Bit-rate reduction is one of many forms of compression.

22.05kHz. The phenomenon is called 'aliasing'.

| They're not "compressed" to remove this; it's simply a physical
| impossibility to record a higher sampling rate than that.

Errors aside, how does this contradict anything I wrote? Data loss,
bit-rate reduction, lossy compression, whatever you want to call it, it
ammounts to the same thing. And why are we still discussing this on the
Newton mailing list?
