akai sample disc question - sampling rate

akai sample disc question - sampling rate

I'm thinking about getting into sampling for home demos but I know nothing about midi - my MO is always setting up mics and recording acoustic instruments in a room.

But I'm drooling over all the various sampled instruments available in Akai format CD-ROM. I recently learned of Kontakt - which supposedly can read Akai discs but I've never used it. Still thinking about looking into it.

Last night I was laying in bed wondering this:

If you're recording your drums, vocals, and guitar at 96k, can you still add tracks using a software sampler like Kontakt? I assume Akai discs are either 48k or 44.1k - which I assume would be incompatible with 96k recording - but I really have no idea.

Can anyone tell me? Are you stuck recording at 44.1k if you want to use sampled instruments?
