Just purchased your mastering bundle, and I wanted to say that I think the Elephant is wonderful.  I have been struggling with some mixes with L2 and Peak Master.  I stumbled upon the Elephant through the Wavelab forums and downloaded the demo.  It was the sound I was looking for.  Very transparent.  Thank you so much. -- Would it be possible in future releases to have the option not to truncate and/or be able to apply a different dither?  Thanks again.

But I have already added an 'Off' option.  As soon as I get some more info on noise-shaping I'll surely add some dithering options.

Thanks!


Hi J,

I don't use Wavelab, but I think it should provide the very good UV22 dithering.

In Samplitude, we have the ( even better ?! ) POW-R dithering.

So, I never use any plugin dithering.

peace, Jan


Thanks Aleksey.  Sorry for the dumb question.  I misunderstood the Off option.

Hello Jan.  So far I think I prefer the Waves IDR to the UV22, at least for the music I'm doing.  I would like to try the POW-R, but I don't think it's available for Wavelab...

Id like to see what aleksey comes up with on his own!

On a seperate note I prefer the megabitmax dither(s) by far to pow-r and uv22.  I currently use the uv22 though, because Ive used it for quite a while now and have become very accustomed to it.

By the way: What happend to the HQ-mode elephant?  On a 1Ghz PIII the hq now takes 25% of the cpu power!!!  The version wich had this logic problem (after reopening a song there was always the non-hq version loaded), and wich hadn't the rms-meter was very less power-eating.

What did you implement there?  I really hope it is possible to bring it back to almost the power-eating level it once had.

Greetings.... and thanks for your wonderful sounding tools...

Maybe it happened that you've took the normal version for the HQ one?  HQ version is *meant* to be CPU-intensive, it takes 11% of my 1.3GHz Athlon (which is pretty comparable to 25% of 1GHz P3 due to a more efficient floating-point math of Athlons).  I have not changed anything in the audio-code of the HQ version (only its VST identifier was changed).

BTW, I've did some improvements to the GUI code (in v1.1f) so it may be less demanding now.


I know that the hq means cpu-intensive.

Hm, but I will check this out... because it once really was the hq-version (v1.1g or something).  I can say that there's a difference, because on our 1ghz we had songs wich we could play with the elephant in hq-mode and now we can't (without changing anything at the pc and the song, of course).

As I said, I will have a look.  I will also check it with my p4 2,8ghz.

Greetings...

Thanks for the fast response...
