I hope there aren't any Scottish idiots at the end asking about the use of IC's in Audio electronics. :? :razz:

thanks for the link Denis. I downloaded the files last night and burnt a cdr. I listened to it today on a long drive and it helped change my mood, up to then I was having a very bad day.

cheers,
Ruairi

Thanks for posting this link.

There is a very important piece of information that Mr. Neve shares, I think, that we need to understand more fully. His listening experiment with high frequency sine and square waves.

There is still some stuff though which I personally disagree with, especially after discussing the whole "Geoff Emerick un-terminated mic pre transformer" story with Martyn aka Barclaycon at the London meet-up.

I think the whole deal with "hearing" ultrasonic frequencies is simplifying the whole deal of bandwidth and audio performance. There wasn't any mention of phase issues which occur when filtering/resonance is present in an audio circuit which undeniably has an effect on the perceived sound.

I think I recall someone mentioning teh switch-off of analogue radio at the end of the lecture too. Eh?! Where did they hear that?

Still, it was an enjoyable lecture, and I learned a bit too.

Peter, and Cainster, thanks. I just sprayed my monitor in uncontrolled hysterics...

Roddy, that's interesting. RN has been discussing this subject for about 10 years in his lectures. Very controversial. I sympathize with the concept, not sure about the details. That un-terminated mic pre transformer in the Neve desk, if it's the story I've heard before about hearing/sensing supersonics, is also legendary. So you met with someone at the London meet and he debunked it? Or explained it? Or is it just story telling from RN?

Sorry - missed that post. Well, and unterminated transformer.... Phase shift at the top-end, and probably some (audible) modulation of the audio band.

Anyway, we have a George Massenburg meeting coming up:

http://www.aes.org/sections/uk/meetings/index.html#0509

And a surround-sound for broadcasting meeting by BBC R&D which should be cool. I did a Dolby surround course the other day with Tektronix and Dolby, and it was quite interesting. I didn't realise that we are now broadcasting "without" dynamic range compression, and now leaving a flag set in the Dolby stream to decide what compression ratio/threshold/curve to use depending on what programme material category is selected.

Where does it mention GM, Roddy? I haven't been a regular at lectures for a few years now, but I'll make an effort for that one.
