EQ changes the levels of the frequencies in an audio signal. It doesn’t change the dynamics of these frequencies though. But it can change the overall dynamics. How?

Maybe I am a bit too neurotic when it comes to sound quality. I have tested many devices using a pure sine wave and checking its frequency spectrum with a spectrum analyser. On other days I felt like “WTF it just sounds great!”
Impulse Responses for cabinet simulation are often offered in sample rate flavours like 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96 kHz. What sample rate should you choose?
Mixing engineers Tchad Blake and Andrew Scheps did a session at winter NAMM 2020 at the Mix with the Masters booth. A super interesting conversation.
Back in the day, I was asked by Propellerhead to design patches for Reason. The Props needed many patches for the Factory Sound Bank and one of the most important type of sounds the Props wanted us sound designers to program was what we call Bread & Butter sounds.
Yesterday a friend of mine asked me about that nasty synth sound Keith Emerson uses on the track Peter Gunn Theme. What’s Keith playing? I’ll show you in Reason …
What we hear is almost by rule different from what is actually sounding, due to the peculiarities and limitations of our hearing. And what we hear can largely differ from what we think we are listening to, due to the many tricks that perception plays on our awareness.
Recently I heard about Loop earplugs. Are they any good? I tried them out for a test…
Loudness is nowadays standardised so that almost all music sounds equally loud. Thanks to the Dutchman Eelco Grimm.
The Spider Audio has a rather nasty bug. But there’s a super simple solution to it.
Is the Mäag EQ the most natural sounding EQ ever? I think so.
I always thought that Audiomatic was some kind of Combinator that cannot be unfolded + additional scripting + Impulse Responses for some of its presets. Mmm…
