    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   An audio pass filter attenuates an entire range of frequencies. There are two types of pass filters (Figure 1, below). A high-pass filter (HPF) attenuates content below a cutoff frequency, allowing higher frequencies to pass through the filter. A low-pass filter (LPF) attenuates content above a cutoff frequency, allowing lower frequencies to pass through the filter. The slope of filter attenuation is usually quantified in decibels per octave. For example,… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   As more and more of our A/V/L equipment becomes computerized—and thus is running from a hard drive—figuring out how long a drive will last is quickly becoming a big deal for technical leaders. A quick count in my tech booth tallied 20 hard drives (both SSD and spinning). Some of those are backups, and that doesn’t count the three others that we keep in another room as backups. So to say our operation… View this post

    In partnership with direct developer Brainworx, Universal Audio has added the Maag EQ4 Plug-In to the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform. In a self-professed quest for “audio perfection,” Cliff Maag designed the EQ4 to provide exceptional transparency and top-end presence while maintaining a true, natural sound. Based on his classic — and long-discontinued — NTI EQ3 from the ’80s, the EQ4 features Maag’s legendary Air Band control, a major component to the vocal mix chain on Madonna’s Ray of Light as… View this post

    Universal Audio has captured Fairchild’s revered tube character with the new Fairchild Tube Limiter Plug-In Collection for the UAD Powered plug-ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces. In 2004, Universal Audio released the Fairchild 670 Legacy plug-in, heralded as the best Fairchild 670 emulation available. Now UA has improved the original time constants and gain reduction curves while modeling — for the first time ever — the complete tube-powered amplifier and transformer sections of their hardware counterparts. Far beyond other Fairchild… View this post

    Way back when I started in professional audio, hooking up a sound reinforcement system was a pretty straightforward affair. Signals ran one way, point-to-point, and every signal had its own cable. Larger systems included a multi-channel snake, which allowed us to position the mixing board away from the stage and hear what we were actually putting through the system. Over the years I’ve watched as analog systems have progressed from simple cables to complex routing solutions. These interconnect systems can… View this post

  • guerilla compression
    Karl Coryat 11/18/13 02:46 PM,
    Unlike an expander, which increases dynamic range, a compressor reduces dynamic range. In recording, running a signal through both a compressor and an expander can be very effective. Why would you want to reduce and enlarge the dynamic range at the same time? Actually, you wouldn’t. They don’t both come into play at the same time; an expander does its thing when signals are at their quietest (or nonexistent), and a compressor does its thing in the louder part of… View this post

    Symetrix has introduced a new online planning tool that allows users to quote and design SymNet DSP systems. Available now to select distributors, integrators and consultants, SymQ can be employed to plan a variety of DSP systems that use hardware enabled with Audinate Dante networking technology. SymQ users enter information about the number and type of audio inputs and outputs required in a given DSP system and the tool generates an estimate of the quantity and type of SymNet devices… View this post
