Audio Production and Critical Listening: Technical Ear by Jason Corey

By Jason Corey

Making judgements approximately how and while to use sound processing results and recording strategies could make or holiday your music combine. the choices you're making come right down to your listening skills--what you pay attention and the way you understand it. Your skill to correctly parent sound, determine an issue and act therefore, specifically while the choice has to be made quick, makes all of the distinction to the luck of the ultimate song.

Audio construction and demanding Listening develops your severe and specialist listening abilities, permitting you to hear audio like an award-winning engineer. The interactive "ear training" software program perform modules offer you event determining a number of forms of sign procedures and manipulation--EQ, dynamics, reverb, distortion, hold up, and extra. The software program sits along the transparent and designated causes within the publication, supplying a whole studying package deal that can assist you teach your ears to hear and very "hear" your recordings.

Whereas high- and lowpass filters can only remove a range of frequencies, shelving equalizers can boost or attenuate by varying degrees a range of fre­quenc­ies. This range of frequencies extends downward from the cut-off frequency for a low-shelf, or it extends upward from the cut-off frequency for a high-shelf filter. Probably they are most commonly used as tone controls in consumer home or car sound systems. Consumers can alter the spectral balance of their home sound reproduction systems through the use of tone controls and “bass” and “treble” control, which are usually shelving filters with a fixed frequency.

Each stage highlights factors that influence a signal’s spectral balance—both physical and perceptual—through the path. recorder, each type and model of monitor and loudspeaker offers a unique frequency response. Because engineers rely on monitors to judge the spectral balance of audio signals, the frequency and power response of monitors can indirectly alter the spectral balance of the audio signals. Listening to a recording through monitors that have a weak low-frequency response, an engineer may have a tendency to boost the low frequencies in the recorded audio signal.

3 Sound Levels and Spectral Balance The sound level of a sound reproduction system plays a significant role in the perception of spectral balance. The wellknown equal-loudness contours by Fletcher and Munson (1933) illustrate that not only does the human auditory Chapter 2 Spectral balance and equalization system have a wide variation in its frequency response, but also that this response changes according to sound reproduction level. In general, the ear is less sensitive to low and high frequencies, but as sound level is increased, the ear becomes more sensitive to these same frequencies, relative to midfrequencies.
