What is oversampling?

In music production, oversampling refers to a technique in which the original audio signal is sampled at a higher sampling rate than required for the final output format.

Oversampling is often used in digital audio processors such as equalizers, filters or effects applied. This can improve audio quality, especially when processing high frequency signals or reducing aliasing artifacts. It can help increase sound quality by capturing the signal more accurately. The higher internal sample rate allows for more precise calculations and better filtering before reducing the audio signal to the final sample rate. This helps improve audio quality and minimize unwanted artifacts. In summary, oversampling is upsampling, editing and downsampling.
