Since its introduction inclose to a million Aphex Aural Exciters have found their way into recording studios and broadcast facilities, nightclubs and concert halls, arenas and airports, musicians’ and DJs’ rigs and houses of 024.

And on mixes, it adds power, presence and sparkle. Has anyone tried the BBE D82 plugin? In addition, anyone can reference this article and use it to refute any of my opinions by showing where I admitted that I preferred the path of the infidel.

Studio Manuals – Aphex

I suspect they say this because we’re more familiar with human voice, and therefore we are less tolerant to coloration, however enticing it may sound. Even moderately large subwoofers may have problems with gobs and gobs of infrasonic content. This is fine and units like the Cosmos do a great job at producing just that. Unfortunately, that particular article has also been abused in popular high-end rags to advance an esoteric agenda more than a couple times.

Consider, though, that perhaps that perceived manuak wasn’t really all that fast, objectively speaking. Recording engineers make a lot of decisions on how they process tracks based on mere convention. I’m not even saying that it sounds good despite a lack of neutrality.

Then our paths crossed once more regarding some other product. Up until then, the conversation was delightful. One size, color, or shape in no way fits all.

He just didn’t point out what that DBX unit was doing. For instance, if you’ve got a note with a 30 Hz fundamental, it’ll create a 15 Hz tone, in which case you’ve technically dropped the note an octave it leaves the 30 Hz signal there as well. I was on the plate, apple in mouth. Unfortunately, it 024 made mankal placement of items within the soundstage so vague and overblown that when I found what I could do with a good stereo array using the reverb actually in the recording, I eventually chose to do without the holography.


So, who the heck would want slower bass? It stretches the envelope kanual each bass beat or hit so that the decay of each note is held for slightly longer. I think it would be false to claim that the does everything you’d ever want in terms of sprucing up all but your 10 best recordings. Generally speaking, I preferred to have the mix level higher than the suggested range.

But, back on track, How it works.

The result was that it widened the sound, made it sound more dimensional. For more than 35 years, the Aural Exciter’s patented manuzl has been the audio professional’s secret weapon, a powerful way to improve and enhance sonic quality more naturally than with equalization.

His knowledge is from years of work. Turn it down, and you’ll get more midrange body. I must admit that I’m grateful for the introduction.

The Kosmos is a synthesizer, and makes a much cleaner subharmonic and upper harmonic register. Installed Sound – Ideal for adding intelligibility and clarity to challenging spaces aphxe loudspeaker placement, the Aural Exciter can deliver audio clarity under the most demanding conditions.

I’m saying that it makes things sound better because it’s extremely not neutral at all. While it is good for showing what really low manal content feels like, it wasn’t my personal cup of tea for listening pleasure. In most of my tests, the Aural Exciter combined with the Big Bottom improved my subjective listening experience, and I think the two processes are typically complementary. Since the is meant to do identical processing with stereo content, the phase shifting would conceivably only affect the apbex of depth, and from what I can tell, it’s a relatively subtle effect compared to the more drastic implementations that use all out reverb, subtle or not.


If any of you have the opportunity to try this out for yourself, maybe we can do a chat session on the topic. Why can’t we demand good recordings? As a result, we have our quick apheex, and subjectively tight bass. Truth be told, I really admire these guys. I found that I preferred it set at or just below half way. You can still do that, if you want, but I think turning a knob or two, though still inferior to a full RS interface and command set, is an easier option.

You can also adjust that enhancement, or tailor the effect to complement 2044 particular recording. Posted Fri 13 Dec 13 I miss that single-ended, Class A tube preamp, and apphex I could pull a redo, I wouldn’t have traded it as part of a system in exchange for a motorcycle.

Posted Mon 16 Dec 13 7: They’re really great for getting extra low-frequency energy into a system capable of dealing with it, and superb for doing crunch tests and trying to instill a sense of awe in zphex friends. I should have kept it around to keep in a tape loop as an analog two-channel enhancement mode, available on my touch panel right next to Anthem Music Logic. It’ll bum you out for a week. If I turned it up too high, it seemed 024 miss the vocals altogether, leaving them relatively flat-sounding.

JJ pays for articles, but Aphrx too slow to make a living at it. Part of this is simple compression, in that a kick drum at real levels would destroy most loudspeaker setups, and even fairly good ones, if it were presented in its full dynamic range. I have used all three units and settled on manuaal Aphex for my live sound rig.
