I was just wondering if setting my soundcard's (X-Fi USB HD) default format to 96000hz instead of 48000hz would mess with the quality/positioning of in-game audio? I don't have any of the cards enhancements turned on (Surround/Crystalizer, etc.) because most games have stereo "surround" positioning programming into them, and the enhancements only mess it up or cause it to sound more "open".
Anyways, I've had my sound card set to 24bit 96000hz (for watching Blurays) and I was wondering if that settings was causing my games to be changed in any way. I'm pretty sure most games are recorded as 48000hz; but if my card is set to 96000 I'm always worried that it may mess with the designers intended positioning of the audio cues, or the overall "feel" of the atmosphere in the game. Does anyone know anything about this?
Any help is appreciated! :D Thankyou!
