24 bit 192 kHz refers to the number of times the sound is chopped up into s=
amples. Each second of your recording is divided into 192,000 samples. This=
 has nothing to do with the frequency of the sounds being recorded.

The only way to record ultra-sound is to use a suitable hydrophone, or if o=
n land, a mike that go above the usual cut-off of 20 kHz.

That's my understanding of the situation, but I could be wrong.
