Rick Jeffs, Scott Holden, Dennis Bohn, Rane Corporation RaneNote 155, written September 2005 Chapter 1 -- Dynamics Processors Basics The dynamic range of an audio passage is the ratio of the loudest signal to the quietest signal.

Technology & Applications

For signal processors the magnitude of the power supply voltages restricts the maximum output signal and the noise floor determines the minimum output signal. Professional-grade signal processing equipment can output maximum levels of +26 dBu, with the best noise floors being down around -94 dBu. Dynamics processors alter an audio signal based upon its frequency content and amplitude level; hence the term "dynamics" since the processing is program dependent and ever changing.

All dynamics processors have the common structure shown in Figure 1: a gain control element in the main signal path and a side-chain containing a detector and gain computer. Figure 1. The signal path is the route the main audio takes through the unit. Figure 2. Chapter 2 -- Basic Compressors. White Noise Sweep Tutorial (in Logic) The Loudness War.

Matt Houghton 1: Cubase's External FX plug-ins are specified in the VST Connections Window.

Using Outboard Gear

I've compared a lot of analogue modelling plug-ins with equivalent outboard gear recently, and while there's no doubt that some software is capable of great results, and offers superb value for money, it's plain to me that there's still a place for decent outboard in a studio. For example, even the best models from the likes of Waves, Softube and UA seem to me to be incapable of replicating precisely the complex behaviour of gear that uses audio transformers, particularly in the case of compressors and limiters that the user deliberately pushes hard for effect. Back in SOS May 2010, I wrote an article (/sos/may10/articles/hybrid.htm) about so-called 'hybrid studios' which combine software and outboard gear, and that's well worth a read if you're new to the idea of using hardware with a computer recording system.
