Anyway, the amount of info you get now from these is so much better than when this thread started, like when you manually added the yellow BEQ line, LOL.

Insane work guys, @aron7awol , @3ll3d00d , @PioManiac

I still can’t understand how 3ll3 manage to make such a cool prgram, and how much info he can get from it, and how incredible usefull it ended up being for this purpose, but i am in awe !

I agree, Inferno looks awsome, and as you say it is much easier to see where it is loudest. And spesially with the black background it pops more.

It gets my vote
100% Agreed! the color switch looks fantastic,
as well as the wide horizontal format that's better matched to the graph above it.

Much easier on my old eyes for sure and easier to read at a quick glance.

You guys Rock!

I also like the marker size in spectrum to be that little bit bigger, just big enough so the individual markers are overlapping. It comes out a bit blurry on here though, I guess the avs forum software is resampling/resizing the image in superblurrovision (or the browser is), right click and open the image in a new tab then zoom it to full size to see what I mean.

It's only getting better and BETTER. Absolutely love the spectrum graph addition. This is SUPER incredible work Dood, Aron and Piomaniac. Thanks so much for your time and dedications

The default colourmap here is viridis, colorcet's rainbow is a perceptually uniform version of jet. I think matplotlib's inferno seems better to me.
Inferno looks great to me as well. I love that it has the fade to black that I requested separately on Github last night! I thought that would look awesome with the black background.

I agree, and that was the reasoning behind one of my earlier questions to you on Github about the marker shape and could they be more rectangular, because I'd like them to be wider so that they overlap horizontally but they are already overlapping vertically so I'd rather not overlap them any more in that dimension since we'd just be losing resolution. I narrowed the chart as much as the app would let me but it still wasn't enough to make them overlap horizontally. I thought ideally the markers could auto-size to fill the space between them, but wasn't sure that was technically feasible and/or worth your time.

The difference between the charts I previously posted and the ones d00d recently posted is that he has the frequency range at 1-160 and I dropped it to 1-45 (mostly because that was the biggest I could make it with the chart having 5Hz gridlines). Then I was trying to figure out a way to have it not take up too much real estate, but I also think it is very important to be able to easily compare the pre-BEQ and post-BEQ spectrums. IMO something like a pre-BEQ chart that changes on mouseover to a post-BEQ chart would be ideal, but that's not technically feasible on a forum post AFAIK. An animated GIF is another option, but I feel like that would be kind of clunky. Narrowing them vertically and stacking them on the side is the best compromise I could find that BEQ Designer currently allows. I considered requesting a horizontal version of the same chart (time on the x axis, frequency on the y axis) which I would then stack vertically, but I've made so many requests to @3ll3d00d that I figured I'd wait until we got the rest of the display tweaks he and I have been collaborating on settled first. The other thing I liked about the horizontal layout would be that it would give more real estate on the time axis, which is the one that doesn't have full resolution and overlaps a lot.

Hey guys, I'm seeing a marked slowdown in operation between beqdesigner 0.3.7 and 0.4.4 - is this because of the increased working file sizes such as these two extracted audio files from AVP? Task Manager always shows beqdesigner 0.4.4 as "not responding" whenever it works with the wav.

[beqdesigner 0.3.7] AVP_s1_custom_to_mono.wav - 19,104 KB
[beqdesigner 0.4.4] AVP_s1_5.1(side)_to_mono.wav - 916,967 KB

Is there any reason - for strictly the purpose of BEQ filter determination - that 0.3.7 with its speed and smaller file sizes should not be chosen over 0.4.4? Any settings in 0.4.4 that would produce the smaller size file? The spectrum's are a nice feature, but I'm not sure they are key to filter creation.


Am I missing something?

I agree completely with everything you say here. I love the way you set it up with pre-BEQ and BEQ side by side, making it easy to compare. 0-45 hz is great as that is where BEQ changes things, and having time on the vertical axes makes it easier to see differences. After all, you are cramming 1.5-2.5 hours of data into maybe a 5 inch tall pic(depending on screen size of course), so having it taller than wider gives it more detail.

In short, i like your setup, only with the Inferno colourmap

Yes, and the only other thing with the vertical layout is I am limited by my vertical screen resolution as far as the maximum resolution I can cram into the time axis. Switching to a horizontal layout would let me cram more in since my screen resolution is wider than it is tall. I'm just not sure that is worth it because I'm not sure how well they would stack vertically and still allow direct comparison on the screen looking at both at once, and I'm not sure how we would like frequency on the y-axis, and I would hate for @3ll3d00d to put the time in implementing it without knowing if we would even like it.

Thanks for that. Re-searching this thread I found discussion of "decimate" - think it went over my head at the time and I must have tuned it out.

^^^ +1!!! My thoughts exactly, well said. Like @MKtheater said not too long ago ...best thread on AVS!! (not to take anything away from the Ultimate List of Bass in Movies thread of course). This just adds to it and fixes so many tracks, along with all the other awesomeness on this thread that goes with it!!

Last Night I re-played "IT" and found some Single Digit wobbles I never noticed before,
Very subtle and probably right around 8Hz I'm guessing based on the Graph



Several times it sneaks up on you when the kids are all in the Well House, so subtle but very effective with the Crowsons!!!

I replayed the scenes several times, at one point had to turn the lights up to see the Funk's in full on Wobble Mode,
Very similar to the Chinook Scene from Lone Survivor, the Funk 18.0's are good down to 10Hz but could not hit my MLP with enough tactile force on their own.

I cancelled my order yesterday on the Big 24.0 Funk sub

Two more Crowsons (4 Total) will be all I need, along with my current near field 15" Velodynes, for near field tactile effect.
Plus I won't have to crank my MV to reference levels and wake the neighbors on movie nights.

Yes, you Crowson guys can now officially say "I told you so".
I Thank You All! ...and so does my wallet

There is a subtle wobble effect in the beginning of Kong, when the soldier runs into the cliff and stops suddenly. I wonder what frequnecy that occurs at?

^^^ Well Pio I went ahead a gave that a like even though I really wanted you to get that 24” (living vicariously through you ). Awesome on the MA’s and 'IT' though. MA’s for the win …go MA’s lol

Seriously though, the Crowsons are just so good in what they add!!

I like the infernal scheme too for how it highlights stronger parts. It feels a little harsh though. I'm not sure though how that could be softened without losing the meaning.

Sits and fits perfectly on top of the Oppo 203 with the external HD on top of it for the MKV's:

And last but not least, I've been saving the BEQ config files for each movie in the 10x10 once I have them setup (thanks for the tip @biga6761 ). I'd like to create them for all the movies I have. Once entered into the mini for the first time and then saved, it works like a charm to load them fast whenever I want to demo a movie or watch it again ...

If you guys have the HD mini version, you might want to give the WI-DG ago. Awesome little device!!!
You guys are such bad influences. I just got off the phone from ordering a 24" sub. Now I want a 10x10 and the wifi adapter too. I'll probably pick up the WI-DG the next time eBay has one of their 20% coupons.

The BEQ config files got me thinking. I need to start saving mine since I haven't been doing that. The idea I just had though is that I think I'm going to pre-make them for the movies that we've BEQed already that I own to have them ready to go and then make them available for other people to download and use. Would there be interest in that? I'm thinking I'll just put it up as a repo on GitHub for easy access and collaboration if anyone wanted to add to it or add them for the 10x10, non-HD 2x4, etc.

The BEQ config files got me thinking. I need to start saving mine since I haven't been doing that. The idea I just had though is that I think I'm going to pre-make them for the movies that we've BEQed already that I own to have them ready to go and then make them available for other people to download and use. Would there be interest in that? I'm thinking I'll just put it up as a repo on GitHub for easy access and collaboration if anyone wanted to add to it or add them for the 10x10, non-HD 2x4, etc.
Lol yeah this place has a way of making us add new gear!!

Congrats on the 24” order! Nice! Now look who’s being a bad influence ..I do want one (or two) some day!

Well the problem with creating the config files and sharing them is that it will be system specific. Meaning when you save a BEQ config on the mini for your system (and whichever mini you have 2x4, 10x10, HD or other) you will be saving all your other PEQ for normal use too in the config file (whatever you need for peaks, dips, house curve, delays etc) that are probably on the output side while all the BEQs will be on the input side. When you save a config file for say “Ready Player One BEQ”, it will also include all your PEQ and adjustments for baseline system settings on the output side as well as the BEQs on the input side. Cool for your own use though and works fantastic. Until you re calibrate, add another sub or whatever that requires different PEQ settings for you normal bass config.

I was thinking about that too. I guess if we all were wiling to move all the house curve, delays, etc to the outputs it could work. We'd have to move everything from 1 or 2 inputs to 1-4 outputs (for 4 channel miniDSP's), but it would only be one time and it would free up all 10 inputs slots. Some of the BEQ's can use 6-8 as it is. Before I switched a few things, I had 3 slots used for PEQ's and 2 more for my house curve, so for complex BEQ's I was already skipping one or two, or goosing a few over 5 db to make it work.

Well that could work, but not as a 'Config' save, because its saving your BEQ and everything else for your specific calibration and system.

But could work saving the BEQ portion of it as an Import file to add on your input side. I was actually going to do that, but couldn't ever get the LS filter to show a Q value when entering in the BEQ filters when creating them. Works great for PEQ peak filters, but not LS's. Someone better at this than me though could probably make it work. That's why I just started saving them as a 'Config' that is easy to load. But then it becomes user system calibration and setup specific in addition to just the BEQ filters.

Edit: I may be the only one who does this, but I sometimes make tweaks here or there to BEQ's if I feel it works better on my particular setup and preferences and gets saved into the file. Again, user and system specific which works great saved as a 'config' file.

True, I'm at working and was spitballing. I was hoping that the save files might be able to be done for just input or output to avoid this issue. I'll take a look at the save files this weekend. I'm wondering if they might be editable so that I could write a script that takes an input file with the BEQ and an output file that has the house info and combine them. It would let us do the shared repo then. I'd take a look now but I left my laptop at home and don't have the miniDSP stuff on my work one.

It reminds me too that I need to flip my configs before the new sub comes. I had been using the output for BEQ since each sub was on it's own input.

Understood, just took a quick screengrab of your pic and turned it over, to see how it would look.

Not sure what looks more logical though: 0hz at the top or bottom

the problem with a very squashed scale is that it will inevitably leave gaps between the markers, to avoid this you'd either need wider markers (hard to implement, or more specifically hard to implement so that it functions reliably across screen sizes/layouts) or higher frequency resolution which leads to reduced temporal resolution. The black gaps between markers really significantly reduces the perceived intensity IMV. It then becomes basically a "which one fills more of the screen" as the no BEQ has a big black expanse which really is no more information than the existing PvA view (and should be taken as a given anyway because that is why BEQ exists).

The other thing, and this is one for the MBM crew, being able to see the full subwoofer bandwidth is a good thing to see as then you can see how the newly found extension compares to the existing midbass content.

This implies to me something like the existing view (freq vs time) but 1-80Hz and relatively narrow (to ensure we get the markers to join up) is the way to go.

I did think at one point about writing a webapp for sharing that content but don't have the time & a git(hub) repo would also do the job with much less effort.

I would be quite simple to add that sort of upload capability to the app too.

I wholeheartedly agree about eliminating the gaps between the markers since it would reduce the perceived intensity. That was exactly my motivation in requesting a wider marker, as I could already easily fill the vertical gaps, but not the horizontal gaps, and I really didn't want to increase the height of the markers at all because I was already overlapping vertically even with the smallest marker size.

I'm not opposed to upping the range from 1-45Hz to 1-80Hz. What I liked about 45Hz is that it made the gridlines every 5Hz which made it quite easy to hone in on what frequency a data point was at. If I go above 45Hz the gridlines go to every 10Hz, which isn't terrible.

With the window sized to fill my entire screen vertically, as narrow as the app will let me go horizontally, and with a range of 1-80Hz, the smallest marker size overlaps vertically, and it takes the largest marker size to overlap horizontally. This led me to believe that a marker that is as wide as the largest marker and as tall as the smallest marker would possibly give the best of both worlds.

I realize I might be taking it a bit too far in your mind, but I'm just trying to nail down a really nice standard that will work well for all cases and strikes a good balance of time resolution and markers that aren't too small. Another thing I've thought about, in the interest of accounting for all cases, is how to handle the super hot peaks that exist in some films above -10dB. Should we leave room in the color scale for them by making the scale 0dB to -70dB or -5dB to -70dB, or are we okay having everything -10dB and above the same color?

Here's an example of Ready Player One with 1-80Hz range and the largest marker size:



I think it looks great, I just don't think it shows the impact of the BEQ as well as the more zoomed in version:



Of course, this second version is suffering from the gaps between the markers, so that is making it look worse, but if we imagine a version of this but with wider markers so that there aren't any gaps, I think it just shows the impact of the BEQ more, since in the vast majority of BEQs the impact is all below 20-30Hz.

Man what a great thread this is. I have used a few of these BEQ's and am adding more and more to my quick load up library when watching. Thanks Aron these BEQ's you have made have been fantastic to bring that added missing foundation back into the movie. And what an amazing job you did with Atomic Blonde. Wow that was magical. So thank you for making my theater experience become what I always felt it was missing which is why I used a House curve for so long but this helps that not be needed as much.

Hello Aron ,
I have a request I was wondering if you could BEQ the movies "The Hitman" and Hitman 2 please if you could sometime soon if you have time
thank you much for starting this wonderful thread and all the hard work you put into it and the BEQ's
Thanks again,
Chris
