Sine Language – episode 099

This week, an answer for Bomar who thought he heard distortion in episode 98,
another mic comparison, this time between the R84 and my AKG C3000,
Jim Addie wrote in with detailed definitions of DC offset and wave asymmetry,
plus a reminder about a great thread on PSW about digital recording levels.

Also mentioned, the Shure SM81, and Rycote wind socks.

Sine Language – episode 097

Filed under: !Podcasts,AEA,DC offset,Filters,Neumann,Peak,Psychoacoustics,R84,Sine Language,U87 — Bruce Williams @ 15:53

In ep 97, a quick look back at the definition of ‘bandwidth’ (in relation to peak filters, as mentioned in ep 96),
the Pro Audio Reference library at Rane is definitely worth bookmarking,
the Rane article on Constant Q Equalizers is worth reading too,
not quite a ‘war story’, but an interesting observation I made regarding mics in the studio,
not sure what a Neumann U87 looks like? Try this,
Jim Weishorn asked for further clarification on DC offset,
and Ross Bennett chimed in with a story about incorrect useage of technical terms in the IT industry,
plus a discussion on EQ and psychoacoustics.

Sine Language – episode 093

Filed under: !Podcasts,DC offset,Sine Language — Bruce Williams @ 7:00

This week, another e-mail from Jim Addie about early (mid 80′s) digital recording systems.
Plus, a discussion on DC offset… what it is, why you don’t want it, and how to fix it if you’ve got it. Sounds like a disease, doesn’t it?
