Sine Language – episode 086

I know, I know… I told you all that there would be no podcasts for 7 weeks, right?
Yeah well… I got a great e-mail from Meredith Matthews (otherwise known as Mer from Braindouche, but I hadn’t made that connection at the time I recorded this) who asked about the whole “loudness war” thing.
Which of course led me off on a half hour rant about peak limiting, rms, VU, average loudness… all the usual suspects.
Anyway… THIS will be the last podcast for another 6 weeks, ok?

The prosoundweb thread I mentioned is here.
And here’s some 1kHz tone to play with, if you’re interested.

And a late starter… the ModernMeter plugin can be downloaded from here (right click and “save as”).

Sine Language – episode 064

Filed under: !Podcasts,Amplitude,Editing,Sine Language,Splicing,Voltage — Bruce Williams @ 22:55

Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m sixty-four?

In episode 64, a listener query from John Meadows prompts a discussion on how to aviod getting nasty little clicks and pops when you’re editing. Bruce answers not only how to avoid it, but why it happens in the first place.

John also mentions a piece of software called Click Repair, which may come in handy for those wishing to digitise their old LP collections.
