Re: Ventura - end of the road for the Trash Can?

This was partly the point of my original post - in my case I have a computer which was new in 2018 but will not get any more OS updates once Monterey becomes dormant. But even if I had something newer than a Trash Can the support for previous hardware in Ventura only goes back 5 years to 2017. Mayb...

Re: Ventura - end of the road for the Trash Can?

If it’s any consolation (it’s not), many attacks have a human error-based initial foothold, so taking stuff off of the Wi-Fi until it’s actually needed for something will reduce risk substantially. What worries me is that all the IoT crap that people are getting has abysmal security posture, so even...

Re: Ventura - end of the road for the Trash Can?

Another thing to think about is that when an OS is beyond EOL there won’t be anymore security updates or patches. This can be serious if your computer is networked in some form (most are). Many think that disabling Wi-Fi is sufficient, but Bluetooth can have various vulnerabilities - depending on ha...

Re: Crackling at low latencies on M1 Mac, recording audio with no plugins

As mentioned upthread, an M1 Mac is a beast and should not be panting because of the recording, low buffer or not. Time Machine is notorious for interrupting other processes, and even if the CPU has a lot more to go on, it won’t help if the cycles aren’t used where they’re needed. Disabling Tme Mach...

Re: Preamp gain question

Hello. So I am planning on getting a cloudlifter to plug into an irig pre hd to iphone for recording my acoustic songs. Right now I have to put the irig pre at almost max to get a clean sound but then it clips very easily on loud songs. Someone said that with the cloudlifter you only need the irig ...

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 ...
