I'd add that there's probably little point working at 96khz unless your studio is
absolutely the bollox, with a fantastic room, real high end outboard, and mics that cost
thousands... with that quality throughout the signal chain. Otherwise you'll be forcing
your computer to work far harder for a sound benefit that will probably be inaudible.
24bit at 44.1 khz is good enough for 90% of projects, and a lot of us, including
me, are still working at 16bit, 44.1 khz, which for a lot of electronica is still
adequate. Film music has to be recorded at 48khz. 44.1 khz is the standard for CDs.
As the previous poster said, all your digi gear has to be running at the same
rates, and choose the unit (probably the soundcard) with the best clock and jitter
suppression to act as the master clock for everything else. Working out of sync will
introduce all kinds of phase problems and timing inconsistencies which will really crap up
the sound, whatever rates you choose.
