Native versions of PT have always used floating point, so the headroom advantages of floating point for real time processing and summing have always been there. The difference is that you can now track to 32 bit files and make sessions out of them. This does offer a few advantages for certain types of processing (like rendering). As for "increasing the sample rate during mixdown," if you already tracked at 44.1, I have never personally heard any improvement from upsampling the final stereo mix. The reason I think that option is there is to give you flexibility if you need to deliver a master that is at a higher sample rate. You didn't need to wait until PT10 to try this, by the way. Upsampling was previously available using "export selected as files."
Pro Tools recently switched to 32-bit float. I can now run sessions at a 32-bit float instead of 24 bits, and this sounds better to me. Recently, I noticed that I also have the option of increasing the sample rate as well during mixdown. My question is: If I track everything at 44.1kHz, is there any upside to mixing down at a higher sampling rate, like 88.2kHz or 192kHz, as I know can with Pro Tools?
