In a digital recorder or sampler, errors in the timing of sample acquisition due to rapid amplitude changes is called jitter (also known as Sample Offset Uncertainty). Jitter introduces some distortion and phase discrepancy into an audio signal. Higher frequencies are more susceptible to jitter than lower. In most modern gear, use of clocked buffers for digital data streams has minimized the effects of jitter.
