WARM OF ANALOG SOUND vs. DIGITAL: MYTH or REALITY? (2)
Another fun exercise: we want to raise the low-frequency level (e.g. +6 dB for Fr below 150 Hz) of a digital audio source.
Classic and fast method (e.g. Logic under OSX): use the configurable equalizer for a "static" correction.
As the source already has a Peak level close to 0 dBFS, I lower the set by -6 dB, to have the necessary margin for this selective gain in the bass.
The next step is to perform the same type of static correction via my 100% digital Bass Corrector ... which emulates a "vintage" Analog behavior.
Fixed correction of the same intensity ... but not at all the same "fat" at the bottom of the spectrum !
The last test proposes an alternative via a "homemade" dynamic correction, which brings a more "crunchy" sound color, and allows to gain 3 dB of margin (if needed).
Of course, I made sure that no peaks are clipped (except those already on the source file).
