As an experienced sound engineer, i would say 48khz/24bit is an optimal resolution. And here are are several reasons: 1. most video codecs encode audio data in 48/24 or 48/16 (Dolby Digital for example). 2. Discrete waves summing issue: Higher resolution is better for mixing, because mixing a lot of tracks in low resolution (44.1/16) causes digital noises. In this case, studio standard 24/96 is the best. 3. Downsampling is always better than upsampling, because of interpolation. Of course, when we are talking about a few tracks and a good sound software, there are no problems with 44.1/16. This resolution completele covers potential of the human perception. But high resolution is always better than low By the way, studios i work for ask me to mix all data in 48/24.
