  Sampling (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sampling is also possible with tape loops or with vinyl records on a phonograph.
Ironically, the sample in question had been so distorted as to be virtually unrecognisable, and SAW didn't realize their record had been used until they heard co-producer Dave Dorrell mention it in a radio interview.
In the user interface of application software, samples are often used as startup sounds which are heard in conjunction with a splash screen or as audio cues to alert the user to events such as the receipt of email or the recording of a transaction, for example.

 Digital sampling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Digital sampling, PCM sampling, or just sampling is the process of representing a signal waveform as a series of numbers which represent the measurement of the sound's amplitude, taken at regular intervals.
Sampling produces a series of values which may be represented in various ways - the output from the process can be a series of analog pulses (Pulse-height modulation) or a series of fixed amplitude pulses (Pulse position modulation or Pulse-width modulation.
In digital sampling, the accuracy of the resulting waveform is also affected by the stepwise nature of the digitising process, resulting in what is referred to as 'Quantisation error.

 Digital Sampling, the Mimetic Impulse and Appropriation in Modern Art   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19)
While a sample is a temporal sonic event, it is also an image, an object--fluid as binary information and as a sound, and fixed in the medium of a compact disc, sampling instrument or the hard drive of a computer.
Samples of ambient stage, radio and field recordings were combined using indeterminate chance operations as the basis for the composition; all the sounds of life become music.
Sampling, and what is sampled (prerecorded music, nature sounds, noise, etc.) is linked to the long-standing artistic tradition of mimesis and to the Modernist idea of appropriation.

 Digital Sampling
Sampled artists may also have a claim for unfair competition if their voice or "persona" are used without permission.
To legally sample a song, it is necessary to obtain permission from the copyright holder of the sound recording (usually the record company) and the copyright holder of the composition (usually the song's publisher).
While a sample of 1 or 2 notes is OK only if it is taken from a non-essential or commonly used phrase, another sample of 1 or 2 notes may be infringing if taken from a musically significant part of a song.

 Digital sampling instrument - Patent 4987600
Digital sampling keyboard instruments are known in the prior art to provide accurate generation of virtually any sound, such as piano, (violin or any other type of sound, for that matter).
Another approach is to oversample the digital samples, which in effect divides up a pitch period (such as a pitch period of 50 microseconds) into a smaller number of subperiods.
The instrument also includes means for accessing the digital sound data within a single clock cycle which is one-fourth as long as a memory cycle, and means for outputting the accessed digital data to, for example, a digital to analog converter means for generating an audio sound within the single clock cycle.

 Digital Sampling
I finally figured out that my mikes were not adequate and new ones were too expensive, the sampling rates on the Ensoniq were too low and the filters not sharp enough to prevent aliasing in the samples at their sampling rates.
I had a recent experience with a virgin Wulritzer Dulciana where the samples of 4 of the pipes I had chosen had a 3rd harmonic content that was greater than the fundamental.
The differences I have seen in the samples seem to be a function of the length of the pipe.

 Digital Sampling   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19)
We've learned so far that sound in it's natural form is continuous since it is composed of waves of changing air pressure, yet since we are talking about digital audio, we must understand methods for the discretization of sound so that we may store it in a digital form.
The transform takes n samples and considers them as one period of a periodic signal, and since periodic signals can be broken down into a harmonic set of waves each with individual amplitudes and phases, this is what we do.
We consider the n samples in our time domain and treat each as a harmonic that is as well one element of the space we are to transform to.

In digital audio, the purpose of binary numbers is to express the values of samples which represent analog sound velocity or pressure waveforms.
While sampling technology has been available for a long time, only in the last decade has the speed of computers and availability of cost effective hardware made sampling with digital recorders the standard in the industry.
High sample rates are better at capturing high frequency waveforms, but if you are sampling lower frequency sounds, such as kick drum, bass, etc., you might consider sampling at the lower rate to save hard drive space.

The job of the DAC is to connect the samples together end to end in order to produce a smooth representation of the musical waveform, sort of like connecting the dots to make a picture in the coloring books we used as children.
Currently, when you watch a movie on laserdisc, the stereo sound is carried on the digital sound tracks, while the two analog sound tracks multiplexed with the video are used for commentary by actors and the director of the movie, or simply a duplication of the sound from the digital tracks.
Dolby Digital is referred to as a 5.1 channel system, which means that there are 5 discrete (separate) channels of surround sound and 1 channel for a subwoofer or possibly special effects.

 OLYMPUS MIC-D: Interactive Java Tutorial - Digital Image Sampling Frequency   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19)
The spatial resolution of a digital image is determined by the distance between pixels, known as the sampling interval, and the accuracy of the digitizing device.
According to Shannon's sampling theorem, in order to preserve the spatial resolution of the original image, the digitizing device must utilize a sampling interval that is no greater than one-half the size of the smallest resolvable feature of the optical image.
A digitizer that samples 512 points per horizontal scan line would then have a maximum horizontal field of view of approximately 56 micrometers (512 x 0.11 micrometers).

 Analog to Digital Conversion: Sampling   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19)
There are two factors which determine the accuracy with which the digital sequence of values captures the original continuous signal: the maximum rate at which we sample, and the number of bits used in each sample.
The raw (un-compressed) digital data rate associated with a signal then is simply the sample rate times the number of bits per sample.
When the sample rate is much lower than the highest frequency in the continuosu signal, a band-pass filter which only allows frequencies in the range actually needed, is usally put before the sampling circuit.

 Olympus Microscopy Resource Center: Digital Image Processing - Digital Image Sampling Frequency - Interactive Java ...
In cases where pixels generated by the digitizer are spaced too far apart compared to the high-frequency detail of the image, this specimen information may then masquerade as lower spatial frequency image features that are not actually present in the specimen.
Aliasing is a peculiar phenomenon that occurs abruptly when the sampling frequency drops below a critical level and can result in the generation of moiré patterns in specimens with regularly spaced, repetitive patterns, such as those seen in the diatoms illustrated in Figure 1.
In most cases aliasing suddenly develops at a sampling frequency less than or equal to about 1.5 times that of the repetitive, high-frequency pattern, as observed in the figure.
