You need an application that will process 24/96, then you need an interface or A/D converter that will output this format to the application. I think just about every audio workstation application these days can do 24/96.

The Digi 003 will do this but so will a $30 soundcard as will a $7500 Lavry A/D converter provided you have a digital audio input into your PC.

I don't mean this in any offensive way, but from the sound of it, I don't know that you'd be able to really appreciate any difference between 96k and other sample rates. You might be better off first worrying about more simple and tangible improvements, like monitors, room treatment, and just simply practicing your craft.

If you record in 24/96 cool, but it's not necessary for quality. What it will do is greatly increase the time to render your files and the size of the files. Then you need to dither it down anyway in the end when you want to put your stuff out. Not really worth it unless you have a strong computer and lots of disk space. You can get quality at 24/44.1 that is quite fine and most people use that.

I agree!
Unless you work on e.g. classical music, I doubt you will really need to use 96k.
99% of the projects I been a part of work with 44.1 or 48khz.

AMEN stick to 44.1/24 you'llnever know the difference,especially with rap.
Plus you'll be using up 4 times as much drive space.
