Sure, its totally possible to make patches with samples work at any  
sample rate, but usually this is a silly exercise in futility.  For  
example, in most of my sound design work, the sound is going to end up  
as a 48k audio track to a video.  Why would I work at anything but  
48k?  Sound cards have only a small set of supported sampling rates,  
MP3s/etc. mostly use one sampling rate, etc.



If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.
