Sampling Rate?

The Sampling Rate is a metadata element that is typically found in audio and video files. In both cases, it is utilized for the audio data in the file.

It is important to note that the Sampling Rate plays a significant part in recording sounds for music, telecommunications, and much more. It refers to the number of samples that are recorded per second in the audio stream or sound. The Sampling Rate determines the actual representation or audio. The higher the sampling rate is, the more precise your digital rendition of recorded sound is when compared with that of what the sound originates from.

The human ear can hear sounds using an average Sampling Rate of 20000 Hz, or 20 kHz. But, most recordings, including those made for films or CDs, as well as recorded by microphones, are in between the 44100- 192000 range. The most frequently used sampling rates are:

  • 44100 Hz 44.1 kHz
  • 48000 Hz, or 48 kHz
  • 8200 Hz or 88.2 KHz
  • 96000 Hz or 96000 Hz or
  • 19200 Hz, also known as 19200 Hz or
