    Do you really care about 24/96?

    Is 24/96 recording all that important? I've hear that there is debate whether the human ear can even detect the difference between 24/48 and 24/96.

    oops screwed up on that 3rd poll option. It should read I like to record somewhere between 16 bit 44.1 Khz and 24 bit 96 Khz

    I care about 24. I don't care about 96.

    I have the ears of a Greek salad.

    I'm not bothered with 96k. I'm happy to go for 16/44.1, if necessary. My DAW however uses 24/44.1 as the standard recording mode - so I use that.

    I don't really care about anything higher than CD quality right now. If I can't master my songs or have them mastered what is the use in recording at a higher rate. Can't hear it anyway.

    From there, a mastering house if the project warrants it (from which a 16/44.1 Redbook is produced for duplication) -- or if the client is not mastering it, I punch it myself as needed then produce a 16/44.1 Redbook disc for the client.
