Hi Aleksey,

I would like to know if you would consider something Jan mentioned earlier.

#1

===

Displaying Peak hold in the spectrum analyzer.  If the spectrum analyzer could display upto 4 curves that would be fine.  That would allow me to snapshot my current peice I'm trying to balance, a reference piece, a reference curve (like greynoise), and 1 leftover to snapshot my final version.  OK, I could get away with 2 snapshots - you're right !

#2

===

I was also wondering if it would be possible to get your averaging (Monitor button) to include the entire wave - I guess that's infinite average - instead of just 12 seconds or whatever it is.

#3

===

Would it be possible to display a captured spectrum as an overlay ?  I guess you capture the average of the entire wave, maybe that would help with #1.

Sometimes it's better to just push the EQ points in addition to using some spectrumatch (attenuated) leverage.  It would help if the spectrum were able to display the 'destination' curve (peak and average).  Currently I use the Ozone2 spectrum analyzer to get peak and infinite average snapshots.  Then I put CurveEQ in front of Ozone and use a combination of spectrumatch and good old EQ point pushing to match to a 'better' curve (and ears Jan - they're getting better !).  Unfortunately Ozone spectrum doesn't allow magnification like CurveEQ spectrum does...

Thanks

kylen, I understand these points.

As for peak hold, do you think it will be enough to insert an additional montor option?  Having 4 curves is not a decent solution..  It's too messy.

12 second timeframe was chosen for simplicity.  Otherwise there must be some button available that will reset the spectrum.  OK, I think I'll do this way: averaging will last infinitely, but simple left button click on the surface will reset it.  Sounds good enough?

Snapshots are still in plans.  I don't know currently when these will be implemented.  These will be 'subtracted' snapshots for simplicity, and I think they will work with output signal only (no need to subtract from input).

Yes that sounds good.

Yes that sounds great.

Hopefully Jan will come in here and have some comment on this too...

I want some way where I can work on my current track and also display my reference curve be it an infinite average or a peak hold type.  As long as you are allowing me to save a captured spectrum I thought it might be possible to display the captured spectrum also as an overlay.  Then I would have 3 curves displayed - the in, the out, and the captured spectrum.  That way I can either just do a visual comparison or push certain Eq points in to it where I want.  In that case I could get along with just 2 curves displayed - the Out curve and the Captured curve.  Maybe a monitor option that says 'Out and Captured'.

Thanks,

kylen

This would be an excellent feature :-)

With captured curves, the problem is that they are not saved at full spectrum resolution.  CurveEQ's engine derives up to 60 points only.  However, possibly this is enough for tuning.

Oh OK, that's right - it makes sense.

Well 60 points is 1/6 octave or thereabouts.  I'm using CurveEQ for general curve shaping during pre-mastering - maybe a tall slope or 2 but not super hi-Q notching, nothing drastic.  Sounds good so far.

Viewing the general shape of a reference wave at 60 points or 1/6 octave seems like it would be very interesting for wave shaping.  Probably even more interesting than trying to shape to a full spectrum.

I think it was said elsewhere on the forum, probably Jan again I think, that a full spectrum resolution snapshot with all its' beautiful peaks and valleys is probably only meaningful to the same wave it came from.

Long story short...

Yes I think a 60 point curve (and all other selection varities) is very good for the tuning of the nature being done by CurveEQ.

Thanks Aleksey


I agree about the 1/6 octave resolution -- that is the display mode I generally use anyway -- I find it gives a more "meaningful" representation of the music than full mode -- I think the detail in the full mode probably exceeds the resolution of the ear (wrt perception of spectral balance).

OK, you can download the newer version now.  Peak hold monitoring mode is planned for the next update.

Hi,

Good to hear, that Peak Hold will be added soon !!

Thanx Kylen, for bringing this back to attention.

( ... and good to hear, that You didn't forget to train Your ears ;-)

My wish for an additional monitor option would be :

Output with infinite peak hold.

bye, Jan
