Setting the SAMPLE RATE

The sample rate of the wave (sound) is determined by a parameter in the Output operator. To set the SAMPLE RATE of your patch:

Open the patch you created in Tutorial2.

  • Double click on the Output operator.
  • You should see this window: [Don't forget that you set the Output to MEMORY, not to AIFF File.]

           Note the value in the Rate field.

      The value in the Rate field sets the SAMPLE RATE of the sound. Standard SAMPLE RATES include:

      44100 Hz (standard CD sample rate)

      Unless directed to do so, it would be advisable to keep the sample Rate at 22050 Hz.
