I was under the impression that spdif i/o is 48khz only too. How does this
circumvent the resampling?
If you were sampling on the live card at 48khz to begin with, you wouldn't
be resampling either.
I do know that all the internal mixing is at 48khz, which means that even
the sp-dif is configurable to 44.1, you're >still< resampling.
One resample isn't exactly going to kill your song - I bet no-one could
the difference, especially through the SB live's A/D/A.
