First question so apologies if it's not up to scratch. Feel free to let me know :)
I'm wondering what sample rate you like to record at and what the sample rate generally is of any sound effects that you buy?
I've noticed a few recordists offering wavs at 24bit 192kHz, is there a good reason to record at this high a sample rate? I suppose as it oversamples so highly it avoids aliasing and has very good overall resolution? But is this a drastic improvement from 24bit 96kHz?
Currently I have a Zoom H4n which will only record 24bit 96kHz (and only in a certain mode :/) and use this bit depth and sample rate when recording sound effects. One thing I want to ensure in my work is high quality and clarity so would it be advisable to invest in equipment that can record at a higher sample rate? (And of course has better preamps than the zoom). I want to take myself fulltime so this isn't a case of spending money for the sake of it :)
Be nice to hear your thoughts, cheers!
