What is a "warm" sound?
Reply #50
Hello, I think I can accurately answer your question as I'm a music mastering engineer who deals with this on a daily basis. All terms that describe sound are subjective, but with warm, it generally means an abundance of audio in the 250 hz range. Warm audio tends to be compressed a bit differently as well, and often has some saturation (read distortion). This saturation is pleasant sounding and though, typically not containing any information above say 1k. Again, it's subjective though- I'm sure many will disagree, but in my experience and with hundreds of clients asking for "warm" - this tends to be what they all mean.

Maybe these are good examples:
brown noise = warm sound
pink noise = perfect sound
blue noise = cold sound
