    Hello everyone, We have spent the past 6 years working on something that has never been done before: calibrating a two mic pure stereo fixed recording setup to achieve transparency. The recordings made with this system do not need any kind of treatment. With no equalization, no mixing, no...

    The albums are now in the hands of the distributors. It is just a matter of time that they start appearing all over the different platforms. We gave the distributor a 16bit 44.1kHz version of the music (there was no other option). Each platform will have to get its own streaming and download...

    I have been looking into this kick drum issue, ...I think I might know what you are referring to. I did fix one thing, but I cannot be sure if that is the thing that you were noticing. I am sending you a PM with the code to download the files see if this fix resolves the issue.

    yes, that is right, this one is coherent the other one was not. But they both will reach the same SPL when played in stereo. You should play the file on stereo and adjust volume to get 75dB at listening point. That would be our stage volume.

    I have uploaded new SPL files. This time I have used the official Dolby DMU pink noise to make the stereo file. Nothing has changed. The level is the same as with the first tone, but this one looks better :) You can download it on the original post: #95

    The pink noise was generated with the ProTools software. That is the one I used to measure the SPL, ...so I guess we are ok as long as we all use the same one :) Yes, we did record it from behind. The drummer suggested we placed the drums this way so that he could hear the cymbals and drums...

    I finally have the SPL file. Sorry it took so long. You can use this SPL file to calibrate the volume of your system to the volume of the actual performance. The file is a 40 second stereo pink noise at -20dB. You can download it on any of our regular formats (Master, DVD, CD, MP3) While...

    That is good news, if your adjustments are working for most recordings my guess is you have manage to bring your playback system very close to delivering a flat frequency response. I know our recordings are supposed to work best when played back that way and, on average, all other commercial...

    Hi fas42, Thanks for your feedback :) Here is something that I think is very interesting about what you just said: You used the rock recording to "tune" your system. All those "little tweaks" you turned on got the rock sample to sound right. Here is the interesting thing; those same tweaks...

    Hi Amir, We are already doing that. (that is what I was referring to on post #52) Basically this is what we did: We worked the acoustics of our hall until we got an "almost flat frequency response" from the sound sources on the stage to the place where the mics are located. (That would be the...

    ok, I have just read though all the posts I missed.... We always use the same gain on all our recordings. (except for the drums and rock) The albums and the flamenco all have real relative levels. So once you find a realistic master volume level you should be able to listen to all the albums...
