciable even to non-audiophiles in my experience.

EDIT: also, up-sampling is bad for many reasons. Much better to down sample and throw out info, than try and reconstruct it into higher sample rates.

Personally, for the record, I run at 24/96 and am considering upping to 24/192.

I'm just curious about your reason for this.  I'm not implying anything, just genuinely curious.

I just want to state a concurrence with Dr. wforwumbo here:

I can't hear the difference between raw 44.1 and 96khz files. However, I find that certain high end eq, dynamics, and, especially, "saturation" plugins sound significantly better when applied to files of greater bit depth and sample rates. So I download the 24/96 versions of other people's "tapes" in order to use plugins during playback. So even if you, liken me, can't hear the difference in a raw file, there may still be sonic benefits, for some people, to higher sample rates.

I used to record at 24/48, but have now switched to 24/96, having implemented plugins on playback in my listening room.

nobody uses cds anymore. ill do the 24bit at whatever bitrate and usually create a V0
