personally, i would use my ears!
but as a general rule it’s probably not worth going below 20hz, unless u make beats for ur cat / dog / bat / whale / dolphin.
and likewise not much point in going above 22Khz…
unless ur uber anal and want to process sounds beyond the human hearing range – the rationale being that sounds beyond our hearing range have an inpact on what we actually hear…
and finally, filters respond differently according to their input… (for instance) why would u want to filter frequencies which dont exist in the input signal!?
