Why and when do people use resampling?

Thanks

Re-sampling is like 'freeze' on tracks for DAWs. It's about combining a more complex sound into a single sample to conserve resources.

I thought re-sampling was what you did when you wanted to change the sample rate of some digital audio. Never knew it was also the term for bouncing down a group of tracks.

Ah could be - I'm old school so to me 'resampling' is what you did on an Emulator II or EPS16+ ...

I would have called that rendering.

Which is all why I asked to what context the OP was referring, so we knew what he was referring to.

You sample rate convert material when it is at a different sample rate to the rate you want to work at, or when it is at the same rate but running asynchronously.

Many plug-in effects processors sample rate convert in order to enhance the precision of the processing, most up-sampling to a double rate and then down-sampling again afterwards to the native rate of the DAW session.

Some ADCs and DACs use SRCs as part of their jitter isolation process, performing the actual domain conversion to a locally generated clock and using the SRC to convert the signal to or from the external rate.
