Chapter 8. Using Sound > Preparing Sounds for Flash

Preparing Sounds for Flash

To be able to reproduce sound, sound waves are sampled. Sampling is a process of splicing sound waves into increments—sound bites—and reproducing those increments, or samples, as closely as possible, as shown in Figure 8.2. The number of samples captured per second is known as the sampling rate and is measured in hertz (Hz).
