For a project where we are using sound recognition to playback a story off a person who died in the great water flood in 1953 I need to record the name at a sample rate of 16000 Hz. I’ve tried to use the ‘sr 16000′ message into the buffer~, but that results in a very slow recording where the voice sounds like a monster!
See http://www.deramp.nl go to ‘meer info’ and there is a you tube movie of an 3D impression.
Can somebody point me in the right direction!

Could you explain why? It doesn’t make sense and therefore needs explanation…
In general, your interface determines the sample rate, not a Max object…

Hey, you found it.

if one lives in utrecht it is a good idea to make a max patch about the great flood …
but seriously, there is no hardware which could play audio at 16 Khz samplingrate, so it is not exactly clear what you want to do.

not necessarily. degrade would give you all the aliasing of energy above 8k folding back. that will sound very different from recording at 44k and then downsampling with a good sample rate converter, or (if you can find hardware that still supports this SR) recording at 16k with a properly implemented AA filter.
it depends what is needed: a recording delivered (for whatever reason) at 16k (and 8 bit?) but still sounding as good as possible?
a “lo-fi” sound with lots of aliasing, distortion and noise, delivered in whatever SR is appropriate.
16k audio can sound better/cleaner/different from degrade at 1./44100.*16000.
