Sounds above the Nyquist limit (in this case 4000 Hz) will seem to fold back into the allowed range. For example, a tone 100 Hz above the limit will appear as a phantom tone 100 Hz below it. So a frequency of 4100 will seem to appear at 3900, one at 4200 will appear at 3800, and so on. This is called 'aliasing' or 'folding'. The apparent 3900 tone is an ...

The result of using a sampling rate that is too low for your program material is easiest understood with a graph. If the blue wave is the actual sound you are attempting to record, in your example, say, 4.5KHz, with a sample rate of 8,000 samples/sec, the signal can only be recreated with the information that was recorded (in red). So to answer your ...

Interesting question. First, here's a question for you: can your supercomputer actually calculate and render, in real time, an animated zoom on images so complex? My guess (only a guess) is that it will need more than 1/30 sec. to complete each frame (let's assume 30 frames per second as a minimal frame rate in which to achieve a smooth zoom). If that's the ...
