Wav sample rate algorithms

Is there any algorithms for changing sample rate of wav wave?
(not only linear algorithm)


  • i found this in program called ffe (file format encyclopedia).

    hopefully i helped

    Popular sampling rates

    Some sampling rates are more popular than others, for various reasons.
    Some recording hardware is restricted to (approximations of) some of
    these rates, some playback hardware has direct support for some. The
    popularity of divisors of common rates can be explained by the
    simplicity of clock frequency dividing circuits :-).

    Samples/sec Description

    5500 One fourth of the Mac sampling rate (rarely seen).

    7333 One third of the Mac sampling rate (rarely seen).

    8000 Exactly 8000 samples/sec is a telephony standard that
    goes together with U-LAW (and also A-LAW) encoding.
    Some systems use an slightly different rate; in
    particular, the NeXT workstation uses 8012.8210513,
    apparently the rate used by Telco CODECs.

    11 k Either 11025, a quarter of the CD sampling rate,
    or half the Mac sampling rate (perhaps the most
    popular rate on the Mac).

    16000 Used by, e.g. the G.722 compression standard.

    18.9 k CD-ROM/XA standard.

    22 k Either 22050, half the CD sampling rate, or the Mac
    rate; the latter is precisely 22254.545454545454 but
    usually misquoted as 22000. (Historical note:
    22254.5454... was the horizontal scan rate of the
    original 128k Mac.)

    32000 Used in digital radio, NICAM (Nearly-Instantaneous
    Companded Audio Multiplex [IBA/BREMA/BBC]) and other
    TV work, at least in the UK; also long play DAT and
    Japanese HDTV.

    37.8 k CD-ROM/XA standard for higher quality.

    44056 This weird rate is used by professional audio
    equipment to fit an integral number of samples in a
    video frame.

    44100 The CD sampling rate. (DAT players recording
    digitally from CD also use this rate.)

    48000 The DAT (Digital Audio Tape) sampling rate for
    domestic use.

    Files samples on SoundBlaster hardware have sampling rates that are
    divisors of 1000000.

    While professinal musicians disagree, most people don't have a problem
    if recorded sound is played at a slightly different rate, say, 1-2%.
    On the other hand, if recorded data is being fed into a playback
    device in real time (say, over a network), even the smallest
    difference in sampling rate can frustrate the buffering scheme used...

    There may be an emerging tendency to standardize on only a few
    sampling rates and encoding styles, even if the file formats may
    differ. The suggested rates and styles are:

    rate (samp/sec) style mono/stereo

    8000 8-bit U-LAW mono
    22050 8-bit linear unsigned mono and stereo
    44100 16-bit linear signed mono and stereo
