Why doesn't Input Monitoring work at 88.2/96kHz?

Input Monitoring will only work at 88.2/96kHz if your output device supports these sample rates. If you are using an Apogee MiC 96k or a Sennheiser ClipMic, you can record at 88.2/96kHz, but you may not be able to use input monitoring if you’re using the iDevice’s built-in output or Apple ear-buds since both of these output devices only support up to 48kHz.

The recorded file will still be at 88.2/96kHz, but when you play it back you will be listening at 44.1/48kHz. If you would like to use input monitoring while recording, you can use a lower sample-rate, such as 44.1 or 48kHz or if you would like to stay at a higher sample-rate, you can use an input/output device that supports 88.2/96kHz on input and output, such as the Apogee ONE for iPad & Mac or the Apogee Duet for iPad & Mac.
