Quite an enhacement, thank you!!
Quote from: Rozzo on 05 June, 2011, 05:43:51 PMQuite an enhacement, thank you!!I am still not 100% sure - I like it, but while the stereo effect in a regular setup is almost always there (falsely, maybe?) the side to side stereo effect seems in ambio very much dependent on the mastering.The back to front effect seems to be a given. as well as the enhanced ability to discern layers within a production - I have heard much better separation of background voices among themselves as well as from the main voice, same with instruments that do not seem to mash as much.The tonal quality of instruments does not seem to be effected, actually it seems to be more natural than with regular stereo, maybe because instruments are portrayed more as separate entities.But on some tracks playback seems to be concentrated in the centre - not really mono, because one still can separate the foreground instruments - like guitar, voice - from what is happening further in the background - drums, percussion etc. One can still tweak the ambio setting and I would like to get some feedback from others what tweaks/settings work for them. I will paste a picture of my settings later.
I am satisfied by using the first vst plugin you adviced with a physical barrier separating both speakers.Thanks,Rozzo
Don’t feel that you have a duty to convert everyone.
Something like this, adapted to my room and speakers:http://pagesperso-orange.fr/pol.bct/exemples/Ambioph2.jpg
It is not just a spatial novelty effect, the music it self wins enormously.I really, after this session, pity anybody who listens in the usual stereo setup. There is simply no comparison, this is the closest one can get to the illusion of a live performance in the studio or in front of the stage.
