The input gain matters too. Even a low frequency input at high gain will create harmonics above Nyquist.

Also, this is from u-he's URS on KVR:
"The problem is that the added harmonics in a signal chain add to each other. That is, a nonlinear process will also add harmonics to the already added ones from the previous process. So each time you double the samplerate all you get is one more plugin in the signal chain to end up with the same level of artifacts.

The best way to keep aliasing low is to bandlimit each single process in the chain. Thus deploying steep filters inbetween. 'tis the only way."
