  1. I agree.   I do not like upampling plugs for the most part.   Remember, it does not matter what the science is, or if its the SRC in the A/D or the was an A/D works are different rates or if the moon is aligned with Mars... simply go with your ears, doing blind test over many days. In the end, I don't care if its 8bit Radio shack setup that sound the best, ya know? I certainly do not do 96k cause its cool.  if so I would be bragging I work at 192...

    Very interesting read, Tim. I've waffled on whether to go to 96k a few times with very light experimentation, but I think I'll give it more opportunities to impress me after that article. I keep going between 44.1 and 48k, but your experience definitely has me curious now!


    Thanks for checking it out.   I also suggest something like Saracon to do your SRC, its worth it!

    here is my blog about it if you're interested:


  3. At 96k where i work at, thee is a big difference, but NOT in the way most think.    Between 44.1 and 48k you hear some differences in the highs and high mids. but going to 96k, there is no freq response difference really, but there is a big difference in depth of sound, in resolution (meaning things sound more natural and as they are in the room). A 3D and smooth-ness to the stereo field or sound stage. An acoustic gt sounds more there in front of you, especially when recording with room mics or stereo micing.  I am totally sold on 96k but not 192k, the trade off for resources is too much.  96k seems the best middel ground for my work,

    Upsample to...  I do convert files from 44.1 or 48k up to 96k simply because plugs sound better for the most Part. Example, the UAD 88RS, my favorite channel strip, sound bad on the top end (EQ) at 44.1 or 48. (the orignal 88RS, it does not upsample to prcoess).  but the same plug on 96K file has air and a beautiful top end. 

    Just my 2cents.  I did post examples in my blog abouit my own testing, but you should test yourself at 96K and 192k.
