  1. The clipping was pick attack so yeah, it sounded less harsh when de-clipped and played by itself but once the bass was put in the mix and EQ'd, it's pretty hard to tell a difference. You still playing these days? Any new recordings or vids?
  2. Hi max, long time no see. Hope you're doing well as well as the rest of you guys here on DB. I found something that I think is pretty cool that might interest you. It's a VST plugin (typically used in DAW's for recording) by iZotope that takes a clipped signal and "de-clips" it: For example I put down a bass part and intentionally clipped it: Close up of the clipped signal: After applying the de-clipper: After de-clipping zoomed in: Anybody who was bothered by a clipped soundtrack could put the separated channels into a DAW like Audacity, apply this, export it to disc and then apply max's BEQ to it to bring out the best of the low stuff. Just an idea... I know that it's a lot of work and that the production houses should just give us a proper product but it is what it is. Anyway, keep cool fellas... let the bass be with you and whatnot.

    Spectre Discussion and Poll

    Was it just me or was there an octopus sex scene in the intro credits? What kind of an F'd up brain thinks of that?

    Spectre DTS-HD MA 7.1 Starts off within the first ten minutes with the loudest transient at -2.95dB from a WCS. A higher level mix than the past few big movies with mostly explosion rumble and only a couple lower level transient hits. Not the worst rumble I've heard/seen but there's nothing noteworthy at or below 20Hz and pretty stock sounds in the sub band. 0:05:56 1:55:55 1:57:05 2:13:40 See rest of SL shots here: http://data-bass.ipbhost.com/index.php?/topic/528-spectre-discussion-and-poll/?p=12703

    (8) Sealed Incriminator Audio Judge 21" build

    You have the impedance graph. Test the voltage to the cabs with each amp at 10Hz and you can tell us how much power your distributing with your current options. Measure the excursion of the driver with the amp that wins that test to see how much there would be to gain with an additional sp12k.

    (8) Sealed Incriminator Audio Judge 21" build

    Had anyone been paying attention to the SL mic'd that was familiar with the SL digital for using that scene as a demo is what he meant. That was the first time that I've ever seen any part of that movie so I was pretty much in the dark. Since then, I've analyzed the whole movie and I believe that it's soundtrack was mixed very poorly. The studio had no software for monitoring levels (or a playback system that could reproduce) sub 20Hz so they should have been experienced enough to put a filter on the heli track. http://data-bass.ipbhost.com/index.php?/topic/425-analyzing-waveforms-of-heavy-hitting-movies/?p=11801 The scene in question is -3.43dB from a WCS. I measured Beast's AVR at the GTG and it clips the sub out on WCS's when they are attenuated by less that 10dB. As Beast just said "I will point out in further testing that at the levels we were nearing at the g2g was likely ref, with a +10dB boost on the LFE channel, and then gage subsequently bumped the gain on the sub another 3-5dB." The AVR's sub out to the torpedo amp was probably nearing 10dB into clipping. That is pretty hard clipped in itself but the amp more likely than not added to that. Anyone here know how the SP torpedo's front end would handle a signal like that? What about pushing the gain on the amp 3-5dB on top of that input signal? Nobody here knows exactly what kind of signal that amp was outputting but it's a pretty safe guess to assume that it looked like binary. I'm sure I don't have to explain to the guys in this thread what that does to RMS heat to the coil. Gage wanted to push his stuff hard at the GTG and aside from the toxic fumes, I thought it was pretty epic. Back on track: Luke, have you tested your SP12k on all 8 yet at full output and that's why you are leaning towards getting another 12k? I would guess with the deep, low extended sine wave content you enjoy listening to, 3k per driver might be a bit dangerous. Like you said, "It doesn't take 4kw of clipped power for a full minute to fry a rugged and well designed/built driver. 4kw of clean power for the same minute will do that job just fine." The difference between 3k and 4k is only 1.2dB.

    That was this guy ^ This is the highest voltage peak of the movie. I heard that distortion sound you are talking about too. I think that sound was added into the mix for effect. They were probably mixing square waves into the layers.

    Everest Atmos dowmixed to 7.1 Let's get ready to RUUUUMMMBLE!!! Lots of filtered in the 30's rumble with only a handful of not very noteworthy blips of 20Hz and down sneaking through the mix at a lower level. Also the movie was so depressing it made me want to off myself like Ronda Rousey. -4.79dB from a WCS 1:16:50 1:18:36 1:20:50 1:26:59 See here for rest of SL shots: http://data-bass.ipbhost.com/index.php?/topic/12-the-low-frequency-content-thread-films-games-music-etc/?p=12301

  11. What a bunch of ULF pansies. Might be right though, this video kind of blew my mind (it has to do with ULF in a very similar way as the above story)

    I'll keep an eye out for it. Is it a good flick?
  13. It's been over a decade since the release of WotW, why wouldn't I expect every large budget action flick to have 5 star extension in the year 2016? Here is Spectre on top of the 1st Avengers movie which as max accurately stated was: "the biggest LF disappointment of all time". Pretty obvious what they're going for with this one.
