    When traveling to different time zones, we need to correct our time-keeping tools in order to align our activities to the local standard time. Very simple. Likewise in sound reinforcement systems, we often encounter multiple sources of misalignment, albeit in much smaller time increments. The importance of these misalignments is often subject to debate, but with the advent of a wide variety of very good digital processing products, correcting such anomalies is no longer out of reach for most of… View this post

    Ken DeLoria 05/24/13 10:20 AM,
    Over the years many have debated the relative merits of “looking at screen traces” on an analyzer versus using human hearing to determine how a loudspeaker, or an entire system, actually performs. While both practices are of course valid, it’s extremely difficult for the human ear to detect, characterize, and correct small deviations in frequency and phase response, and even harder to characterize driver distortion in a meaningful manner. Likewise, the ear is often stymied when attempting to typify transient… View this post
