Clarity vs Fidelity, by Dan Shanefield

Here's a Microsoft Excel '97 workbook file by John S. Allen which demonstrates 44.1 kHz sampling of a 21 kHz signal. 

This Excel workbook accompanies John's to J. Peter Moncrieff's letter in the BAS Speaker, Volume 22, Number 5/6. 

The workbook calculates 20 points for each sampling interval: one point every 1/882,000 second. Sample times are indicated in the calculation worksheet by rows with green backgrounds. In the graphs, points between the calculated ones are plotted using Excel's smoothed line interpolation.   Excel graphs display rather poorly on a computer screen, but they print out very nicely.
