Default 48k is my friend

I'm just sayin'.

I built my own rig and can record all the sessions I want at 48k. (M-powered)

Anything higher and I run into the static problem.

I am totally OK with 48k. Sounds great to me.


I am just wondering if much of the problems that folks have is trying to record at 92k when they don't need it.

More is not always better.


Peace

True. If you are recording music you should stick to 44.1k which is cd redbook standard. Recording at 48k and sample rate converting to 44.1 later only introduces artifacts and degrades the sound quality. Save 48k for when doing sound for video.

Sample rate conversion is worse than not having the extra resolution to begin with?

Proof?

I have been recording at 48k and mixing to 44.1k for ten years. Have not heard these "artifacts" and "degraded sound quality" you speak of.

If you're dithering and bouncing down correctly, you shouldn't have to worry about artifacts or sound degradation.
Anti-Aliasing and Nyquist should get rid of that

OK Thanks all. In that case I am going to stick with 44.1k as my standard. I just converted my work in progress all to that. Sounds great and still no static problems.

I wish the software had not have defaulted to 92k. This forum helped me figure out that that was the source of my static problems.

Just curious, what interface are you using? I know my Delta 1010L had this problem until I disabled C1E in the BIOS, and it took me months to find out what the issue was. A lot of m-audio products (I have read) have this issue. But I don't have the problem with my 2626 or my M-box micro (doesn't do 96k ) or my moble PRE (doesn't do 96k anyway.) Just a thought.

And as a side note, I cannot tell the difference recording at 96K and converting (with dither) to 44.1 and just recording at 44.1 except that I do think that recording material at 96k sounds better when adding affects. Just the opinion of my ears.

(I use a Mackie analog mixer for all my inputs and 2 audio channels in/out of the computer works fine for me.)

I'll take a look in the bios to see what the setting is for C1E.

But I am static-free now at 44.1k with all the tracks and inserts I want.

I only had problems at 96k myself. I record at 24/48 live and 24/96 in my studio and I am happy with the results. But 24/44.1 will give fine results IMO
