New loudspeakers & room digital correction service


Recommended Posts

Making progress :)

 

Realized that AUs were working In Audirvana 3.5 on my main system last night.

 

Deleted 3.5 on my laptop and re-installed this morning.  AUs, including real-time control working again.  Great.

 

Was feeling stupid about the "load" button in the Soundstage Shaper.  Wished I had taken a screen shot, but believe me, it wasn't there!  Deleted and re-downloaded the plugin, installed, now it is there:

Now I am cooking.  First impressions are great, primarily re. body and tone.  The crossfeed effect is very subtle.  I think this will be ok.  It has mainly been something I have pursued previously for older, hard pan-potted recordings (early Beatles for example).  I think Meier's description of a close-in "pressure sensation" in the ear is apt.  This sensation is relieved in a subtle way with the plugin.   I have always abandoned crossfeed before as I didn't like the shifts in tonality/frequency response, especially with more natural recordings. I am happy to report that seems completely absent with Thierry's plugin.  I only want to perceive the room acoustics of well-recorded classical and jazz, no attempts at providing additional room acoustics effects.

 

Thank you for your work, Thierry.

Thanks for reporting you are back to whole again!   When my tunes are not working properly I’m a grouchy SOB!..When my  tunes are working everything is alright with the world!

 

I’m looking forward to giving these a try myself!

 

Thanks!

Forgot a question.  EQ after the plugin.  I use it for headphone EQ (HD650s).  Minimum phase.  I also do minimum phase upsampling.  My suspicion, especially after working with the configurator, is that phase is an important part of what you are doing(?).

 

Best to leave it out?

LP in the high-end only?  I suspect that if the ringing effects of LP EQ is problematic, it is more at LFs.

MP at low frequency and LP at high frequencies?

Yes @LarryMagoo!  I was getting to that point!

 

And everything is right now as I watch the Euros out of the corner of my eye while listening :)

 

Very much recommend trying it out.

Phase plays in important role for the "ambience" generation. The sources re-positioning part of the process is linear phase.

 

You can keep a post EQ as long as it is common for left & right channels. I like the iso loudness approach (match headphones vs loudspeaker) promoted by David Griesinger. You can try it using his plugin or my own tool available here (my tool gives the option to correct your loudspeaker to have a fully flat frequency response when determining your iso loudness curve)
