I'm doing some recordings off of a vintage Roland SC-55 MIDI synthesizer which is capable of 16-bit @ 32 kHz. Is there any reason to record the audio at 44.1 or 48 kHz in my recording software or to configure the recording equipment to capture at a higher fidelity?
On a similar note, my Roland SC-88 is capable of 18-bit audio output but my recording hardware is only capable of 16-bit. Would the answer still be the same?
I am using a U-CONTROL UCA202 as my ADC hardware and Audacity for software.
I can confirm which options are available from my recording device from the Windows sound dialog:
