Audio, or in terms of signal processing, an audio signal is an analog or digital representation of sound, typically as an electrical voltage.

Audio signals may be synthesized directly, or may originate at a transducer such as a microphone, musical instrument pickup, phonograph cartridge, or tape head. Loudspeakers or headphones convert an electrical audio signal into sound. Digital representations of audio signals exist in a variety of formats.
