Re: Sampling frequency
Dear Claire, Ajith,
I would use other terms:
1. If the sample rate is *adjusted* without changing the
samples itself, pitch and duration will be affected.
2. If the sample rate is *converted* (resampling/sample rate
conversion), neither pitch nor duration will be affected.
However, the quality will (at least theoretically) decrease
due to the filter/interpolation algorithm used.
The quality of any audio sample will never increase when
converting to higher sample rates than the original sample
rate. However, higher sample rates are often used in the case
of non-linear processing (i.e. distortion, tube emulation,
etc.) when high frequency content is generated.
