Lightbulb details about sound quality and production standards missing in refill promos

When i am looking for new sounds i want to know a bit more about the fidelity than the current language.

stuff that would be appropriate would be the following:

"end to end fidelity assurance" meaning:
recorded at 192 kHz 24 bit stereo (noise floor -30 db est)
professional room treatments at a known studio

ten or more labeled velocity switchable layers
mastered at 32 bit 192 Khz
finalized at 24 bit 48 Khz for use in Reason

24bit has 144dB S/N and theres more chance this will sound worse than a straight 44.1/48k recording than better cause you have to downsample it afterwards instead of directly storing from the oversampled A/D result to 44.1/48k.

For "mastered at 32bit" you will have trouble to find any DAW that processes below 64bit internally and most mastering engineers like to use analog gear anyway.

I agree on the importance of velocity layers though

what i meant to say is that the audio interface should be at least at this
24/192khz level, as in the following link

64 bit internal is important but if it was not recorded using a quality then its garbage in garbage out ... ?

"24bit has 144dB S/N and theres more chance this will sound worse than a straight 44.1/48k recording than better cause you have to downsample it afterwards instead of directly storing from the oversampled A/D result to 44.1/48k."

where did you get this info ?

Lets say I studied the topic for a while
