I create the 44.1 file for playback. For individual clients, I often
provide a CD for playback of the transfer(s). Institutions usually
prefer the 44.1 file for access copies. But, I will provide the two
simultaneous transfers at any sample rate the client specs. 48K is often
used for spoken word. 44.1 is not only not an archival format but a
dying one at that since it is unique to the Compact Disk.

>> As stated on my website (http://www.baileyzone.net/services.htm) I only perform restoration processing on a copy of the 44.1 file. The original transfers are left intact. Since I do transfers for institutions as well as individuals, the original transfers are used for archival. The process of creating two files simultaneously takes no extra time and there is no extra cost involved.
