How Well Can You Hear Audio Quality?
VASI posted a topic in General DiscussionRecently, the rapper Jay Z relaunched the subscription streaming music service Tidal, which includes the option to listen to high-definition audio for $19.99 per month. Tidal's HiFi, with its uncompressed audio files, promises a better listening experience than any other streaming service on the market. Many listeners cannot hear the difference between uncompressed audio files and MP3s, but when it comes to audio quality, the size of the file isn't (ahem) everything. There are plenty of other ingredients to consider, from the quality of your headphones to the size of the room you're sitting in to, well, your own ears. http://www.npr.org/sections/therecord/2015/06/02/411473508/how-well-can-you-hear-audio-quality
Np 1 lithium testingHi I´ve been testing Np 1 Lithium Li-ion Ultimate NPLU-84. 14.8 V 84 Wh from Pink Noise. New battery and fully charge with my old IDX KL-4 charger. The test was Sound Devices 664 with 2 mic. phantom power ( Schoeps MK 41 and Sennheiser MKH 70). And power for two Audio Limit 2040. At 8.15 AM I arm four tracks and hit the recorder button . I was recording constantly and stop for lunch12.30 PM where I power down the lot. At 13.10 PM I power up everything and was recording again constantly. At 17:00 PM I have my first warning for low power. I keep on recording and at 18.20 the SD 664 stop. Warning low power not able to record. The SD 664 keep the files intact. Very nice. Note I was recording indoor, 20 Celsius ( 68 F ) I was recording 9 hours and 25 min with one NP1 , two phantom power mic ( 48 V ) and power for two Audio Limit 2040 receiver. I do find this very good, and looking forward to try them outside in the cold winter time here in Denmark. ms
As I Hear It - Choosing the Right Microphone
David Chakman posted a topic in EquipmentHere's a little something I found today while clearing out some old bookmarks - an in depth look at a few of the usual (and maybe not so usual) shotgun, hyper, super and cardioid suspects. Now, I did not write this and to be perfectly honest I don't know if I would agree with some of the stuff that this guys says (admittedly, he is a video guy apparently) but I thought it did make interesting reading and there are some decent samples recordings with each mic that he reviews. Apologies if this has been posted before, I did do a search (yes, on google) with no results, so here goes.. http://www.kenstone.net/fcp_homepage/right_mic_brockett.html Enjoy - Chak
