Understanding sample rate in Steinberg driver

Post by Dewo »

Hi,

I actually know what sample rate is but there is something i can't get through.

Is the sample rate option in Steinberg driver only for recording or does it also affect the heaphone output ?
I mean, if I, let's say, configure the option to 44.1 kHz and I start to listen something (with a headphone connected to the audio interface) that have been encoded in 92Khz, will the DAC of the audio interface work with the 92kHz or will it work with a "downgraded" version at 44.1kHz ?

(Sorry for my bad english, it's not my native language but I hope it's understandable :))

The whole interface internally works in the samplerate it is set to.
