00:17 = What is Sample Rate? Bit Resolution?
01:34 = Downsample
03:49 = Bit Reduction
Ableton Live’s Redux "reduces an audio signal’s sample rate and bit resolution” - Ableton Reference Manual
To understand this a little bit better, let’s briefly explain what sample rate and bit resolution actually mean.
Sample Rate refers to the number of times an analog audio signal is digitally represented per second. Bit Resolution, or bit depth, refers to available range at which an analog audio signal’s amplitude is digitally stored and represented. But with Redux, the name of the game is reducing sample rate and bit resolution so we can degrade our audio.
Thanks for watching this Ableton tutorial. Good luck with your Redux endeavors! And don't forget to RTFM!
