      The eyes and ears do not always agree when it comes to sound quality. (Related article here.) If making acoustic measurements is so difficult, why bother? Why not tune the system based solely on listening? Because there are several very good reasons for including our eyes in the system tuning process! We humans base our concept of reality upon the evidence presented by the five senses to the brain. Our concept of “blue sky” or “green grass” is the… View this story

      Editor’s Note: Be sure to check out Pat’s related articles on this topic, including Examining FIR Filtering In Sound Reinforcement Systems and Creating & Applying FIR Filters. We live in an age of “bigger is better.” During a recent SynAudCon Forum thread, I suggested that this philosophy is not necessarily true for the length of an FIR filter. As of this writing, the typical filter length supported by DSP is 1024 taps, with some as high as 4096 taps.… View this story

      Here’s a handy quiz for checking your knowledge about audio power. Rather than submit you to the typical “right or wrong” questions with exact numerical answers, I’ve elected to provide a different means of self-evaluation. I can tell you up front that the answer to every question is “It depends!” But what’s really being asked is “WHAT does it depend on?” At first glance it may seem that the question is not even related to audio. Don’t be fooled.… View this story

    Courtesy of The Rane Library.   This article is provided by Rane as part of the Rane Library and originally appeared in the Syn-Aud-Con Newsletter, vol. 31, nos. 2 & 3, 2003 In his landmark 1994 AES paper, Neil Muncy described a common equipment design error that allows current flowing on the shields of audio wiring to enter equipment and cause audible interference. He called this design error “the Pin 1 problem,” because it was an improper connection of the… View this story
