mixdown medium/sample rates

hey howie,

what are the majority of big name mixers sending you format wise? 96k wavs? tape? any DSD or 1bit stuff?

also, from a preference standard, for modern standards and sonic fidelity, which do you prefer?

I get everything. 96kz, 44.1khz, 48khz.

DSD is nonexistent. Tape comes in about one out of ten projects.

What I've noticed is that the sample rate doesn't matter. A good mix sounds great at 16bit 44.1khz and 96khz won't save a bad mix.

So my point is that sample rates are overrated.
