Sine Language – episode 113

In ep 113, a bit of a discussion on patchbays,
Michael Rooney’s AATranslator software,
Peachey wanted to know about how to lay out the audio for a film mix,
somebody liked my Muggshot commercial and wanted to know about de-breathing techniques,
the Loudness War awareness campaign is reaching mainstream (with a Facebook group supporting an end to the madness),
a new album WITH dynamics caught me by surprise,
and Yuli Mitsner alerted us to a Mac app called Max (which sounds like the Mac equivalent of dbpoweramp) for converting audio files from one format to another.

Building the pod – episode 132

This week, Michael Rooney has finished his new program, AATranslator, which will the allow the import of various other DAW session formats into Audition.
Then, we look at the next item in the ‘Filters and EQ’ section… the graphic EQ.

The graphic EQ in 10 band mode. Each filter covers an octave.

The graphic EQ in 20 band mode. Each filter covers half an octave.

The graphic EQ in 30 band mode. Each filter covers one third of an octave.

The waveform display, after a cut at 8kHz, in 10 band mode. Notice how far the dip extends to the left and right of the centre frequency (it covers a full octave).

The spectral display, after a cut at 8kHz, in 10 band mode. Notice the area of the display which is NOT yellow, but rather orange (signalling a drop in amplitude).

The waveform display, after a cut at 8kHz, in 30 band mode. Notice how far the dip extends to the left and right of the centre frequency (it now only covers a third of an octave).

The spectral display, after a cut at 8kHz, in 30 band mode. Notice how the orange section of the display is shorter, because the amplitude drop is narrower than in 10 band mode.
