Brauerizing: A How To Guide | Brauerizing: Techniques and Concepts. Brauerizing: A How To Guide Introduction “Brauerizing” is the name given to a mixing mentality honed by Grammy award winning mixing engineer Michael Brauer, feeding audio into compressors and equalizers in order to impart harmonic content to the input signal, as well as utilizing subtle group compression to “glue” audio together through an audio phenomena known as “counter pumping”.

This how to guide will explain the three stage process of “Brauerizing”; Multi-Bus Compression, Multi-Vocal Compression and the utilization of dual parallel 1176’s for extra cushion in the mix. Multi-Bus Compression – Introduction and Analogy It is common practice to utilize compression across the stereo bus in order to compress the entire mix in an effort to add tone, attitude or knit the mix into a more cohesive product. The origins of the Multi-Bus Compression technique harnessed by Brauer are rooted in an Aretha Franklin mix. Multi-Bus Compression – Calibration and Routing Figure 1: Multi-Bus Compression OTB. Room EQ. Corrects deficiencies of room acoustics (multipoint compensation).Corrects acoustic imperfections of speakers.Avoids the pre-echo (pre-ringing) problem of conventional convolver-based room correction systems. The absence of pre-echo ensures the neutrality of the sound.Works in rooms, halls and outdoor venues of any size.Suitable for real-time applications.Corrects both amplitude and phase components of frequency response.Quells resonance peaks of frequency response while leaving the deep notches.

Avoids the overcompensation which happens in conventional linearizing room correction systems.Manually adjustable level of compensation allows one to reach the maximum transparency of the sound.Supports full range of sample rates from 44,056 kHz up to 384 kHz. All sample rates are supported without resampling to avoid any possible loss in quality.Includes a custom target curve feature.Applies 64-bit signal path throughout.Works with USB measurement microphones (e.g.

Hi Trolls,Included here are some of the Photos of my very recently acquired MSS Recording LatheThis Lathe is a Perfect basis for a restoration project, which was my intention when buying it for around £800.

It is however much too large for my very modest home and I must confess, I was totally fooled by Photographic Perspective when viewing and making my purchase of it from ebay. Old age and infirmity mean I cannot give this Lathe the attention it so thoroughly deserves, and to say I'm gutted about it, would be the understatement of the year . Its dimensions are 2Ft x 2Ft3in x 1Ft8in approx, and it weighs in around 400lbs+++ excluding the Platter which I additionally figure to be somewhere between 40-80lbs. Soulbear. K100 Monitor.

Dual driver sub F25 matches the low frequency output of our vented subs and for music use the output is even higher. The dual driver design increases efficiency so that only half the power is required for a given output level. Like our other high output options, a 800WRMS amplifier is included. Direct Servo Technology All our subwoofers use our patented Direct Servo technology. The servo enables precise control over the cone which is essential for tight, dynamic and accurate bass.

It also counteracts many different driver non-linearities and allows us to use lighter drivers which avoid the need for excessive amounts of amplifier power. Some of the benefits of Direct Servo include: Read more about Direct Servo in our technology section. View animation demonstrating how Direct Servo works The standard amplifier of F25 is H800XLR3. The feet are sold separately. These subwoofers are shipped via UPS freight. Bob Hodas - Speaker Placement and Acoustic Environment Effects.

Speaker Placement and Acoustic Environment Effects on Nearfield Monitor Systems MIX Magazine, November 1994 – by Bob Hodas As an independent recording engineer, I have been using Nearfield monitors for the past fourteen years. The decision to purchase my own nearfields was made in 1980 after a disastrous recording project in Japan. Studio selection was handled by the recording company and everything was set in stone when I walked off the plane. Three separate studios were used for tracking, overdubs, and mixing. All three studios sounded completely different since they had different monitors and acoustic designers. All of the staff engineers were quite proud of their rooms and I was very uncomfortable suggesting that there were acoustical problems.

Speaker/Studio Monitor Placement Secrets | Room Setup 101. Floor/Ceiling Reflection Calculator. The DIY Bass Traps / DIY Bass Absorber Kit Guide - Acoustic Fields. Today we’re going to finally assemble our DIY Bass Absorber BDA kit. This is our low frequency absorber kit. The only difference between this and our production units is that the production units have the carbon filters inside them. Now a lot of people call DIY bass absorbers DIY bass traps. I don’t subscribe to that vernacular because bass isn’t trapped by anything and I think its misleading to think in those terms.

So in the below video we’re going to show you how you can use our foam inside of the bass absorber instead of the mineral wool products that we’ve been specifying. Watch the video as you read this text as it will help. Here’s an image of the front piece. Carl’s going to show you how to slide the particular pieces in as we progress through the build. You’ve got to put a couple screws in the bottom of it to hold it all together. See how everything fits good. Now, you use the same approach to put the front two walls in there.

Audio DiffMaker. Audio DiffMaker is a freeware tool set intended to help determine the absolute difference between two audio recordings, while neglecting differences due to level difference, time synchronization, or simple linear frequency responses.

The difference recording that results is only what has changed between the two recordings. If anything - a change of component, a treatment, mechanical damping, etc. - is having any audible effect on the audio signal in a system, the difference recording will have audible content. The end result is primarily intended to be evaluated by ear.

This relatively simple idea can be used demonstratet whether some products can alter audio signals in audio equipment. Changes detected by Audio DiffMaker are not necessarily audible changes for any given person. Some changes will not sound different, and some are too weak to be heard when accompanied by the unchanged part of the program material. What Can Audio DiffMaker Do? What will you need to try it?

This might sound clichéd, but we're going to say it anyway: what Mazen Murad doesn't know about mastering isn't worth knowing. His credits include releases from a raft of modern-day superstars, from the quirky talents of Björk to Duffy's sultry swing, Groove Armada's laid-back tracks and the raw rock muscle of Muse.

We asked him to contribute to our collection of pro tips for aspiring mastering engineers, and he duly obliged… Move the bass If your bass is muddy, try using mid/side EQ. "You can take out the bass where it doesn't need to be - say if there's a bit of spill into the stereo," says Mazen. Compression affects width A narrow mix can be widened using mid/side processing, as compression and gain on the outer frequencies will accentuate them. Tricksy kicks If your kicks are cutting through too much yet turning them down takes out too much, try compression with a fast Attack and/or slow Release.

Drop the output Use multiple limiters "Don't just use one limiter," says Mazen. Do dither. Free Mastering Software For Windows & Mac!

Det jag eventuellt skulle ändra på är att forsta vinkeln in i rummet skulle jag ta bort och ersätta med den böjliga, ljudämparen du har. Anledningen är att ljud tycker det är jatteskoj att bli dämpade i krökar, för det är mer effektivt. Annars ser det ut som en konstruktion värd att satsa på. Jag fattar att du inte är ute efter att bygga en panelabsorbent eller liknande och jag tycker konstruktionen ser alldeles utmärkt ut för att vara en hörnabsorbent. Steven P. Helm: DIY Bass Traps.
