I was working with a song in 96000 sample rate and suddenly the computer tells me that it is to slow to keep playing the song. I was kind of sad because I spend really much money on this computer. I'm watching my computers cpu and its only working on 20-30 % when I play the song but Reasons DSP meter is around 50 %. If I go down to 44100 sample rate I would probably be able to work with it but what benefits are there to be working in Higher sample rates? When the song is finished and it goes out on a cd or in Itunes it is bounced down to 44100 anyway.
So I would like some input on why it is better to work with higher sample rate. What do I gain in working at higher sample rates?
