I don't really ever see the need to pass 96k for most stuff, but sometimes, if I feel like I can, I'll run at 192.

Why not?

If you have the processing power and disk space maybe it should be 192? Sampling rates are still very controversial. I only recorded at 96 because I thought it sounded better so I stuck with it.

People will drill you and tell you it doesn't sound better because of Nyquist/Shannon blah blah blah..... But if you think 192 sounds better, why not? neither Nyquist or Shannon ever used DAWs or plugins. If you are in fact a Nyquist/Shannon purist, then just record at 32k/16 bit. Most people can't hear above 16k. So you will be fine.
