Using 96 kHz or 44,1 kHz reverbs in 48 kHz project?

Post by dagovitsj » Mon Jan 28, 2013 12:33 am

Hi!
I'm usually working in 44,1 kHz, but right now I'm working with a mix in 48 kHz. I'm using VNXT's EMT140 (44,1 kHz) and EAR Room and Hall (96 kHz). But would it be better to run EAR Room and Hall in 44,1 kHz too or is there any sound/quality differences (or other things I should consider?) when I'm using a 44,1 kHz or 96 kHz lib in a project setting of 48 kHz?

Bottom line: is there any rule of thumb regarding this or what?

Cheers

I prefer the 44.1 to 48 conversion over the down-sampled 96khz presets. You should test it though- you may find the difference to be negligible.

Thanks, yr!
I'll do a test when I get some spare time.
