Previously in the dynamics of music, we saw the difference between the dynamics of the medium and the dynamics of the music, as well as the effects of dynamic compression on the music in terms of distortion.Today, we will approach another aspect, that of the impact of the dynamics on the recording on tape orContinue reading “Does analog media force a dynamic on music? or Does Analog Media increase the dynamics?”

Loudness war, the limit of the 0dB in digital or Analog better than Digital?
By convention, in digital, the 0 dB level is the highest possible level, impossible to go above this “absolute zero”. This is why the values are given by counting down from 0 dB, -10 dB as in the example below. From digital point of view, the 0 dB corresponds to the highest possible value accordingContinue reading “Loudness war, the limit of the 0dB in digital or Analog better than Digital?”
Dynamics of the media and music
The dynamics, i.e. the difference between the lowest and the highest level, is an important element of music. However it is important to distinguish the dynamics of the media (CD, vinyl, tape, SACD, digital file) and the dynamics of the track of music itself which can be independent of the media. Let us start withContinue reading “Dynamics of the media and music”
