Why not shoot this stuff at 192k? I record all my effects at 192 these days, I figure why limit the usability of the stuff.
I rarely shoot at 192 mainly because the broader fidelity is maybe 10% better than 96k, at double the storage space. even with TB drives being as cheap as they are, backing up and restoring them still takes a lot of time.
I will do certain things at 192, but it just depends on what it is- I know for the weapons sessions I do, a 40gb 744 internal drive would not be enough space for a days worth of recording. Since I an running usually a minimum of 3 of them, there is a practical hurdle to overcome.
