Re: Low end rubbish

So I followed Hugh’s advice and swapped out the main buss one-band eq with a linear-phase low cut in the first channel effects slot....The sub artefacts are now almost completely gone... Yay! I'm still a useful old fool... :lol: Next time I’ll be sure to enable low cut on the mic itself, or the pre...

Re: Low end rubbish

Use the band solo feature in your eq to isolate and hear what is allowed through the lead in on the slope. I tend to go for higher slopes for cutting low end nonsense but you really do need to be wary of how the slope affects the attack transients on low end sounds. On some sub basses if you use a ...

Re: Low end rubbish

So I followed Hugh’s advice and swapped out the main buss one-band eq with a linear-phase low cut in the first channel effects slot. In addition, I disabled the two lowest bands in the regular channel eq that I use to shape the rest of the guitar sound. The sub artefacts are now almost completely go...

Re: Low end rubbish

Thanks again, everyone. Hugh, I see your point about placement of the filter. I do have a HP on a regular channel eq before the compressor, but I’ll try changing the placement and type of the steep filter and use a linear phase eq for that part. I’ll report back.

Re: Low end rubbish

Thanks, everyone - wasn't aware of the properties of FFT at low frequencies. I cannot hear it on my small KRK monitors - it's below -60dBFS, and goes from around 30 down to 16Hz. As to how the guitar was recorded, it was miked with a Røde (can't remember the model name, but it's 20-odd years old) LD...

Low end rubbish

I posted this in the Mac forum,but thought maybe it was more appropriate here. Mods, please move or tell me off if this isn’t how I should be going about it. Anyway: I have just recorded a couple of acoustic ditties - solo steel string arrangements. I’m working with eq and compression to give it som...

Getting rid of low end rubbish

I have just recorded a couple of acoustic ditties - solo steel string arrangements. I’m working with eq and compression to give it the polish I’m after. In the multimeter I see some low end rubbish going all the way down to 16Hz! I can’t figure out how to get rid of it - I’ve high-pass filtered the ...

Re: New interface - performance gain?

Thank you both. It seems the Babyface is the right choice. I want to replace my current interface while it still is my decision - i.e. before it breaks. I was aware of RME’s reputation when it comes to solid drivers and long-time support. Seems the performance is the cherry on top. I forgot to say t...

New interface - performance gain?

Apologies if this has been asked before - please tell me to RTFM in that case. I have a ten year old Apogee Duet 2 which suits my needs, but it's getting a bit long in the tooth. I'm thinking about replacing it with an RME Babyface FS(?). I saw in the SOS review that the low latency performance was ...

Yes, but my hardware is seven years old. In my experience, the closer you get to end-of-life, the more risk you take. Could be I'm overly cautious.

Re: Rooms, phase, and EQ

Yes, you've made the question clearer. You're asking if a frequency roll off is always accompanied by a phase shift, whether the frequency rolloff is achieved by mechanical or electronic means. You could think on a mechanical and an electronic filter as working in the same way. A capacitor takes ou...

Re: Rooms, phase, and EQ

You have an eq in your guitar -- it's the tone control. Have you ever turned the tone down and thought "that has really messed up the phase near the cutoff"? I wouldn't think you have as we don't hear phase. The other aspect is to ask yourself does it now sound better with the tone down? ...
