Re: Focusrite review in latest issue

No, it’s an important point Dave.

How significant is the issue?

Are there any recent cases where an audio interface works well on one OS but badly on the other?

If so how many compared to the number of interfaces passing through SOS for review?

Re: Focusrite review in latest issue

What I would do if a product were reviewed solely on Windows (e.g. by Hugh) is search for other reviews on Mac. They’ll be out there somewhere….

Re: Interpreting Frequency Response numbers

Hi When a speaker manufacturer quotes a certain Frequency Response range (let's say 40 Hz to 20Khz) Is this the part of the curve that is roughly "flat" and at therefore at a strong stable volume OR does it mean ANY frequency a speaker is capable of generating at whatever power? I record ...

A lot of composition competitions have entry fees and I never take part in those as the chances of winning are so low.

Re: I am totally fed up with ads...

This problem seems very strange to me! I never have a problem with ads (on Mac and iPad). I thought this problem had been fixed some time ago.

Re: Mastering Tools In Logic ???

For synth pads, I almost always reduce the level of effects. Out of the box, the effects sound good if the pad sound is played by itself, but in a mix they are too much and make the masking effects much worse.

Pads can be subjected to quite radical EQ without damage, in fact they often need to be!

SEPIA

I found the article on SEPIA in the magazine very interesting. What surprised me is that sound engineers really value analogue outboard over digital recreations. Very few live rigs sound good enough that I would have thought it would make any perceptible difference. Clearly it does! (I don’t pretend...

Re: Mastering Tools In Logic ???

Increasing clarity is one of the main mixing tasks! An additional cause of unclarity is the use of effects. It could be worth either reducing effect levels or, if you haven’t already, EQing the signals passing into the effects processors. For reverbs it can be highly beneficial to put both HP and LP...

Re: Extrapolation - what is it in the context of an audio device?

I wouldn’t count generation of distortion as extrapolation!

Re: Extrapolation - what is it in the context of an audio device?

Extrapolation means deriving or estimating data beyond the range of the existing data, interpolation means deriving data within the range of the existing data. Interpolation is often used in the context of upsampling digital signals. https://www.ni.com/docs/en-US/bundle/labview-digital-filter-design...
