44.1k, 16 bit

Recently the blogosphere has been buzzing again about sample rate and bit depth. For me there are only a few people who manage to make concise clarifications on the topic, please have a read:

Personally, I’m still looking for is a clear explanation of the benefit gained from higher sample rates and plugin processing. Accumulation errors are taking place, that’s a fact, so what are the real world implications?

For now, I’m sticking with 48k, 32 float wherever possible.
