Audio artifacts

« Back to Glossary Index

Recording: Any undesired sound that can be picked up during the recording, either from the sound source or generated by the recording itself, and which will be audible to listeners during playback. Examples of artifacts picked up from the recording source can be temporal or spectral, or can be an occlusion (for example, if the user accidentally blocks the microphone with their hand).

Playback: Any undesired sound that is audible to listeners during playback which is not present in the original recording and which disturbs the user experience.
