Ah ok i got it
The final downsampling from 88.2 -to-> 44.1 must be done before or after the limiter/ditering?
For anyone wondering about this stuff... for best quality (despite the fact that DAWs like ableton will allow you to just drop it in) convert any audio files in your projects all to the same sample rate. This would be your working sample rate. For most people that's 44.1khz, but a lot of the top pros work at higher sample rates like 88.2k or 96k. I prefer 88.2k as there are occasional quality benefits to working at an even multiple of your final product. 96k was more intended for video application where 48k is final format. SRCs (sample rate conversions) are unrelated to dither rules as dithering relates to bit depth conversions. You only dither at the point you are stepping down to a lower bit depth. So for example lets say your track is mastered and no other processing is to be done on it.. you'd SRC to 44.1khz and from there export your to the final 16bit format with dithering applied. So in regard to your final limiter yes I'd definitely do that at 88.2k as it'll perform better. The final 2 stages should be SRC then dither to 16bit.
