Simple Question about Sampling Rates
on Jun 21, 2008 at 4:14:19 pm

Hi all,

Does converting a song from 44.1Khz to 48 Khz physically change the length of a song?

Thanks,
matt

Hi Matt,

No, converting your song from 44.1 to 48 khz will "not" change the length of your song. If it was originally recorded at 48 khz however, it will give you a slight increase in sound fidelity.

If you have hardware in which the sampling rate can be manually changed (Pro Tools) it is possible to have a playback "speed" slower or faster. Say you recorded an audio file at 48khz, bounced it to a file with a setting of 44.1, then imported it back to the original project (which would still have hardware clocked at 48khz), it would playback faster - and thus - shorter.

Most hardware devices will automatically detect the sampling rate and set the playback rate accordingly.
