    Is there any way to get Audio Midi Setup to output the 88KHz sampling rate to analog outs? I'm sure the capability is there in Core Audio.

    Got a 2.8GHz Core 2 Duo iMac, BTW.

    88 KHz? What an odd sampling rate. Why not use 96 KHz instead? That's supported.

    It's not odd -- it's exactly double the Redbook standard of 44.1. To be specific, it's 88.2 KHz. It's much less computation-intensive for computers to convert multiples of 88.2KHz files to Redbook than 96Khz.

    I figured it was actually 88.2. That said, I've never seen any audio program that supports it.

    88.2k should show up as an option in Audio Midi Setup _if_ the audio device supports it, and various software programs, including Logic, Logic Express, and Sound Studio, will support a 88.2k sample rate.
