But all that can still be done at 44.1/48, it is only
the final sample multiplication that needs its inputs
band limited and thus potentially needs the upsampler.

But that breaks the ability to use the vectorisation
capability of modern compilers and besides the call
and return overhead will end up costing as much as the
We seem to be discussing two separate problems here,
aliasing in the gain cell and real 'audio' peak
discovery, they are peripherally related byt are not
the same thing.
