sound card will not support 88.2 khz

Specs: Windows XP
I am using ASIO4ALL and trying to use Mr. Sax T to play tenor sax with a wind controller and laptop. The sound card REALTEK AC'97(chip)only goes up to 48 khz. Can I use an external sound card to give me 88.2 khz? What one would you recommend for portability (small; used on stage) with great sound also and maybe effects?

You mean the sampling rate right? I'n not sure if something that high is necessary since the actual reproducable frequency is about half the sampling rate. So you're talking about 44 khz coming out of your speakers. That's way beyond the range of human hearing and will only drive the neighborhood dogs nuts, even assuming your speakers will reproduce that frequency. I don't think that high a sampling rate will matter when dealing with lower frequencies.

But I guess those sampling rates are possible. This fellow was looking at some sound cards that sampled even higher:

Those were sound cards and wouldn't do much good with your laptop but maybe X86's link will help.

Have a look at some of the M-Audio products. It is pro gear made exactly for what you are trying to accomplish.

This one goes up to 24 bit 96kHz sampling.
