I use a Samson C03U USB mic that has a 48khz sampling rate (not manually adjustable as far as I know), but have set Audacity to record at a 44.1khz sampling rate (mono-only for spoken voice). How are the two rates reconciled? Does Audacity re-sample the mic output to get 44.1khz input? Does the mic automatically change its output sampling rate to 44.1khz? Or what?
Audacity recordings sound OK so far so it seems that something is working right, but I’d like to understand better what’s happening.
