Distorted audio is a form of audio that is produced when any form of deformation is present in the waveform output of the audio compared to its input. The output waveform and the sound of distorted audio differ from their input waveform and sound. In both recording and playback, distortion can occur at several points in the audio signal chain.
There are multiple reasons why distortion occurs, and different audios can be distorted due to various reasons. The most common cause of distortion is clipping. Clipping happens when an audio component's power supply voltage is insufficient to properly handle the signal. The other causes of distortion include an overloaded microphone or sound system, an overworked or overheated instrument that inputs a very hot signal in the sound system, using speakers to produce louder volume than they can handle, and the use of faulty equipment.
