Definitions Edit

information that describes specific attributes of an audio object. For a physical source object, some of these attributes might include material composition, dimensions, audio signal characteristics, and condition. For a digital file, they might include sampling rate, bit depth, data encoding type, checksum value, and other information necessary to reproduce the information.[2]
