sampling rate

[′sam·pliŋ ‚rāt]

The easy way to do this is to compute the sample frequency for each test frequency by attempting to keep the fundamental frequency falling in the same place in the spectrum.
If the Arb and the ACI run at the same sample frequency, the ACI could capture the noise waveform on the edges on one run and on the flat spots during other runs.
