So I watched Zootopia the other night with the fam...
Did anyone else think that when they played the Shakira theme song "Try Everything" in the beginning and end, the midbass was ran really really hot?
With the 1200D, this is one of those scenes that in my mind doesn't call for it, but the midbass was way overpowering.
I've been trying to get a setting where it works for everything...so I went back to Scuba Steve's demo disk, and fiddled around with level on the 1200D, placement, etc. and played those scenes as well as that Shakira scene.
Conclusion? I don't think it's possible to have a 1 setting fits all for Tactile Response for all content.
Why? Because the folks that create the content for these tracks don't consider TR at all in their mix; they have no reference!
So while we could replicate what's on the disc from a Frequency Response standpoint, Tactile Response is pure taste and will vary widely with everyone's setup.
So in my setup, I landed on this: For movies that call for the big midbass impact, I turn the 1200D 10db boost at 45-50hz ON. For all other movies, I turn that boost OFF. Zootopia sounds much more natural, but when I turn it on for the right content, I still get that "kick in your chest/loose your breath" feeling.
, it would be interesting to hear how this Shakira scene feels with your flat PSD. You'd have to run it with your subs and Crowsons because that midbass is highly audible...but interested what your thoughts are with that scene.
