The Science of Sample Rates (When Higher Is Better — And When It Isn’t)

The Science of Sample Rates (When Higher Is Better — And When It Isn’t) by Justin Colletti.


Interesting article identifying where the errors actually creep into digital recording.  Distills a lot of the fact and history of sampling challenges very well.  As a (semi) reformed studio rat and computer music geek, I really enjoyed his descriptions of where things start to go haywire.  The idea of "Optimal" sampling rate provides a nice contrast to the constant more-faster-cheaper trend of technology.
