I can't seem to find an answer anywhere to this just by searching. I'm trying to understand samplerate more thoroughly. I know 44000 samples per second means that the highest frequency that can be recorded is 22000 hz but what is each sample? Does it mean there is a constant 44000 snippets of sound making up every sound each second? Or is this just the limit of the number of cycles any waveform can have? Is each sample a waveform?
