    I never clip my faders … I ment when running stuff thru vst’s … would it matter if they were all red lining at 32bit if the final faders were not clipping, or have I totaly misunderstood that part of 32 bit floating point?

    Yes it will matter – if you are redlining any part of the signal chain it will distort whether…[Read more]

  • Quite surprised (and chuffed) here – I thought my hearing was fecked in one ear and deteriorating in the other (a result of bad in-club rigs 20 years ago – I remember noticing I couldn’t hear as much when mixing a band one time, and put it down to distorted nasty speakers that I had been working with the year before – I started wearing ear…[Read more]

    does floating point (32 bit float) mean that you can clip in the digital domain and as long as the mixer faders aren’t clipping it’ll not effect the sound? (I read that somewhere but am not sure how true it is).

    32 bit float just means the resolution is 32bit and uses floating point representation (in accordance with IEEE…[Read more]

    Ah ok, I read that it has some kind of filter (LP,HP and/or BP/BR within it iirc) … and assumed it was placed in the signal path. I guess as this could apply to a general electronic signal, that they were purely refering to blocking electronic frequencies as opposed to specific sound waves (I know they are the same thing…

  • noname replied to the topic Sample rates in the forum Sound Engineering 7 years, 10 months ago

    Aye – pretty much what cheeseweasel and Daftfader said. When I talked about having to use anti aliasing when you downsample – ie from 48K to 44.1K or such it is for the reason explained above (anti aliasing attempts to remove any aliasing errors by filtering everything above the Nyquist limit) Another process called interpolation is used to make…[Read more]

    I’ve often wondered what an MP3 would sound like to a dog or cat (in fact I remember asking this question in a lecture once and people thought I was taking the piss), as the way MP3 works is by exploiting redundancy in the human auditory system by using the masking effect. This requires a virtual model of the human ear…

  • noname replied to the topic Sound leakage? in the forum Sound Engineering 9 years ago

    If you can find something solid to aim the direct dispersion from the speakers (ie what comes out of the front of the boxes) you will get much less leakage – we tend to use hills (of which there many in Scotland), and you mentioned it being a foresty/hilly area. The main thing is to get something solid between the speakers and any place where the…[Read more]

    Get a roll of 20amp mains cable and wire them yourself – speakons are the simplest of all cables to make – no soldering necessary (unless you want to tin the ends), you just insert the cable and screw it down. You can get the plugs for £3.74 inc VAT and 100m reel of arctic grade 20amp cable for £89.12 inc VAT which is PVC insulated and sheathed, v…[Read more]

  • noname replied to the topic Synths + Midi Controllers in the forum Music 9 years, 3 months ago

    You can make a hardware synth do this, but you need to use the MIDI learn function quite a lot, and it takes a while to get it all working right…

    But yeah – as long as the keyboard speaks MIDI (and pretty much all do nowadays) you can make cubase respond to it. As far as I remember you can also get downloadable “instrument” MIDI control…[Read more]

    Scoops were traditionally what all the Jamaican dub sound systems used for bass. They do look fucking cool, but tend to sound sluggish, so aren’t great for music with fast bass like house and techno.
