Sine Language – episode 095

This week, so many e-mails to answer, I couldn’t get to them all!
Jim Addie chimed in with some follow up on DC offset (thanks, Jim!),
Steve Mayfield wondered if I’d got my HDMI issues sorted (Yes! Thanks, Steve).
He offered a link to another site that reviewed some hand held field recorders, registered his ‘vote of confidence’ for a video podcast for SL100, and expressed his appreciation of the new audio2u.com podcast imaging.
Then, we heard from Ike Tamigian who owns the Tascam 122L audio interface and reckons that “for the money you can’t go wrong”. Thanks Ike!
Then, Noel Payne asked about what eq filters (high pass, low pass, notch, band pass etc) to use under what circumstances. And after I finished editing the podcast, I realised there’s more I need to add to this topic, next week. Stay tuned, Noel!
And finally, Ron Eastwood wrote in with a photography analogy regarding sample rate and bit resolution, and asked what is the most important factor (with regards audio quality)?

In episode 91, Felix left a comment on audio2u.com regarding “ratios”,
Kevin Smith asked about selecting sample rates in your multitrack project,
which led to discussions on the Nyquist theorem,
and the DVD-A spec,
Ross Bennett wrote to say that a) he loves my new mic, b) appreciated my discussion on near field and mid field monitoring in ep 90, and c) to remind us all that good monitoring is all well and good, but we should also take some time out during a large mixing session to listen to a mix we respect so that we don’t get lost in our work.
Plus, Leon McCormick wrote to ask about the processing of my voice when I’m reading out the e-mail.
