*** POLL: AT WHAT FREQUENCY DO YOU RECORD?

I currently record at 88.2KHz - do all my processing and mixdowns including compression prior to resampling & dithering

this is multiple choice

i forgot to vote for both 88.2 and 44.1 - but thats because i still work on older projects that i started in 44.1 - now my projects i start at 88.2

48kHz here. Working mostly to picture for commercials, unfortunately. It's a 48k world.

Songs, I usually do 44.1.

ProTools usually.
although I recently did a record on Radar


mix to either a second system at 96k or to analogue tape. (or both, although we inevitably use the analogue master)

running Cubase4 im limited to 96K even though the fireface will do 192K

but i've stuck with 88.2 as my logic is the math is simpler to resample / dither from 88.2 32bits to 44.1 16bits than from 96K to 44.1 - please educate me / correct me in my likely erroneous ways

I use 44.1 so no down sampling is required. I am a little curious though as to what issues down sampling might cause. Is there a reason to go with even multiples of 44.1 instead of the maximum possible such as 96 or 192? Computers are designed to do complicated math so I would think this should not matter.

Should I not be suprised at these numbers?
Why do so many people record at 44.1 when 96 is so common and 192 is available?

Is it a disk space thing?

I clearly hear a nicer top end at 88/96. However I don't have a dual processor on my computer yet so I am a little bit limited to how many plug ins I can use on a song. Waves and some UAD plug ins also are optimized at the higher sample rates.

if you read the Daniel Weiss interview in my forum, you would get an answer.

from what i read in there - it makes some sense to record and process at 88.2 with low pass filters - prior to resampling / dithering -

what do you do george?

44.1. I don't have the converters/monitors/room yet to hear any real benefit from higher sample rates.

If you use lots of soft synths, the CPU usage will be very different...

It depends on the project, either 96,48 or 44.1. All of my mixes are at 96

44.1kHz.
PCM 701 (emp. off)->PCM601->2xDTC77 (for simul. rec. or dat clone)->CDR620 (gold on gold archivedisc).
And for restauration (not very often) the FC1 by ADT with pc harddisceditor.
Standalone, or in combination.

Is there any benefit to tracking music at 24bit 48k? I usually do, but only out of habit. Should I goto 44.1, to save 1 less dither?
