Composer's assistant for film composer Carter Burwell and music producer.

I am audio person not math/DSP. But generally in audio one wants to keep the highest sample and bit rate possible at all times. If you have these 'ambient' noise...
My work has been for the film composer Carter Burwell, and for the notable productions I will refer you to the IMDB.com database as there are many and interesting.And...
I also have to note that this information is incredibly helpful:"If you add two signals, one of which is big relative to the other, the accuracy of the smaller...
Astounding information. I thank you for taking the time to explain in these terms, thank you. I grasp it's practical implementations and my incorrect notions of...
Very comprehensive and exactly to my practical application. And patient, thank you.So at 32-bit processing the internal DSP is not clipping even though the meters...
Yep. Agree - if the Pro Tools meters and wave form specify and indicate clipping, one would think they are clipping. If the file is printed clipped, it is clipped.I...
Thank you Thread contributors.Points taken on DAW and internal DSP 32 processing. Thank you - question at bottom.Metering in DAW can also be various, and misleading...
One last summary for the archive - clearly I am not claiming 100% truth, just a narrative of what might be happening in some cases.Deliberate digital limiting soft...
Thank you I appreciate that. Looking back through the thread here I feel I have a much better understanding of clipping and how DSP might deal with it.From an audio...
"(except for numeric overflow which is NOT happening in modern DAWs)"Is this due to the greater headroom of 32 floating point processing?
Thanks again. I am better informed.Can I put it in terms of wave form shape, maybe it clarifies:A transient wave form that does not clip has a smooth short crest...
Fantastic information. And your descriptions of the sonic effects I corroborate, I grasp you points.In orchestral recording for film, which I do a lot of, we do...
Thank you for your reply. Audio engineering the signal and usage of plugins to achieve analog style saturation and coloration effects is very common and I am very...
Excellent. "DSP process called "limiting" - this is the topic I am interested."narrow peak" - in audio this is likely what we call a 'transient peak' in the approx....
Thank you I appreciate your reply. I can add some more detail in response.This process described "Soft clipping is a method that has a non-linear amplitude curve...
Hello - I read an old thread on how in some circumstances DSP deals with peak digital audio clipping.I have a question regarding how DSP processes clipped audio...
