How Robust Is Audio Perception in the Face of Deliberate Magnitude and Phase Distortions? (Part 3) In the first post of this three-part series, I listed four points that I hope my readers will agree with at the end of this series. The second post addressed the first two points of the four. In this post, Part Three of the series, I will demonstrate the final two points: Phase distortions generally… View Article
How Robust Is Audio Perception in the Face of Deliberate Magnitude and Phase Distortions? (Part 2) In this post I will demonstrate that dramatically different time domain waveforms can lead to virtually the same audio perception, and two waveforms with identical spectrograms can sound quite different.
Did the Manhattan Transfer Use Auto-Tune? I recently came across an allegation on Amazon.com that got me thinking. The review in question is by Andrew Grobengieser, and it is critical of the Manhattan Transfer’s latest album, The Chick Corea Songbook. Grobengieser alleges: As a lifetime fan, I was unbelievably excited to hear of the release of a Chick Corea songbook. And… View Article
Why is the Compact Disk Sample Rate 44.1kHz? During a recent conference call discussing audio sampling rates, the question came up: Why do CDs use a sampling rate of 44.1 kHz? The 2 Most Common CD Sampling Rates: 44.1kHz & 48kH First, a little background: When you sample an audio waveform, you have a choice as to how many samples you take per… View Article
