Re: 32Bit Dial vs 24 Bit Dial

No, none whatsoever!

Re: Catchin' SYNC iOS app now with high fps

No, as I understand it, +-8ms (roughly 1/4 of a frame) was the error margin for the iPhone 5, that figure was published on their website some time ago and hasn't been updated since this new version...

Re: Catchin' SYNC iOS app now with high fps

You state that the app has an error window of +-8ms, does running a 5S at 120fps with Catchin' Sync improve that error window and if so do you have any figures?

Re: Dialogue Editing and Playlists

I sort of use playlists. In the case of Dialogue I put a copy of the original takes on inactive tracks. If I apply any Audiosuite processing to the comped/edited DX, before I apply the processing...

Re: I'm so good at Pro Tools

I'm so good at ProTools that I can finish a mix before PT can scan for an iLok.

I'm so good at ProTools I overloaded the NSA with metadata.

I'm so good at ProTools because I've got a 64bit...

Re: Pro Limiter AAX DSP

A compressor has a ratio setting which defines how much of a signal is allowed to pass beyond a user defined ceiling (threshold). A limiter is designed to "limit" the signal completely, so that none...

Re: Pro Limiter AAX DSP

Thank you Ryan for your detailed response. If I do get a QC failure on an LKFS reading, I do at least have some plausible explanation (the QC dept using an out of date BS1770 revision), rather than...

Re: Pro Limiter AAX DSP

While the Pro Limiter manual is a little confused with regard to K weighting and K scale, that is not what I was referring to and not one of the points Mike Thornton raised.

LUFS and LKFS are...

Re: Pro Limiter AAX DSP

Mike:- I might be wrong but I don't think Ryan was saying there is a 1dB tolerance or difference between a ProLimiter R128 measurement and translating that figure to A85. I believe he meant there is...

Re: True-peak limiters.

Oversampling is certainly a large part of the additional overhead but lookahead and dealing with the ultrasonic content usually created by limiting also requires additional CPU.

The TP limiters...

Re: Pro Limiter AAX DSP

As I understand it, the ATSC A85 spec does not include gating which means if you're mixing a program without large dynamic differences you should get pretty much the same reading with EBU R128 as...

Re: Does the clocking matter when mixing in the box?

No!



Unless you are using PTHD with a Sync I/O or Sync HD to sync audio with video then you did buy your Big Ben for nothing. Clocking an interface externally is never superior to using the ...

Re: "Missing iLok authorization" error for MAC USERS

Yes, a substantial number of people need to move their authorisations around quickly, although probably this is more common in Post than in music. I quite often take the iLok out of my studio Mac Pro...

Re: "Missing iLok authorization" error for MAC USERS

You ask a very sensible question, for which there is a very sensible answer. But then you slam PT and it's iLok authorisation before finding out what the answer to your question actually is, and...

Re: 32 Bit Float

Huh? Dither is an entirely digital process and can therefore only be applied to a digital signal, so obviously you cannot dither before conversion. Dither occurs, as far as I am aware, during the...

Re: 32 Bit Float

Sorry but this is not true. The quantisation error is randomised in the ADC with dither, resulting in uncorrelated white noise somewhere down below about -140dB. This white noise would be...

Re: 32 Bit Float

I'm afraid you are wrong. Far more sophisticated marketing than the previous example posted of a "32 bit" converter but exactly the same outcome for exactly the same reasons. An example of this...

Re: 32 Bit Float

If you think you can hear the difference between 16bits of signal in a 16bit file format and the same 16bits in a 24bit or 32bit format file then you are the hilarious one. Good luck with that!

Re: 32 Bit Float

There are definite advantages to higher bit depths for signal paths and processing. However, for you to say you hear a difference between 24bit and 32bit float when recording means either 1. You have...
