22k vs. 44k sound

aside from 22k whats the difference? Will I hear an observable quality difference?

What about as it relates to smartsound music?

Thanks,

KIM

you'll absolutely hear an observable difference, particularly on any decent set of speakers. Your high end will be pretty grainy, bottom end will be mushy. think of it as a 72 dpi image vs a 300 dpi image that has been zoomed by 150%

on the music side of things, sometimes we deliberately undersample at low bitrates and sample rates. This is really popular with rap music, to sample drum loops at a low rate to get a grainy, yucky feel, and then transition from the yuck to clean as an effect. That sort of thing is usually undersampled at 2 bit/16K

I woudl only use a lower sample rate if i was intending to overdub audio on teh camera itself.. but as its more efficient doing it in post i usually dont go near 22k..
