So the question of sample rate is a passionate subject for many. More and more we are seeing music delivered at high sample rate to the deligt of many. Sound is pretty much always recorded at higher rates nowadays, and a prominent sample library developer I've noticed delivers it's libraries at 48k but even so these samples have been downsampled from original rate before consumer delivery. So my question is what is the reason for not allowing an option for higher sample rate delivery for those who desire?

Hi,

I think the VSL samples are recorded at 44.1 kHz. A samplerate significant higher then that does not provide any benifits and can even make things worse, besides using more CPU-performance and disk-space.

Here is an article explaining it: https://sonicscoop.com/2...better-and-when-it-isnt/

Best, Ben

Thanks Ben for responding, however acording to Dietz samples are converted from analogue to digital in 24 bit / 96 khz, they are stored and edited in 32 bit FP / 96 kHz, and are converted to the delivery format as last step before mapping within the VI.

That's correct.
