That can be a much valid point.  Everything boils down to what can be
distributed easily anyways.  Is there a significant difference when
sampling at 192,000 (jack max on this machine) and then having a final
mastering for CD purposes ?  Well, there will be more points to work
with, this is certain.  Does it make a difference ?  Will more
complexities of the guitar playing end up being actually felt, tidbits
that audiophiles can argue about for hours ?  Will it bring a somewhat
sense of a richer sound to the listener ?  Not sure that it is entirely
mathematics.  The notion of psychoacoustics was used in developing the
MP3 format as inherently there's more than math to music.  Will this
have an influence on the projects I make - most probably not, although
it is an interesting topic.
