We’re having a house built and I can’t wait to get out of this temporary location we’re in. It’s a challenge to record video here. Our house is in the early stages of construction and I call it the stick house since it’s framed but that’s about it. I made a short video of the new recording room I’ll have one day and I wanted to share it with you.

Let’s talk Audacity sample rates and bit depth. What is a sample rate? What am I sampling and why? What is bit depth? What’s the relationship between sample rate and bit depth? Why are there sample rates displayed in each track and a project sample rate in the lower left corner of the screen? What’s the difference and do they have to match? Where do I set the default sample rate in Audacity?
