Good sound and all you need

This article will help you choose the equipment that best suits your tasks. Here we will try to talk not so much about HOW these or those devices are arranged, but about WHAT they do with sound.
Mic preamp
The output voltage of microphones is usually unity, at best tens of millivolts. This signal is very weak, and its quality when transmitting over long cables is greatly deteriorated, not to mention the practical impossibility of connecting one microphone to several consoles and getting good sound at the same time.
Now imagine a situation: you need to voice a concert at a stadium or in a sports palace (with a multi- Continue reading

What is maximizer and why

Maximizer (digital peak limiter) is a dynamic processing device that increases the level of the audio signal during mastering. Sometimes other types of devices are called maximizers, for example, psychoacoustic processing such as BBE Sonic Maximizer – we will not consider them here. We will get acquainted with the principles of operation of dynamic processing devices and compare with each other some popular models of software maximizers.

Volume and levels

The sound volume depends not only on the sound level (or sound pressure), but also on its spectral-temporal composition. If the frequency balance of the phonogram is already determined and it is Continue reading

About vinyl. About the plates

There are not so many good stories with a happy ending in our lives. One of them is the history of gramophone records, or “vinyl”.

It is fundamentally wrong to think that vinyl is something prehistoric. The days of gramophones, gramophones and radio have long passed, and now vinyl “turntables” are very technological devices. This means that the sound quality of an audio system with such a player is at its best. At a very high altitude! To compare the sound received from the records with the CD is an occupation, believe me, thankless. It’s the same as taking a Mercedes first and then changing to Zaporozhets. Listen once, and everything will immediately become clear.

Time for a change

If everything is fine with the sound, then why did the CD almost completely supplant the “vinyl”, you may ask. Why are Continue reading
