Along with Paul pointing out that ADAT CAN do 44.1, saying that 44.1
recording will never be used for Pro-Audio is also misinformation.  If you
are going to CD only, it removes the need to do a sample rate conversion,
which obviously means less noise, and while there may certainly be some
differences in audio quality, some people believe the difference from said
conversion is greater than the difference in audio quality form 44.1 vs 96,

Not to mention that most sessions I find online that I give to my students
for assignments are still exported stems at 44.1 so obviously I am not the
only one that still uses it professionally.
