Early digital gear were clocking 32k and doubling that to 64k would have been perfect. Damn CD gave us 44.1k otherwise our dilemma might be 32 / 48 / 64 what to choose?

With that said I'm fine with 48k (tracking) but some plugins do operate better at 96k so that's what I use for mixing
When in digital domain higher SR is probably better. What these guru guys were state is that with a too high SR the converters suffer during the reconstruction process
