Sorry but this is a bad example .....
This example has nothing to do with the sample rate of the sample 
(sound) but with the method used to implement a digital delay effect.  
In the case you are exposing you will certainly have the same effect 
with a initial 24/48 sample rate up-sampled to 96 just to process the 
effect. This method was used by Steinberg in one of their VST EQ plugin 
in order to improved the response of the EQ in high frequency.
You don't need 24/96 to have those sound, you need better digital effect 
processors !!!
