Re: Multiband for resonances

Thanks!

So just to make it clearer, I wasn't talking about a narrow notch resonance, but that the transients and sustain and echo of the strings were resonating almost the same volume, in the range of low mid frequency, and this allowed more space there.

Re: Multiband for resonances

Could be we're talking at cross purposes, my understanding of dynamic range is that it's either a) the difference between the maximum signal a bit of hardware can handle and the level where the signal disappears into the noise floor (when talking about hardware), or b) the difference between the pe...

Re: Multiband for resonances

Have you tried Gullfoss or Soothe? Yes, I have, but I didn't like the sound or find it hard to do exactly what I want, maybe I should try them again. Above the threshold nothing should be happening, so you're not expanding the dynamic range, you're just increasing the range between the transient an...

Multiband for resonances

Hi all, I am working on low strings (Cellos and Contra Bass) and I'm taming resonances in a way that was shown to me by a mastering engineer. *These are beautiful resonances which are very commonly part of the sound of low strings echoing. With multiband compression on the low mid (100-300), allowin...

Re: Parallel vs Serial Compression - Noise floor levels?

Hi Hugh! Thanks for answering. OK, I think I understand, both methods raises the noise floor "in direct proportion to the amount of 'squash' and the amount of makeup gain" = like regular downward compression. Whereas in your article you compared it to upward compression because there the n...

Parallel vs Serial Compression - Noise floor levels?

Hi all, I just read the comprehensive article from 2013 by Hugh Robjohns about Parallel Compression. I honestly rarely used parallel compression because I didn't feel I understood it but after reading it makes sense. Usually I use serial compression and I wonder if you know the resulting transfer pl...

Re: Splitting transient and sustain

Thank you for your recommendations! I will try them soon. I haven't had time yet to try the trial version of anything. I will write the results of the tests.

Re: The popularity of distressing, disintegrating sound.

Also interesting to consider what might be a parallel in other creative concerns like film, photography or painting. What is the equivelent of lo-fi 8-bit glitching in the world of fiction (writing)? I thought about this since I read it, very interesting. Here's a parallel of glitching in... I don'...

Re: The popularity of distressing, disintegrating sound.

Hi, I think there are few elements to it. As I understand there is a need of animals including humans to become part of their environment, to grow new neurological connections, and to change physically. I even heard from a singing teacher that the Diaphragm changes as a reaction to the soundscape on...

Re: Splitting transient and sustain

Thanks, yes i'm planning to start a demo spree searching for a one that nulls.
I thought in all the experience around here there will be knowledge of how to do it, maybe even manually..

(Sorry for my English btw)

Splitting transient and sustain

Hi, I saw the video of Wavesfactory Introduction to Quantum, which allows splitting the transients and sustains and applying different effects to them. I always wanted to do that, but using different plugins as effects. Do you know if its possible or a plugin to split audio to 2 channels? Preferably...

Re: Dynamic eq to enhance reverb tails?

Hello Eddie and Martin, Thanks for answering!

Lots of great information on the website, and I'm sure I'll call you in the near future as there are many things I wish to learn more and develop. :)

Thanks!
Tom
