This time we’re talking about signal processing, including plugins, onboard console DSP, system processors, and analog units as well.
Acoustic music heard over a sound reinforcement system is all about beauty and naturalness, not hype.
Comprehensive approach to sound system tuning combines design and equalization practices into a logical, accurate, repeatable process.
Learning to use FFT measurement software and interpret the data takes a lot of time and practice, but it’s worth it if you’re in for the long haul.
Fitting these instruments into the mix is a challenge which begins with microphone placement, then the proper use of dynamics, equalization and panning.
Comparing measurements to determine if a standard graphic equalizer is capable of producing the types of curves used in system optimization.
