I did some sessions in 44.1, 48 and 96. It works great, and sounds fantastic. The CC1 is such a great upgrade in the studio, amazing!

After installing your CC1, I often catch myself thinking that I listen to 88.2 when in reality it is 44.1. Their difference used to be much larger, and both sound much better now.
