Re: Sine energy experiment (Sound Design / Master)

Can you provide an example? So i can really see/hear what you are doing. Okay, here's a flat noise example. I used 10 bands, each having equal amount of energy. The hard splits are quite audible to me, so rather 1/3rd octave splits will be smooth enough. In the past, I decided to set a loudness sta...

Re: Have Daw's Reached Their Limit?

Not even close - and I don't even have to read more than the title to say that. Care to elaborate? Whenever something seems to be pushed to the limit, something new pops up - only a matter of time. Plus people have tons of ideas and requests that aren't made yet (or seems to be impossible at the mo...

Reason 2.5 Demo Music(ian) "Unknown Source"

Not long ago, a lot of demo songs were posted from version 1.0 up to 4 or 5 I think. I came across some typical 2000's trance, but the nifty type, more exactly Realization by Unknown Source. Now, the name is a bit difficult to search; dunno if this artist still goes by the same name, or where we can...

Re: Amateur needs help with Reason

I'll let you, too know that I'm working on a new mastering standard, I just have to beg people to be more open for it, first, and give it a try. xD It will make things a lot easier.

Re: Preparing for Vinyl

I'm sure Vinyl kept engineers on their toes back in the day though as their mixes had to be very on point to keep the record from sounding horrible. I learned a lot from analyzing the whole process, practicing and preparing alone - mostly learned things we should definitely not do. That's how I lef...

Not trying to take away your fun here, just trying to point you in the right direction to do the groundwork that may end up saving you a lot of time.

Re: Sine energy experiment (Sound Design / Master)

So, I had a bit more difficulties, since I earlier had some problems to solve with Linear Phase frequency band splitting. When it comes to super accuracy, it can pre-echo and ring really badly. However, with some gating or cutting and general engineering tricks, those artifacts can be overcome. Not ...

Re: Izotope Ozone - how to master with plug-ins?

Rendering your song can be a good idea when it comes to efficient CPU and RAM usage. It's 2018, not 1981, so as long as you don't clip, you should be fine, so no need for these headrooms these days in the digital domain. Only use something when you need it, don't 'force' mastering. So, know what you...

Two words: Fletcher and Munson... Can you tell me how wide the difference is between different listeners? If Fletcher/Munson is the average (you don’t mention F/M in any of these conversations, btw), what is the deviation? That’s where I would start if I was going to test a theory such as yours. Me...

Re: Sine energy experiment (Sound Design / Master)

A simple flat spectrum on its own is still not enough, cause the system and our hearing still changes the final curve we hear. I honestly don’t believe that’s true - what evidence can you present to back up that claim? Years of amazing music recording suggest what you’re saying is not true and is n...

Hum...my own loudness feeling instead of a flat EQ curve...got to try this. Since the "hearing" is _not_ flat and a bit individual, i am not sure what i could expect. Should sound similar to, pink noise? Not exactly, more like your personal gray noise, but more simply, you'll hear everything quite ...

Re: Sine energy experiment (Sound Design / Master)

Does not that create a "flat" eq curve in the end? That sounds pretty boring (as my own test told me). What did i miss here? Where is the difference? I also need to add, that the master equalizer setting that I just mentioned to you, would never be exported applied on a sound or song! That would be...

Sine energy experiment (Sound Design / Master)

I earlier mentioned topics alike, but was lacking time to do anything more than theorizing. This would be about creating an experimental (pre)mastering standard and to see how it works. It was inspired by the fact that everyone has a different hearing spectrum, thus people find some sounds more anno...
