If we mention any files or links in the YouTube video, click the link below to be taken to them.

Are 96khz and 192khz better? Sample rate is akin to camera frame rate, yes? So the higher the sample rate the better? Can sample rate in audio be compared with frame rate in film or video? The more samples the better? Not necessarily... and higher sample rates could be making your music sound more 'analogue' in a bad way!

As well as Mark playing with his new 55" iPad pro, in this video we explain sample rates, and present some basic science to help you make an informed decision as to what sample rate is best for you, as well as busting some common myths and misconceptions!
