About Digitized Sound

It helps to think of digitized sound as being analogous to digitized video.

Digitized sound actually is composed of a sequence of individual sound samples. The number of samples per second is called the sample rate and is very much like a video track’s frame rate. The more sound samples per second, the higher the quality of the resulting sound. More sound samples also take up more space on disk, however, and mean that more data needs to be processed during every second of playback. (As we mentioned when discussing video in Chapter 9, the amount of data that must be processed every second is called the data rate.)
