On a basic level, the higher the bit depth and sample rate of an audio interface, the better the sound quality. A good analogy is with digital photos – a low resolution leads to a more grainy and less clear image. The same is true of audio – low bit depth and sample rate lead to a grainy and less clear sound, meaning it is difficult or impossible to hear the subtle nuances that make a great recording pleasurable to listen to.
Furthermore, the higher the bit depth and sample rate that you record at, the more “future-proof” your recordings will be; as consumer hi-fi equipment improves in quality, your productions will not be left behind.
