Re: Bit Resolution in Audio Processing

This topic is meant to be a feature request for Pyramix. May I ask, why was this topic moved from the "Pyramix suggestions" forum to "The Merging Cellar" forum?

Re: Bit Resolution in Audio Processing

With "localization" I mean pinpointing (left/right, front/rear, size) a certain instrument in a mix. Which is especially difficult to achieve for background/low level instruments in dense arrangements. With "room mic" I mean the mic capturing mainly room information and which is ...

Bit Resolution in Audio Processing

Pyramix internally uses 32 bit floating point processing. According to chapter "Single Precision, Double Precision, or Floating Point?" in Bob Katz' book, 32-bit float is inferior to 48-bit fixed. To keep the math simple, let's assume the internal processing resolution of Pyramix was 48-bi...

Re: Reverb in Pyramix

The task manager does not show extensive cpu load on any of the cores. The audio stream "stutters", it is not digital clipping. I know the SIR from when it first came out as a freeware version. And years later after quite some testing the SIR2 became my favourite, too. For the most part th...

Reverb in Pyramix

This could be in the general discussion forum as well - but I am a native user, so ... For reverb I am looking for the most realistic illusion. I just discovered the QL Spaces reverb, a very natural sounding preset impulse reverb. To my ears it sounds more like placing an instrument in that space in...

Re: Pan Noir

Thanks for answering. I hope we may continue with this discussion, even though it is no longer about the pan noir (=off-topic). If not, maybe one of the administrators just tells us and deletes this post? I did not think of it in terms of phase coherency, slap echoes or diffuse reflections. Quite an...

Re: Pan Noir

After some more testing I found a solution which gives me the result I was looking for. I am sharing it here, to complete this thread. Somewhere I found the information that pzms (Pressure Zone Microphone, boundary layer microphone) allow for very natural sounding recordings. Makes sense, no reflect...

Re: New take without going out of record

It would be very useful if this allows to record multiple passes within a defined loop. For a clip recorded in such a way, a selection list would be needed to select (ideally at any time, not only immediately after the recording) which pass of the recording will be played back by the clip.

Automatic Clip-Splitting with optional Crossfades

When cleaning recorded tracks, often a Gate is used. But Gates do not always deliver optimum results. For better results the work can be done manually, which allows to define the exact position and amount of level reduction individually. It would be a real timesaver if Pyramix would offer a function...

Re: Cleaning microphone recordings

Thanks for the replies! I'll keep in mind to check out the algorithmix and izotope denoisers. I agree, I do not want to completely remove the fret noise, but IMO depending on the arrangement such noises sometimes draw too much attention. Which brand of "dynamic euqalizer" do you use? Thank...

Re: Cleaning microphone recordings

Thanks for the answers. Maybe I am a bit too picky about this. I am not recording full arrangements, but single instruments for multitrack arrangements. For this prupose it is not necessary to remove an isolated audio event (a squeak or cough or page turns) from a signal while leaving the rest of th...

Cleaning microphone recordings

When for example recording an acoustic guitar, I cut the clips around fret noises. Then I have three clips: before noise, noise and after noise. With the clip gain I lower the noise clip so that it does not disturb the listening, but not so much that it would sound unnaturally. But the sudden gain c...
