The sampling period is the time difference between two consecutive samples in a Sound. It is the inverse of the sampling frequency. For example: if the sampling frequency is 44100 Hz, the sampling period is 1/44100 = 2.2675736961451248e-05 seconds: the samples are spaced approximately 23 microseconds apart.
