    This article is provided by EarLevel Engineering.   Here we lay the foundation. We’ll look at analog to digital conversion, and we’ll look at the spectrum of the resulting digital signal. We’ll use that knowledge to help understand the conversion process back to analog. Though we can build real-world converters that work as described, we’re not building practical converters here; we’re interested in the mathematical concepts involved and their relationships to digital signal processing. Analog To Digital Conversion The sampling… View this post

    When the second edition of RH Consulting’s Guide to Voice Alarm Systems was published recently (joint authored by eminent pro audio consultants Roland Hemming and Richard Northwood, in e-book format), Powersoft was quick to respond. The Italian amplifier authority instantly saw that this could be adapted to provide its own customers with a bespoke version as an educational tool, offering specific information about deploying Powersoft products for emergency applications. They were soon in contact with RH Consulting with the result… View this post

    “It turns out that, within very generous tolerances, humans are insensitive to phase shifts. Under carefully contrived circumstances, special signals auditioned in anechoic conditions, or through headphones, people have heard slight differences. However, even these limited results have failed to provide clear evidence of a “preference” for a lack of phase shift. When auditioned in real rooms, these differences disappear…” – Dr. Floyd Toole As Dr. Toole states, a lot of people, including myself, have a hard time detecting phase… View this post

    Listeners can hear a difference between standard audio and better-than-CD quality, known as high-resolution audio, according to a new study published in the June issue of the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society (JAES) by Dr. Joshua Reiss of the Centre for Digital Music, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).  The meta-study compared data from 18 studies involving 450 participants listening to samples of music in different formats. In total, the studies involved over 12,000 different trials where participants were… View this post

    A book I recently read and reviewed for the AES Journal got me thinking about the blend of art and science we face regularly in professional audio. The book, “Audio Production and Critical Listening; Technical Ear Training” by Jason Corey (Focal Press/CRC Press), is a very comprehensive work and covers every conceivable approach to ear training for mix engineers. As with music, I believe that ear training is important in the audio world. Corey covers everything from EQ to dynamics… View this post

    “My background is in the studio so I can appreciate good workmanship,” says Suffolk New College Music Technology Course leader, Craig Shimmon, who’s very pleased with the arrival of the new Audient ASP4816 desk. “The other lecturers have commented on the superior build quality and the clean preamps; the layout is a dream to teach with,” he adds. Installed as part of an upgrade to the studio at the college, the analog mixing console forms an integral part of the… View this post
