Unformatted text preview: To reproduce the sound, the stored voltage values are used to create a new continuous electronic signal. The assumption is that the voltage levels in the original signal changed evenly between one stored voltage value and the next. If enough samples are taken in a short period of time, that assumption is reasonable. But certainly the process of sampling can lose information, as shown in Figure 3.8. In general, a sampling rate of around 40,000 times per second is enough to create a reasonable sound reproduction. If the sampling rate is much...
