Digital speed/pitch correction questions

I sometimes do restoration of analog recordings. This often includes correcting the speed due to analog device mayhem in a recording's past.

Naturally when possible, the speed is calibrated on...

Re: Best way to prepare final CD for mastering ?

Give the mastering house the full quality print of the mix in the original format with no conversions.
Ex: Track at 24 bit 96kHz. Mix at 24/96. Deliver 24/96 mix with no conversions or final...

Re: Mastering opinions?

I'm not so much interested in discussing favorite DAW choices or bugs in certain software. The question is in approach.

The CD format is obsolete in that recording studios operate at high res...

Re: Mastering opinions?

Well, this is just another lossy mp3-like thing. The idea is it's better than mp3 (or Apple's AAC) but it's still lossy. The hype I've seen behind this is based on the falsehood that studio quality...

Mastering opinions?

It seems like it might be appropriate to go a bit higher in level (a little into brick-wall with a limiter) for a CD (16/44.1) version of a master compared to the 24/96 or 24/88.2 version which...

Re: Protools 9.05 still deleting & corrupting files. Are you SERIOUS Avid???

The best I can come up with is Protools can get in a weird state with core audio very easily. Protools absolutely throws a fit whenever you switch to a session at a different sample rate from your...

Re: Pro Tools Corrupts My Recordings

Yes, the random 'start recording corrupt audio' feature. It's insidious not knowing if the take you're recording will actually record. Downright pathetic on an 8 core 3.33GHz i7 MacPro that I mix...

Are we only talking about corrupted headers here or are we also discussing the bug where all of a sudden, recorded takes are garbled (a relaunch of PT brings the system back)?

Re: Identify ch order in 5.1 wav from header?

Is there really no field for this? The channel order is just assumed and yet we have 3 different systems?

Identify ch order in 5.1 wav from header?

Is there some flag in the wav file header that identifies which channel order 5.1 file it is? You know, identify L,R,C,Lf,Ls,Rs (music), L,C,R,Ls,Rs,Lf (film) or L,R,Ls,Rs,C,Lf (dts ch order).

Best app for authoring 24/96 5.1 LPCM to blu-ray?

I just don't have the budget for the pro apps like Sonic Solutions. The affordable apps all seem to specifically have the audio features disabled (Toast for example). I tried tsMuxer but it crashes...

Re: Creating multi channel wavs

Oh my! $499 to combine 6 wav files into a single 5.1 wav!!!!! Um... no.

Someone help! I see free apps that split 5.1 files to mono but not the other way around.

PT 7.1 installer
