And you're on THIS thread? Says the man with the tuned membrane trap and the gubbins....
(emoticon may be in limbo as the thread continues)
I think we understand, Jim. I would hope that we all look at the 1/24 smoothed plot to identify areas that need addressing. However, in your example above, other than the issue at~35Hz, I don't see any other glaring problems. Of course, that would depend on one's objectives, I guess.
And we always use no smoothing for the <300Hz anyway... not sure what is going on here.
I think we are misunderstanding each other. I use no smoothing at all <300Hz and 1/24th >300Hz for analysis. I only use 1/6th after the analysis etc has been done, to get a 'feel' for what I have achieved, in a way that my ears will hear it. Is this not correct?
Yes, good point. I am +/-3dB at 1/3rd smoothing. Is that good enough then? I am starting to get confused. And should that be for individual channels, combined L+R+subs or what?
Hehehe. I am not as concerned about the ultimate graph as some are. I am full of admiration for those who are, but it isn't for me. Once we get below the threshold of audibility my interest disappears entirely I am afraid. I decided against tuned membrane traps, as anyone would, after seeing Jerry's results. I did like the look of limp membrane traps though - and if I was starting again I think they are what I might choose to use.
Are you saying that if we see high frequency rolloff when measuring L+R that this could be the reason? I hadn't heard that before...but then again, all of this about issues measuring L+R is fairly new to the thread AFAIK.
