Question on using outboard EQ

When EQing a mix with an outboad EQ I heard remarkable changes coming from sub-millimeter parameter changes. For example, a little less lofreq-gain with a little less lofreq Q, a bit more hifreq gain and a bit more midfreq gain with a little more midfreq Q. And in the result the Bass was more define...

Peak Limiting - Bus Tools Limiter with DRC?

I was comparing different limiter plugins for mixing, again. This was the first time trying the Limiter /w DRC from Pyramix' Bus Tools. With a little tweaking of the DRC parameters I achieved a very good result for Drums. Never got anything like that from other limiters. Some members mentioned the b...

Re: NON Real Time Mix REVERB

I have a plugin that offers different quality modes: non-oversampling, oversampling and oversampling-on-mixdown. If I am not mistaken, this implies plugins are notified about the current state of the host (realtime playback vs. non-realtime rendering). Maybe the reverb plugin defaults to a different...

Re: Lexicon Plug-in

Not sure if this helps: In Pyramix 8 with the separate VST Scanner application, I would - deinstall the plugins causing the problem - then let the VST Scanner do a complete "Re-Scan" of the plugin folder/-s - reinstall the plugins - start a regular "Scan" of the VST Scanner This ...

Re: UAD-2 doubled load in real time mixdown

Another forum member posted an alternative to the mixdown function (can't find that thread again): Realtime recording the playback after rerouting the mixbus via 2-ch internal bus to a stereo track (with the mixer strip's input type set to the mixbus and the mixer strip switched "off"). Th...

UAD-2 doubled load in real time mixdown

When doing a mixdown of a project in non-realtime mode, the dsp load of my uad-2 system doubles compared to just playing back the project. After the first non-realtime mode mixdown, the uad-2 dsp load stays doubled. It always was this way with my Pyramix and now is beginning to cause effort for work...

Re: Bit Resolution in Audio Processing

I am not angry at science. But I find it surprising when people in general, including scientists, are so convinced they know already everything they need to know, that they start to argue in form of unproven statements (noise) instead of looking at the question (signal) - maybe a distraction strateg...

Re: Bit Resolution in Audio Processing

Very well then in plain language: Nobody invited them to do so.

And just to make it more clear - the last thing I need is some zen or scientific mindset turning over ten years of careful preparation, hard work and an insane amount of patience and dedication into garbage.

Re: Bit Resolution in Audio Processing

Now it's not only theory and science but also academic degrees which are more true than real world results? Let's look at the processing chain: Identical Clip(s) > Gain_1 (ClipGain) > Gain_2 (MixerStripGain, constant) > Gain_3 (MixerStripPanorama, constant) > Gain_4 (MixBusGain) We have an identical...

Re: Bit Resolution in Audio Processing

:lol: Hihi, that was a good one. But seriously, you could read the description of the experiment. Or try it yourself and see if you get similar results.

(One detail was missing in the description from June 2nd and added there.)

Re: Bit Resolution in Audio Processing

1) Can you please explain what are the most important parameters in my experiment, and why? 2) 24 bit. 3) Dithering is adding a random signal to the output. Two downmixes with dither would always show at least the difference of the added dither signals. Since we are looking at low level differences ...

Re: Bit Resolution in Audio Processing

If you call this a dialogue. Reading through the paper posted by Mr. Guettler I understand two points: 1) It is assumed that the signal-to-noise-ratio of floating point arithmetic is independent of signal level. Because this is generally different form the noisefloor behaviour in fixed point arithme...

Re: Bit Resolution in Audio Processing

Is this a try to turn a simple feature request into a discussion?

I have to admit, I can't remember having heard the term "dynamic resolution" before. Can you clarify your question?

Re: Bit Resolution in Audio Processing

As far as I understand this question is why the line of reasoning is easier assuming fixed processing. Currently the flaoting point arithmetic of our workstations is not perfect. Almost every operation introduces tiny errors. It is the same with the restricted resolution of discrete values in fixed ...

Re: Bit Resolution in Audio Processing

Well, I once just asked about internal 64bit processing and received an answer indicating this is not going to happen soon. So there is this difference between practice and theory, right? Remember, Faraday did the experiments and later Maxwell was able to express the results in a more scientific way...
