Sine Language – episode 108

This week, I discuss a couple of e-mails traded back and forth between myself and Karl Cooper, who asked about all the usual suspects…. tracking levels, compression, signal chains etc.
Which of course led me to talking (again) about this thread at prosoundweb.com :)
Next up, in an effort to get further through the backlog of Christmas/New Year e-mails, I cover another message from My Man in Hollywood, this time responding to some of Jim Addie’s comments from a previous episode (is this getting convoluted, or what?) on theatre speaker systems.
MMiH provided this link to show us all what serious theatre speaker systems look like! Thanks mate.
Then, something a little off the usual beaten path… Tommie Kelly wrote to tell me about his daily web-based comic strip Road Crew.
Well worth a look!
And to wrap it all up, a couple of e-mails from Jim Weishorn enquiring about dither, an oft-neglected piece of audio-nija trickery.

This week, a couple of listener e-mails to answer regarding why mixdowns which peaked at 0dBFS in MTV come out 3dB lower in EV, and another quick recap of what dither is and when to use it.
Also, the promo Bruce mixed for Phil Massyn’s new podcast, Podify.
And as for the MIDI sequencer in AA3? You’re on your own, people. Sorry! I give up.

Sine Language – episode 078

I wasn’t planning on doing another podcast this early in the year, but a couple of e-mails came in, and I figured I may as well just get on answer ‘em!
This week, an “end of year” greeting from long-time listener, Gary Lerude. Thanks mate!
John Meadows asked about what effects or processes get over used, and which don’t get the attention they deserve. (NB. The one thing I should have also mentioned which doesn’t receive the attention it should is mic technique!)
And Vassya asked about why 44.1 kHz or 48kHz, dither, and headphones.
