Actually you probaby don't.... but hey.... :)

but my computer won't let me go any higher than 44/16

Naughty computer. :) (Sorry couldn't resist that)

Go to n-track Preferences. Check you've got the right Audio device configured, then select the sampling frequency you want.

Then click on the little hammer under the recording VU meter and select one of the 24 bit options (you may find only one of them works... trial and error). You will, of course, need the 24bit version of n-track to do this.

HTH

Check the settings in your soundcard control panel first of all

In N track cliuck on the little hammer in the recording VU meter to bring up the box where you select 24 or 16 bit.

To select the sampling frequency (96K), go to File/settings/preferences on the first tab.

This assumes you have purchased a 24bit version of N track.

Ummm.... why would you want to do that?

I can understand 1 soundcard for audio and another for midi, but using a separate cad for recording and playback may introduce all osrts of latency and/or clock sync problems...

Is there any reason 1 card can't handle both?

i do it mainly because there aren't enough inputs/outputs on one card.  i'm useing an 'audiophile 2496'.  it has two right channels and two left channels.  i use two mics, i connect one to the left channels and one to the right channels.  maybe i need a soundcard with more I/O's?

Eyup!

Look under the advanced settings in Preferences. You can select multiple devices for input/output, or use one card for record and a different one for output if you want.

I'm not familiar with the Audiophile card (I just have a soundblaster Live!) but if it has two right and two left channels, that's four  inputs. You can use separate mics on each input, so you can record from four channels at a time yes?
I regularly record with my soundblaster card line input as two separate audio channels. Guitar on one, mic on the other.
Also, Richlum is correct when he says there will be timing issues if you try to record from separate cards. This will show up as a progressive lag between the channels, gradually becoming greater as the song progresses.
Much better to use one card if you can.

I dont see why the number of inputs you use changes the ability to use the output.

Do you need more inputs or more outputs or both? If you need more than you have then by all means a card with more will help the problem. But your last statement makes me wonder what tehreal problem you are trying to solve is.

is there anyway i could keep useing two mics with my audiophile, and also use it for an output as well?
That's the way sound cards work. So, yes you can use the inputs and output at the same time. That's pretty much what you have to do to keep the tracks syncing when recording. Using two different cards can cause sync issues if they aren't both slaved off of the same clock.
