Re: Question on using outboard EQ

Another update: In the reply from Nov 08, 2014 I mentioned cables. Some people clearly hear a difference using different cables. For example, replacing a Mogami Gold with a Vovox cable of comparable length makes a difference. Naming these only because they are well known and not saying one is "...

Re: Peak Limiting - Bus Tools Limiter with DRC?

Update2: About the DRC of the Bus Tools Limiter: To my ears, the shorter release time achieved by the DRC allows for more attack/transient but the modulation introduced by adapting the release time slightly veills the signal. Also, if dynamics processing is required but not necessarily restricted to...

Re: Question on using outboard EQ

Update: (Foreword - please consider, we may prefer different sound ideals and/or methods of working and have different musical and theoretical backgrounds leading us to different conclusions.) I noticed the effects described above for the first time while using an outboard EQ. For this reason the ti...

Re: Peak Limiting - Bus Tools Limiter with DRC?

Update: The Bus Tools Limiter is still the most transparent limiter plugin in my collection for catching peaks and some loudness increase. For best transparency for example on acoustic guitar recordings (microphone, not sampled) I use it without the DRC, with short release time and with everything e...

Difference in sound before/after Internal Bus

This is Pyramix 8 (but maybe the same in Pyramix 9?): The mix goes to the Stereo Master Output Bus, outputs set to Internal Bus 1/2 without dithering, which are inputs for a (not active - 'off') stereo track which is set to direct output to a stereo asio device (and then DA, headphones etc.). To get...

Pyramix mixer: mix level per single or all insert effect/s

Not every plugin offers the possibility to mix the output of the plugin with the original signal. I wonder if such a feature could be added to each effect slot. Or could it be added to the signal finally resulting from all the plugins inserted into a certain mixer strip? If - see post before - plugi...

Pyramix mixer: plugins per send to SubGroup/Aux

Please imagine having a mix with various mixer strips sending their signal to a reverb effect. Everything is fine but the snare, which should have a huge amount of reverb added to it. The sound of the snare itself is just right, but it is too bright for the reverb. The reverb tail of the snare, and ...

Pyramix mixer with one tab folder per track group

Still using Pyramix 8, which works great for me, but I do not know if later versions of Pyramix already have a feature comparable to the following: When working with a larger number of tracks, it is useful to organize them in track groups. But while in the track window a whole track group can be exp...

Re: Different playback levels - Pyramix mixer vs. mixdown fi

Which one? Some VLC media player version from last year or the year before. I am looking for a reliable player application which has no features, just pure playback - lika a cd player or so. Then there is no way to have the wrong plugin activated, or parameters set wrongly or not having done necess...

Re: Different playback levels - Pyramix mixer vs. mixdown fi

Thank you for your answers. Of course I did that before, but re-checked the signal-flow and found an unexpected cause: One playback application has a gain control. Here 100% is not 0 dB but turns down the Windows internal mixer's Wave playback to 1/2. Of course I checked the Windows internal mixer's...

Re: Different playback levels - Pyramix mixer vs. mixdown fi

Anybody?

(I don't want to urge, but I wonder whether I should integrate a workaround in my workflow for this issue. Which would not be a problem, but maybe it is as simple as for example a configuration setting that I am not aware of?)

Re: Different playback levels - Pyramix mixer vs. mixdown fi

Thank you for answering so soon. I checked your suggestions, but they are not what causes the difference in this case. I found a very simple way to reproduce the behaviour: I created a new 176/32 project with two stereo-tracks and placed a 176/32 WAV file on the first track. All mixer strips were se...

Different playback levels - Pyramix mixer vs. mixdown files

Hello, under the following circumstances... Pyramix 8.1 mixdown at 176/32 WAV Media Management/Sample Rate Conversion to 44/16 WAV ... the 176/32 file from the mixdown and the 44/16 file from the HeptaSRC play back with roughly the same perceived loudness, but with about 5 to 6.5 dB less perceived l...

Re: Question on using outboard EQ

Okay, for the fun of it let's go a little offroad. Regarding software simulations of analog gear my individual conclusion is that (FWIW) they are really great flight simulators. Reliable and instant-recall tools for refining the idea of the direction to go. But you still stay at home and get not any...

Re: Question on using outboard EQ

Frank, thank you for your answer. So such results are not explainable by an ideal equalizer, which could allow for a theoretical approach. Such results depend on a certain circuit design and there is no other approach than work with it and learn? Okay, that's good enough for me. I am using a more or...
