Hi guys, I'm new to this site as well as the audio engineering scene. :biggrin: I had hope that I could come to this forum for help and guidance so first and foremost, I want to thank whomever gives me advice here and there. So on to the question, if I wanted a snapshot of a sound wave would my sample rate have to be higher or lower? I'm guessing when recording it should be higher to eliminate the Nyquist Frequencies? :smile: If I'm wrong, why? If the sound is sampled at a lower rate than that of the original sound, how does that affect the sample? Thanks agaiN!!!
