Audio Hardware / Re: Room correction (room equilization) questions
Last post by magicgoose -
the picture is probably a measured frequency response.
btw the easiest way to do this is with mathaudio room eq plugin for foobar2000. which is also freeware and has a good tutorial.

also if you use bad microphone, it's possible to get results that are worse than no correction at all, so it really only makes sense with a good linear-FR microphone.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Last post by Revup67 -
Thank you for building this toolbar item.  Under Windows 10 x64 I got this to work.  May I suggest an update to your !readme.txt ?  First the toolbar is not the Windows toolbar (as with Advanced Controls Foobar) but rather the Foobar toolbar which is not obvious possibly for new users.

Right click next to HELP in the Foobar menu then choose "Buttons" as there is no menu item called Deskband Controls.  This was how I can got this component to work.  thank you for your efforts

General Audio / Re: Upscaling MP3 to DSD

From 192/32 wav I can convert to 44/32 wav that looks interesting for me. Despite the double wav size, I can feel the differences between CD and vinyl. Perhaps more clarity, harmonics, tones and soundstage. As you said before, it's a matter of preferences. I am waiting for my Sumiko Pearl TT cartridge bought from U.S., with its great channel separation (30dB) and huge freq response (12Hz-30kHz) to get the full vinyl sound quality. I am not a "audiophile church" worshipper, but I like to listen music in high quality. And I know the analogue sound can be heard only at the concert hall or at the original master tapes, all other are digital for these new reissues or remastered items.

My God you must have a extreme Sense of Hearing? :))
Anyway I am starting to think this debate is turning into another vinyl topic, which never seem to go very far.

ok, let it be. but...
faq page:
"4. I’ve Never Recorded To Tape Before, How Is This Different From Digital?

In many ways, it is not that different. Tape is a storage medium, just like digital is. The main difference is the editing capabilities and the amount of storage available.[...]"
wtf?!? where about Hz, where about Db, where about lifetime... deception for profit ? or just "forgotten" ?

"bouble kill!"
Of course you can hear diff btw cd/vinyl, becouse cd-audio does not contain "garbage". But what you pass off as "quality" is not "quality" - it's just a "feeling".
Does anyone know a Studio that records and processes sound exclusively on analog equipment?

No one here cares whether you can differentiate cd from vinyl or whether you prefer the vinyl version.
