Clipping is a form of waveform distortion. When an amplifier is pushed beyond it’s maximum limit, it goes into overdrive. The overdriven signal causes the amplifier to attempt to produce a output voltage beyond its capability, which is when clipping occurs. https://producelikeapro.com/blog/audio-clipping/

The fact that nobody likes what happens when a project is clipping, gives us even more reason to understand what causes it and how to prevent it from happening. Can you imagine what a song would sound like if all of its tracks were clipping? Not only would it be inaudible, but prolonged playing on speakers would cause them to overheat. I plan to elaborate in deeper detail about this subject, but for now, I want to hear from you. Let me know what you think is a cause for clipping. Let’s get a good conversation going.
